They'll be smaller than 50x50. Probably somewhere around 15x15.

I like the colour idea but can we see them in the original TLS style colours aswell? That way we can compare the two, it might be nicer to go for a more monochromatic look rather than having colours that pop

Again looking great, fab work <3

I think maybe one overall colour that pops (a little?) for the icons so they don't get lost in the background, especially if they'll go down to 15x15 or 20x20... the purple is really nice, maybe a slightly darker purple?

Also, when they get shrunk down, the effect of the "metallic edge" on the button sort of gets lost and pixelated, maybe this should be darker to look cleaner?

Minor suggestions for such beautiful pieces <3

The current icons used on xf are 25x25 (see Lex's thing on https://thelifestream.net/xforums/in...-4#post-787231), that will fit 4 of them side by side. 50x50 would be possible but then 4 of them will be as big as the avatars are atm, which might be a bit much.

I'm concerned personally that the postbit will start looking a bit cluttered if there's >4 icons on there, .

So taking on Lex and Channy's feedback, we've come up with another potential set of icons for a more clean, modern, uniform look. Have only managed to come up with three at this moment, but we would love to get some feedback on these before we make more

Side note: While I like the look of the buster sword against the Lifestream Green badge, would it blend in a little too well with the rest of the colour scheme on Xf?

So, I was right in thinking that they looked a little big after all.

Resized properly...


*tries not to cry, cries a lot*

Yeah, I dunno if that would work after all. B's might be the safer bet. Looks proper modern as well. We'll see when it's resized.

EDIT:
I took the liberty of resizing your set B.

FUCKITY FUCK how did I miss this

Lemme resize these once more.

Both sets resized at 25x25 px

I have to admit, I love the stylized simplicity of the ones B posted. It definitely gives things a more modern feel and is easier to see! Although the designs are still a bit hard to make out at such a small size. Hmmm.

I think having 4 max at 50x50 looks good on the new forum.

BUT I also like the fact the cookie monster fake ones on the test thread are square. It makes it a pleasing grid, and also means the shape of the icon isn't adding distracting angles into the overall layout.

(I also think it might help with the overall clarity of the icons when they are shrunk down?)

I took a look at xf and changed the width and height a little, imo 50px is a bit too big. Something between 25 and 35 looks okay to me, although 35 is pushing it. That being said I think 25 is too small to do the icons justice.

Re: placement in the postbit - do remember to check where it lands on mobile. As it is now it lands under the user's user name right before their title. Which looks fine to me, but needs to be checked off.

I think consistently using Lifestream green as a background looks the best, it makes the motives themselves pop more

I have to agree with Fangu that 50px is far to large especially along side XF's minimalist aesthetic. They look great though.

I'm curious what they would look like with someone who has to many roles etc. lol. Like Yopy pointed out its a bit concerning thinking about how funky a postbit would look like in that circumstance.

I'm assuming since XF won't stretch the postbit it would just make a second line and leave an uneven amount of Icons on there huh? lol

I think we started off at roughly 35px; the default style for the user titles thing is that they're bars, one underneath the other, which I changed to icon + text at first (or which I can change to icon+text). Takes up quite a bit of spaec though.

That said, I really like some of the ones at 25x25; the weapons are recognizable enough. The shinra and soldier logos are a bit too smol though, hard to recognize as such. Although the soldier one on the left side works, as does the wolf dude.

An eyeboob would still work,

I think the shinra with green background looks fine tbh - if you know ff7 you'll know what it is

Re: making the colours uniform, I think that aesthetically works for the badges that Fancy first did where the item on the badge itself is fully coloured, because each item still has its own distinctive features. I don't personally think that would be as effective for the badges I did, however, because the 2D white shapes don't have the same visually associative triggers that colours do. Of course, if this isn't really an issue then s'all good.

I gave them all an update so we can explore all our options anyway
