SAC Alert SA aviator patches

Post by Ryleous Arkane (SA_ORION) on Mon 18 Oct 2010 - 12:32

Yes, the name says it all folks, however this thread is really meant for you Sam, seeing as you're the graphics guru of the SA. biggrin

Unfortunately the rest of the SA does not have these, I'm the only one here with an aviator patch! Wink (and I really need to work on mine some truth be told, it's a M$ Paint hack job at best) I'd like to change that though if some of you would so desire as part of your signature, since we all are pilots after all! However, I have basic graphic skills at best, aside from working in AutoCAD (vector based) whereas it's best to do stuff like this in raster based graphics programs. Also, it's a heckuva lot easier to find clip art or stuff off the net to incorporate into said patches and add what each person would want.

Anyway, this is just an idea I've juggled around with here recently, I'd enjoy some feedback from you guys and gals about this. Admiral, I'd also like to schedule some graphics lessons sometime if possible, I've got a full blown copy of Paint Shop Pro, but I've never really learned how to put it to use effectively. Learning to do so would also help take some of the load off you with the SA's graphics I'm sure as well. So let me know what you think, thanks! Very Happy Cool

Oh yes, to get an idea of what I'm talking about for the uninformed, see this LINK.

i can help you out with your patch ORION ! it would be a first lesson for you to redo it in a more... -NOT MADE IN MS PAINT- way !

And the badge is a good idea but shall not this be related to the pilot's wing ?

One patch for alpha/beta/omega for example ?

I've always had the idea to make such badges for the SA wings...

Yes! That's half the reason there Admiral, to add the pilot's wing designations... (to my own first of course Wink tongue ) I've already started recreating it in AutoCAD, but I'd much rather do it through Paint Shop Pro or some other nice high end raster graphics software.

Let me know when is a good time for you, I can hop on Teamspeak after work and we can go over this in real-time. Cool

Hmm... I might be able to help with this. I do know some stuff about photoshop. In fact, I've been working on something similar for myself, but I suck at art so I never really planned on publishing it or anything. Cool idea though! biggrin

Well... so far, my results of my AutoCAD re-drawing of the patch came out better than expected! Now I just gotta get the transparency working... Hell, maybe I'll just stick to what I know best, I'm definitely alot damn quicker in AutoCAD. Wink tongue biggrin

ROFLMAO!!! biggrin lol! I love Fud's thingamahoocher.

Wait wait wait! My hardware's being a bitch! I don't have the cooler looking version of the insignia I have in a format that I can send to you yet. It seems I don't have the right link cable... Damn TI... Razz I can however send you the one that looks incredibly boring and the only purpose that it serves is to show you the basic shape without all the pixelyness that makes it look cool. I'll find that link cable though....

can you save the images as SVG files ORION ? If you do i'll be able to open them with GIMP and apply some gradient and depth to your patches !

And FUD deserves a little rest guys, he's done great recently and he mostly make us laugh on purpose, at least it seems that way ! Hope its true ! Hehe !

Esssshhh... I'll see what I can do with the file format Admiral, I'll get back to you on that.

And with Fud, come now, I redid the facepalm as a patch as a tribute to him! biggrin Besides, most aviator patches have to have a degree of sarcastic humor to them! Fud's is perfect! Wink If I hadn't already made my own about a year ago, I'd do something similar with probably looney tunes characters with like Elmer Fudd as ORION or something simular! biggrin biggrin biggrin Anyway, if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at I say!

Guys...... I'm flattered.... I honestly can say, you've made my day! You've made my month! You'e made my YEAR! oh wait, I thought you said Fud is perfect. not Fud's is perfect, meaning My aviator is perfect, Not matter, I'm still flattered. But there you go.

I do wonder why I'm the facepalm of doom though. Does being me kil people? or harm them in any way?..... Well, there you go, the perfect outcome of.... ME!
[EDIT] Just saw the bit under the Facepalming person, Turns out facepalms don't affect non-aliens (Humans) hats good! or is that bad? scratch

@ Fleet admiral. I don't think I was trying to be funny..... until you said I was.... (I'll just go with the flow)
And just to say guys, I got 6 facepalms yesterday, Keep them comming! Razz

You giving the facepalm of doom to the eeeevvvil aliens is a GOOD thing Fud. Wink biggrin (and it's saying you've done it for the past 14 years, which is about how long ago you were born tongue ) Anyway, seriously let me know if you honestly like it or you want something else, I have no idea yet what to make for others except for you, so I took the liberty to do so. biggrin

You can copy and paste the link of the image up above to your signature Fud if you want, however I'm going to try to remove the white portion soon, hopefully me and Sam can figure out a way to keep it high rez and use transparency.

Anyway, here's the next contestant! biggrin biggrin biggrin

No Michael, they are merely WIP examples at the moment, soon as I figure out how to effectively "transparent" the white area, I'll re-upload them. Cool
