This is a rather nitpicky minor point though... There might be a reason to want all the icons to be similarly shaped...?
was the original "production icon". That one was more of test than anything else.
And perhaps learning should blue a light blue colour, so that we can use green for growth? ... Or maybe not, as it doesn't match the resource icons... though I find those rather unintuitively coloured... ah well.
The colors arent a problem, they are easily changed... Those colors i made were more or less random.
I agree fully with that last post of yours Geoff, make Construction more square (how about a modification of the factory with one of the smokestakes being lowered into place by a crane).
Why? If i do that, it looks too much like the "production icon"...
I think a Hexagonal molicule with prongs on each point would make a nice Growth Icon, its rather race nutral as most alien races are asumed to be carbon based. It will also provide a destinct shape. Also I sugjest we make Economics Orange in color.
Not sure what that means... the "hexagonal molicule with prongs" part.
The whole point of these icons is to make some sence about the UI and not about the "freeorion" universe. Im not seeing any problems of using human figures or even a micky mouse if it works for the UI/user.
Id like to see these icon stuff things in game, it would be easier to see if they work. I hope there will be some test version to try these out...
