The guy with the rifle seems to be straight out of some propaganda poster - not that that's a bad thing, I like :)

the revolution-icon is a strange mix...

1) picked guy from a communist propaganda page
2) added rifle from gunshop-owning redneck´s site o.O

They do look good. What is the icon next to building, technology researched? It needs some finetuning. Care to work on icons for diplomacy, spying, ship buildt as well? :)

sure :)

the icon was supposed to be a space base... i know it doesn´t work well, i´ll better redo it from scratch.

what do u think about the blue glow? meanwhile, i think white & sharp edges (like in the UI suggestion) would fit the rest of the design better.

Glow looks nice, I like it, color though - I don't know yet, blue fit's current better than white, having white borders would mean redesigning the whole theme of ours, which probaply will be good to do at some point. But let's finish designing the UI for 0.2 first, before we start discussing what kind of theme would be suit us best. I'll open up thread about the it later.

What about an icon for research... like, research complete, new research branch available, etc...??

Cool. Those icons look good. Though the espionage one, I am not sure that a magnifying glass represents espionage. There must be something better. What about an image of a spy. Though how to make the spy look like a spy. Maybe the spy has a question mark to represent, that the enemy don't know he's a spy. Though if anything better can be thought of . . .

i think the espionage icon is great. but i don't like the diplomacy icon, because is shows humans. if i play klackon, i don't want to see humans in my sitrep...it robs me the feeling of being klackon :) the same problem would occur with a spy icon showing a (human) spy....or tech graphics(we should pay attention to this in future)

thx for reminding, i simply forgot about the research icon ;)

i tried espionage with a spy too, but i didn´t like it.
1) like pd said, it´s race-specific.
2) you have to make him look like a detective or something, with a hat, which makes it look very old-fashioned.

i just couldn´t find a better solution for diplomacy... i thought maybe a signed contract, but it´s hard to do with just a few pixels... any other ideas?
