Post Some flags and logos and model ideas
Here's a couple of flags and an emblem I made for the Blue Pirates, East Vindia Trading Co. and Blue Photon since they don't have flags right now. Or at least Blue Photon does not. Anywho, good time as any to use them. Also, what do y'all think of the idea of certain major stations having thier own models? For example, places like Free Market has a city-like feel with holographic advertisements all around, East Vindia looks like a spaceport, Blue Photon pretty much like it is now with the inner and outer rotating station and ship yards. Lavanite could be some sort of heat-scarred station. XYZ could be triplet stations with each letter painted on the hulls. The Restaurant at the End of the Universe could have a dining hall and giant 50s style neon sign. Blue Photon Processing could be a dulled, dirtied-up version of Beta Antares. And so on.

Anywho, the attachments.

Not sure what we would use those flags for. If they got shrunk down to in-game flag size, they probably wouldn't be too recognizable.

But different models for space bases in different galaxies would be great. Someone just needs to make them.

I'll fiddle with the designs to make them more flag-freindly.

Yea, if only there was a player with too much spare time who enjoys modeling and has characters named for astronomers... But, alas, where to find one? :P

Small Blue Photon Flag. Keeps enough detail to be recognizable I suppose. Kinda also looks like an old sailing vessel's helm wheel, maybe a hint at their merchanting and some link to ancient seafaring trade?

love the east vindia XD

the flags could be used behind the people faces in mission dialogues or as a background for the station dialogue when docked at stations owned by them.

special backgrounds for comstom gal stations would be awesome. I am still working on that defualt background, gotta add more detail. Just one of the many things i forgot about.

It's something we can add to the list of things to do. Maybe I'll do some rough sketches tomorrow if I'm feeling creative enough. Kinda having an artistic block atm. >.<

Post Re: Some flags and logos and model ideas
Made so more flags.

Top Row:
- Koto Research - since the koto is the national instrument of Japan, I used a Japanese-like flag.
- Greaseballs - An Iron Cross that matches the hull color of most HRs. Iron Cross is common in biker/hot rod culture.

Middle Row:
- Blue Photon - Stylization of the Beta Antares Shipyards
- Star Runners - Shooting star

Second Middle Row:
My first East Vindia Flag, which could be used in bigger displays and a simplified flag that's better for the small flags.

Bottom Row:
- Free Market Shield

Post Re: Some flags and logos and model ideas
I really liked these flag / logo ideas so I went ahead and made a few of them into 20x14 flags for them that can be used in-game. If you wouldn't mind (they're your idea / design) I can do the rest of them too because they're really quite good.

Just a thought I had, but have it so that when you dock at a base owned by any team(AI or player), have a huge team logo/flag above the missions pane.

It would be a great use of the larger models.

How's college at Penn?

Maybe the stations at XYZ could even LOOK like the letters X, Y, and Z, Coppy?
