Replacement graphics for current Vassal module (WIP ideas) Tue, 19 May 2015 11:28
Hi guys,

given how great the Vassal module for M44 currently is (and kudos to all maintainers/developers on it, for instance Bart for the latest version and any previous ones!), there was a call earlier for graphic replacements for the current rectangular unit icons. They are funcional, yes, but in context of the overall graphics they could definitely be improved.

One way was for instance using colorized top-view graphics from wire models, but for me personally this detracts from the M44 experience, especially given how the M44 Online application is "beautiful" with its 3D rendered unit graphics.

I myself tried my hand on it and I am pretty satisfied with what I was able to come up with so far (of course it is all WIP yet).

Please see for yourself and tell me if I might be on the right track for the Vassal module!

Please note the first picture is without shadows yet, they help separate the graphics from the background much better (as can be seen in the second picture already).

Also, the US INF shape has changed between these two pictures, now it is less hunched over.

The Andy Warhol of memoir i would say.
It sure is a diffrent look, i have seen some other ones before.
I personally am a little stuck on how they are now since long, but i'm the last person to not welcome another view and therefore i thank you for your contribution.

Thx Jaz!

Do you perhaps know where I could find pictures of those other designs? Kinda curious myself - and perhaps inspiration can be drawn as well.

I remember it was posted on the vassal module memoir 44 download page, however i don't see it any more so propably it was deleted.
Personally i like the Flames of war units, but that module was never finalysed.
But great artwork still.
