When will the icons for UW and CP teams be visible in game finder??
Seems like we got Simyin logo right after team was usable but UW and CP logos takes forever.

The people drawing them haven't done them yet. Simyin was done by someone else and they only had the time to do that one.

Fouly recently said he might have time again soon to work on one of the missing badges. But if you can draw please feel free to give it a go. Smile

Not that it is an important matter at all but what happened with the logos? Or is this a delicate topic..(?)

Christer made the Simyin himself, a lot of other have made logos for pact and UW but they are not used for some reason. If you use Wreckages "Betterfumbblexperience" you can see them iirc: https://fumbbl.com/p/blog&c=Wreckage&id=17456

Note: Wreckage mentioned a few weeks ago that an update in Firefox has broken the Betterfumbbleexperience... but that an update to that add-on is working it's way thru the Firefox approval process.

The team logos in general were originally in .svg format (scalable vector graphics, not pixel art), so they scale very cleanly across all the resulting sizes that are used on site. They also have a common feel to them because the same artist did them all. That artist is no longer about the place, and no one else has turned up who makes really nice .svg art and has the time to volunteer it for the site.

Same story with the player icons, that was pretty much all one pixel artist for all the regular teams and almost all of secret league, and they are no longer about the place, and the rest of us just modify that original work now and then to make slight changes.

That's my understanding of the topic, gathered from various moments in chat and various other people asking over the years. This is a volunteer project, hardware and bandwidth costs at least partly covered by site donations, programming the client and site code and the art is a huge amount of hours from a handful of very talented people when they had time and interest and now it's less people and a bit of making do.

If anyone's got good .svg skills (could make, like, the current team icons, eh) and wants to contribute, I'm sure Christer would love to hear from you. I have trouble making stick figures with it, not really my thing.
