After looking at the changes in color for the psi storm, i decided to do some myself. Some experimentation led to dual-color ones, but i dont know how...
they are all transparent, but not yet .dds files.
UPDATE: I finally found out how i should be coloring them, but im too lazy to post, so if you need a recoloring, i can do it correctly now. PM me, as i will check my email more often. now that i look at them, they are terrible....
Hi guys. I'd like to request a Napalm Burninator icon with light blue flames. It's for my Warbot hero's Arm Burninators ability. This ability enables the Warbot to shoot blue flames. Of course I will credit the artist. Here's the original pic:
Hi. I'd like to request that someone convert these files into .dds. I download 2 dds converters, but wasn't able to get them to work. Also, could you please tell me what programs you use to convert them (if you don't feel like converting them). Thanks.
Hi jaxter. I want the ignition flame to be blue cuz the Warbot's flamethrower shoots out blue flames. I like the missile pods uncolored. Thank you very much! I will credit you.
Hi jaxter. For some reason, the "button layer" that goes over the icon doesn't appear in the unit's command menu. Know what I mean? Usually, there's a little button-like layer that goes over the icon. Green if you have a terran command menu, orange if you have a zerg command menu, etc... But for some reason this layer doesn't show up. The problem is it makes the ability look like a passive ability that can't be clicked instead of an ability that can be activated. Would you be able to fix that? Btw, I only need the T82 Missile Pod icons.
Strangely enough, the problem doesn't occur when I use the icon for a weapon. The proper button layer shows up over the icon in this case. I don't know why. The problem must have something to do with the icon, 'cause I used another icon and the button layer showed up.
If you are gonna try to fix the problem, could you use this image instead:
(I mirrored the image so it would look better as a weapon icon)
@Marikh7: I converted both the missile pods pictures into .dds, and I tried editing the Napalm Burninator icon, although the end result made it looks kind of like a blue beam instead. I'll try improving it (Maybe reduce the white in the 'flames'), but here's what it looks like currently:
EDIT: tried to fix it, but it still seems to be lacking somewhere.
EDIT: ah damn... i just can't seem to get it right. i'll leave it to someone else for this T_T
Yeah, i just realized a big problem. There are currently more people willing to do work than there are people requesting, LOL. Just check back whenever you're bored and have free time. Recently, i've been quite busy, glad there are a lot of people willing to help.
I think the different color psi-storms that you made are only lacking a black background. If you add black behind the transparency, they should all start showing their true colors. The psi-storm icon doesn't have transparency like that to begin with, its only a simple rounded square border. I'm lazy so i just open up the original psi-storm dds and just copy the alpha channel directly onto my new icons.
want me to add those to first post still? or do you plan to try adding black background? I uploaded the alpha channel from the official dds icons on this post if you need a reference.
On the first post of this thread, i included a tutorial on how to set up Photoshop with the Nvidia plugin, and also Gimp with its gimp-dds plugin. Does neither of those work for you? I also hear that Paint.net allows exporting to DDS (possibly needs a plugin), but I haven't looked into that one yet.
Nothing to see here folks... lemme just sneak these in here.. so i can have links to put on the first post... xD
