So, I played around a bit with some ideas for an icon, I tried to replicate the look of the SpaceNav from above(as much as you can in 48x48 pixels that will down-sample well.) and this is what I've got so far....
SpaceNav.ico (Contains all three)
Any ideas on improvements or changes?
Yeah, I was planning on using Illustrator to do the final, I wasn't at a computer that had it installed though so I just did a quick mock-up of the idea before I lost it, and also to get input on basics before really spending time on it.. I created a few more, but they're on my machine at work so I'll have to post them in the AM. Other than the jaggies, any thoughts?
I'd agree with sama, we'll probably need a couple variations to indicate status. One in red initially would be good.
Though, when we're using this with a FE, you won't really see it anyhow. I just figured it'd be there to allow changing some settings etc. :-)
So, here we go, we have size 16-48 with both blue and red versions, I didn't package an ICO file yet though, let me know if you like them and I'll get it posted, how is development going on the app? any more progress? Anywho, here they are...
Hope you like! if you've got any ideas, let me know, I'll make it happen...
They've got my vote!
Things are progressing on the app. I'm in the process of building an object model that should be pretty easy to serialize to/from XML, and hopefully easy to understand.
I should have some time this weekend to bang away at it. You can always browse the SourceForge CVS and see when I last updated the code.
Keep in mind that the CVS stuff is VERY unstable, and very much so in development. I'm updating what I do every time I work on the project, since I work on it both at work, and at home, so the CVS is my central repository for changes.
Sounds good, I'll get those icons packaged up later tonight and post-em. The SpaceNavigatorHIDTestJig version I'm using is from Jan 26, 2007 2:10pm... seems pretty cool so far... I'll check out the latest this weekend... Hey in RR skins, do you have the ability to [ tab ] or [ shift ] + [ tab ] to the buttons? I was thinking that would make it pretty easy for navigating using something like the iDrive skin using the LR rotational axis of the space nav. Just a thought...
