Pictures for the guides. (Opinions Needed)
« on: August 22, 2013, 01:55:03 pm »
New Detailed pictures laying out ship information. Opinions needed on whether you like this example or what needs to be added or removed on the example.

Example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gyt1bha0lvpbu5b/WORK.png


Please reply!

Remember! This is just a example. It is simple and is missing information!

To clarify, these will hopefully be used in the final version of the Community Guide along my ship guides. They're supposed to add to or replace the current pictures I use for ship loadouts!

Text colors are a bit difficult to read, but maybe it's just my bad eyes.  :D Otherwise the pictures are clear and easy to follow.

+1, the text colours and fonts have very poor legibility against that background.

Quite. If you had some colour ideas that would help. Even a new idea of a background image helps.

Light grey (10-15%) non-textured background with black text in an easy reading font.  Up the font size by 2 or 4 points, use a plain font like Calibri or Gill Sans.  Keep the underscore and the pointer line in the blue/green you're using for the component highlight.

Thank you for your reply! I originally had the background light grey XD

I like it!
Much information on a small area. And the visual aspect is quite fancy (as well as it's easy to understand) too.

EDIT: Both of these colors would go well with the background I think.

I re did all of the thing and this is a basic layout. It will not be exactly like this. There will still be branches like is Rainer's still. This is just showing small highlighted parts

The gun hardpoints are a little difficult to see, but I wouldn't know how to change that - once the branches are there, I'm sure it'll be fine. I'm entirely convinced with it the way it is now :)

why don't you make the background in dark/medium grey with keeping the ship and text colored? This will definetely accent the info

What if you make the colors a bit more saturated? And I'm not sure why don't you want to compile three pictures in one - it would be possible to make the ship drawing bigger to see details cleaner. And different parts will be distinguished easier.

Gah, forget my criticizm, it's always easy to attack what other people do, and you made a great job really!
