Oh, that's a placeholder. There's a lot of those, for lack of original ones.
Replacing them is absolutely fine.

Hey Ice I'm working on something not too sure if you would consider pushing the envelope for Star Trek TNG feel, but tell me what you think

Sweet! :up:
Is it possible to have a central image, the Borg insignia, to bring up the Assets screen? Besides, the insignias look really cool in there :wink:
Maybe make it hexagons, like an hex in the middle (with their insignia), and 6 surrounding hexes, each being one of the buttons?
I'm not sure about the Menu and BotF2 parts, the (old) Fed one has them, but the new ones (Card, Kling) don't. We should keep them all consistent? And in terms of size too (can't tell if this one is the same approximate size?).

The colors should also match with the UI, if possible - or the other way around of course.

Also, some people mentioned (requested?) that the buttons be identified (as the images might not be too telling of what they are for) with some text (Galaxy, Science, etc). What do you think?
(Not sure if I can add a tooltip or something)

Great job as usual!!
When it is ready, give me a shout, and I'll include it in the next release!

Attaching a mockup. Sorry for butchering your work, didn't have much time to do something decent, but I think it explains what I mean?

Yes, it is possible. I used the colors green and yellow off display panels used in TNG, and VOY. I like the organic feel of the green circles and yellow lines of the borg display, but that may be a little difficult to pull off.

Looks great!
The image is kind of small, I can't really tell, but I'd say the Galaxy map should be the leftmost hex, and the Main Menu the rightmost one? I think it's what makes more sense?

Can you upload the images to BitBucket please?
Thanks!

I've taken a shot at doing my own take on the right click menu popup for the Borg
It's not totally complete, and it a little rough around some edges, but I'm open to suggestions..

It looks much better with the (starmap) background! Not sure if it'll be easy to split it into the individual buttons though - and to align them all correctly afterwards... :shock:

Thanks!
We're going to need a poll to choose which to use... :wink:


We still need GCMs for the Feds, Roms, Dominion (and Ferengi). While you guys are hot, hehe.

Wow I just saw Valcoren's version now, and I like his better than mine! Well done!

as for mine and splitting them: I have all of the individual buttons as their own files, and the base without any of the buttons.. I can send them via mail if you like.

BTW this was litteraly my first ever contact with Photoshop.. i guess you can tell I'm a newb :grin:

Really nice job for your first!
Sure, send them.

We could use either your format or Val's format (the remaining one after we choose one for the Borg) for one of the other empires, maybe? Which would be the best combination?

As I said, I personally like Val's better, since the Borg is structured like a hive, I like the bee hive hex structure..

I could adapt (no pun intended) mine to be either of the other races.. perhaps the Federation? The Dominion has a different shaped logo (diamond), so it would take some additional work for theirs to fit. Romulans? Dunno..

Ok I'll send them to your mail

Ok.
If you can adapt yours, that's great.
