The idea of 3D preview is actually pretty good on itself.

Phantom XL - Windows Icon

Postby MetalBeast » Sun Jul 04, 2010 4:22 pm

Hallo friends,

because I'm lost in my very complex folder-structure,
I had the idea for creating Phantom-XL windows-icon,
so it would be easier for me to find the right folder :D

I thought, I should share it with you ;)
The ico-file contains this icon-sizes:
256x256
128x128
64x64
48x48
32x32
24x24
16x16

Just in case somebody missed it: MetalBeast has adopted a Design made by -JoFFa- and created the Phantom XL from it, and he has -JoFFa-'s explicit permission to use his design.

Despite what has been said elsewhere here, -JoFFa- isn't banned.

Back to business. :)

Regarding other ship models: The only other one I'd like to add to D2X-XL is something like the Magnum, the design of which I like pretty much. The Phoenix is so butt-ugly that it drives tears to my eyes everytime I see it. :P The BP is not much better, and I don't like the idea of a dual Gauss equipped too much either.

Of course MB is absolutely free to improve the Magnum. Once the Phantom XL and Magnum are available in D2X-XL, I would like to offer them as ships with different specs than the standard Pyro (Phantom: lighter armor and faster, Magnum: Heavier armor and slower than the standard ship; probably also some differences in armament).

MB, vielleicht kann man die beiden Flügelwulste des Magnum ja kantiger gestalten - die passen, rundlich wie sie sind, so gar nicht zum übrigen Design.

Edit:

D2X-XL 1.15.77 Beta 5 with a bug fix regarding lighting of objects.
