Terribly overdone more than anything, keep it simple in both imagery and color palette.

I take it the wings on the TR logo is you're thing? The current one on you're website is really good just play around with that one. why not make a thin ominous red glow around the wings? Maybe place the wording Xplicit just above the TR logo on the top in bold military lettering.
Try turning the current green glow into a battle ribbon(colors in grays,blacks and reds) of you're style and place lots of bullet holes and scratches into it. Just an idea to make it simple and more gritty if you get me.

could maybe do the new Armour and Helmet if i knew someone with it and was willing to do a photo shoot with me... don't think using the in game model would look as good as a logo though...

I'm not that satisfied with the current header tbh. It really doesn't say anything. I made a bunch of them that were alot better but as I kept changing the laylout of the forums on request I just made that one really quick to go with the current, green layout. In fact I much preferred the black/red layout and some of the earlier headers.

I have a bad habit of not saving the psd files if I had I'd be glad to provide them for easy modification of the current one header which probably concists 5 or 6 objects/layers. Simply cutting out the current logo from a jpeg and covering it up with filters looks horrible. Use a format that supports transparent backgrouns

I good tip is not to work on anything like this for more than 30 minutes, it tends to get messy and over worked. It's better to back it up a bit or start over completely. Simple and informative is key. Always try to use a format that support transparent backgrounds aswell. I've faked a transparent background on the current (jpeg) one by matching the background color on the forum for various reasons. It's not ideal since it would like like crap if the background color changes.

This is some of my favorite work (it's actually a bunch of forum signatures for an old guild). Simple, clean and informative.







Silverbullet, I like your last pic. It's exactly what I'm talking about.

When i have a few mins, maybe tonight if your on groundtrooper, i'll upscale my rendering to get a better image, and i'll borrow you for a private photo shoot lol, is there a way to disable the hud + gun ?

Cheers Morgothic Smile

As for the site all tht i'd recommend doing is changing the green to red, its easy enough to do, find the theme the website is running, open the css in Dreamweaver, find every color code for that green txt and replace it with a TR red color code, ive done it enough times over the years.

Removing the HUD and gun is done by clicking CTRL + F10/11 (10 for HUD 11 for gun)

Nah, I already used a more TR-type color blend like I wrote in my post. People immediatley started complaining thier eyes hurt and a bunch of stuff like that (Personally I found that just as easy to read as this). I changed color, theme and another group of people complained instead it went on like that and this is like v.6.5 of the forum laylout Razz

The current skin and general appearance of the forum is the only one people haven't complained about really. This isn't what I think the forum should look like, far from it. And it's not that I don't want or can change it (I'd much prefer a more military like look over the whole punk-thing.) But rather that this is what I've been instructed to make.
