So for home modders or the great game designers. This is what I've played with.

I've really enjoyed the game so far and look forward to each update.

I'm getting very good at modding the main text files. I add ships and parts and generally like to shorted development and productions times to make the game faster. Really a lot of fun.

I've taken to adding mod sections to the beginning of the major files and the en.txt under stringtables.

I'm a business programmer so I doubt I could help out but if you just need someone to add the Graphic line to the techs, I would be happy to help. ex. graphic = "icons/tech/planetexpresssmall.png"
graphic = "icons/ship_parts/Green_shield.png"

Futurama, Dr. Who, or any other obviously copyright restricted images from another source aren't appropriate, as you don't have rights to distribute those images. You can use them in your own game if you want, but please don't post such images for (presumably) potential inclusion in FreeOrion distributions.

For the aircraft carrier, unless you took the picture, it's probably not acceptable legally. It's also not consistent with existing art styles to use a cropped photograph of that sort.

Regardless of legalities, several of those images are too finely detailed, or lack a strong (or any) silhouette, for use as icons.

OK, maybe the Green and Black shield icons will be of some use at least. The are just tweaks of FreeOrion icons.

I will be careful to not post any other [sup]TM[/sup] images.

The Carrier is a public domain image of the retired USS Ranger that I cropped. But I fully understand it is not likely to be used except as an optional mod by players.

Are any of the images of any use? If so can the project use any more like those?
I was just hoping to help a little.

The modified armour and shield icons possibly... I'm not sure what's presently needed for part icons and am not generally the person who decides which to use.

Xentronium Armour and both Black & Plasma Shield are using the 'unknown' ancient pyramid design currently and could do with something. Plus Diamond and Crystal armours are using what appears to me to be the same icon.

It'd be nice to see somethign for them but art manip is even further out of my ability range than original coding so nowt t'do with me ;-)

(I like the idea of the aircraft carrier converted, but it wouldn't really fit that well, and the Valiant/Helicarrier concept has already been done a bit)

As the others have already indicated, the shield icons and the one you called "alloyed armor" are most likely usable, I'd like to include them. However, to do that I need a statement from you that you release them under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license. That's the license the FO project uses for artwork. See here for statements on the licenses FO uses.

Is there any generic form letter I can use to release them? Should I send it by Email or just in thread?

All 3 are my modifications of existing FreeOrion icons using several different programs to make the changes. I release them to the FreeOrion group for unlimited use and distribution.

You can add a statement within the thread alongside your graphics, i.e. I release these graphics under ... license in question ...

I've also seen someone add a similar statement to their signature. I guess that works as well.
