Still too wide. My mental image of bomb stabilizer fins is barely any wider than the main body.

Width is OK, but can it be a bit less tall so that there's more gap between the top and bottom and the icon? Also, the border needs to be a bit thicker to match the other indicators such as colonizing, as in the attached image.

Done. Also decreased the alpha channel a little (ie: made it more transparent) on the fill to match the other ones a little better.

Another improvement needed icon. It's supposed to be a present, in a similar style to the bombard, invading, or colonizing overlay textures.

Also, some sort of icon to indicate "automatically pick for me" in general, or perhaps specifically "automatically pick between aggressive and passive based on ships in the new fleet"?

Also also, top menu bar button icons for messages and empires windows? With mouseover and clicked variants?

Too culturally specific for me, I only found out what the red flag in old email clients was inspired by this month, most European countries, for example, have delivery slots in doors and you post letters in pillarboxes on the streets, etc. Dislike any icons in an SF game that require a fairly in depth knowledge of one specifc country/culture (and if I didn't know about the redflag/mailbox thing with all the US films/TV that I watch then it's fair to assume most non-US types are clueless as well).

That's in addition to a standard / unhighlited variant.

I needs to be in the same very simple and partly transparent style as the bombardment, colonizing, and invasion icons. Also in, or very close to, the colour of my version.
