Re: Your graphics in Project Mankind

Hopefully this answers your question. 1. You have released the artwork for FreeOrion under the CC-by-SA license, which will hold until your own copyright expires (when it will become public domain). Since it is a free license other people outside FO may use the artwork as well, under the restriction...

Re: galaxy map information modes/overlays

different radii for different sections give much more information at a glance, than having the same radius Could you elaborate on this? What additional information is or can be shown in those charts, compared to the normal pie charts? I’m not sure if I understood what I was to elaborate on, so plea...

Re: galaxy map information modes/overlays

Maybe like this?: http://www.optisch-edel.de/fo/differentradii2.png Let the amount of shown values decide about the angle and the radius shows the amount? I don't know if that's what's being suggested, but IMHO the "normal" pie graphs in your first example are much easier to comprehend. A small not...

Ah, sorry! Not meaning to offend or anything like it. I'm just fond of brainstorming. And the thing for me with brainstorming is that anything goes, at least in the first stage.

No point. I was playing with ideas in my head seeing if something could come from it, and I thought that I might as well share those thoughts. And, no, I don't see any problems either (except that one with the fonts perhaps). If each planet has just one name (renaming replaces the original Star + Nu...

Re: Satellites, federations, expansion and old races

Please, let single body names be customisable... Planets can be renamed, if that's what you mean... A little rant from my side... Thinking multiplayer games, diplomacy. Scenario In the System of Gayatri (two medium sized planets). Player A owns Gayatri I (and has renamed it to Last Defence), Player...

Nice! Regarding the Moon sickle variant, I had a flash of the symbol for Ajña cakra ... :lol: (And this just sprung to my mind. There is a small chance of reading the title as FREE RION.) I really like the 'soft squary' font, perhaps even softer E's? (I'm no artist though.) And with the background i...

"I like $NAME. {$NAME?M=He;F=She} is nice." and for $NAME, a sting like this would be passed: "Bill(M)(S)(Q)(W)" where S, Q and W are flags that don't matter for the above string, so aren't checked for, and are ignored. Some questions to see if I have understood this. There is a table of strings (o...
