What?  Need icons?  For the wiki?  What kind of icons?  What is an inventory menu?

For the game.


Image  Here is a shot of the inventory menu from FF1, see the little swords and stuff next to the names, we need those for our inventory menu.  All the details are in the wiki under artwork needs.

SON OF A SHAZNICKEL!  I better get on that quick!

You mean a different picture for EVERY inventory item in the game??!!!  Instead of a generic symbol like in FF1?  That would be insanely awesome!!!!  Wow.

Heh, no not that many. I guess that would be something we could work towards, but not from the start.  From the wiki, here are the ones we need to start:

  1.  Recovery item icon (Things like health potions, status recovery etc...)
  2. Armor pieces. (We have leg, head, arm, body armor slots)
  3. Weapons (Not completely sure on all the different weapon types yet. Once this task is assigned we can create a thread in the artwork forum, about this)

So there are generic icons for the different types.  The list above is to start.
I'm not completely sure how many different types of weapons we're going to have, but we'll want a different icon for each type.

:devil: I might be able to handle this "weapon icons" thing, based on a wee little project we've had going on over at wesnarf.  More later (eg. demo images in about 3 hours).

These are the ones that are done. I'll update this image as more get made. Some are for weapons, some are for magic spells.

Even with these, more general pixelated icons would be useful for menus (eg. a single, 16x16ish sword image for all weapons, a shield image for protective things, etc. These images that I linked below would serve as the "portraits" of individual weapons, the pixel icons would serve as icons to represent a general class of weaponry/items in menus.

Yeah those are really skilled.  You made them all?

Now what are you saying, that they can be used for Allacrost instead of Wesnoth?  They aren't accepting them?

No, he's saying we can use them for both. I'm not sure if we need an icon for every single weapon/armor/spell/etc. in the game though. That seems like a lot of work to me, especially if they all have to be of this quality. :eyespin: But maybe we can use some of them to represent a general category instead. :shrug:

As we discussed, I moved this thread to the public forum since there's no reason for us to keep it private. :) Also note that I added an "urgency" rating for each task in the list, so that we know what's important to finish ASAP and what can wait until later. :approve:

The helmet is still a badly done WIP. A scroll, a Potion and breastplate are in the workshop.

Image Zere eez more:

I've included edits of 3/4 of the icons that fmunoz submitted (not the poisoned dagger, though).

I think this is perhaps a dozen more icons than were here before. We're getting a little collection here, ja?
