Icons

Postby mj12games » Wed Nov 17, 2010 6:01 pm

I really like the idea of putting icons for special abilities on the unit counters... (thanks to Blackhawk33 for putting them on his ST counters. :))

So, the question is: what should the icons be?

Neat and clean.

APC is very understandable.

VTOL I don't quite get, but it stands out and is easy to read.

It's supposed to be a stylized version of the modern military symbol for rotary-wing aircraft... I'm not all that thrilled with it, actually.

I must admit I am not so sure about adding these, more than one would be crowded, The Thunderer with Three :shock:

Why not the usual NATO symbolic? (maybe a little bit tweaked in a futuristic way) Just a thought.
