Yeah, I'd be very interested in some clearer player icons too.

I dont really know if it has to be a particular color.

If you post the tga's or bmp's or whatever I might be able to compile them into the right vtf files. I've made crosshairs that work.

I'll give'er a shot as well, when I get the chance.

It's not like 1.3 where one colour was transparent. You need to make an alpha channel where black is transparent, white is opaque and grey values represent levels of transparency between.

You need to save it as a DXT5 or DXT3 texture and use the No Mipmapping and No Level of Detail flags as their hud sprites.

Thanks Jed.,

Here's my 1st attempt, I'll get rid of the white around the Axis, but my buddies and the 1/2 price wings at the bar are beckonning :p

Do you want any white border around the Allied? or even black around the Axis? I could make none on either.

I've done this too. :) This was also my first attempt with transparent textures.

Rabid, could you do a Iron Cross version of that, please?:)

Like this?

Please forgive the absolute hugeness as I do not like running lower than 1600 by 1200 and with such an up-close screenshot the icon gets big and really pixely. At least it shows the anti-aliasing. :)

Oh, and I do not much care for the default Iron Cross Icon because it is kind of smudgey. I need a little time, but I think can make it look much nicer. :D

Yeah, that's nice. I can't wait.:)
