I can use images and so forth Sam, but AutoCAD doesn't do texturing and 3D effects... I have to export these things out sadly. Additional stuff like you're referring to will have to be "post-processing" in either PSP7 or Paint.net and I'm not exactly a "pro" with either... There is a limit to what I can pull off from due to the conversion effects from AutoCAD to digital image editors as well.

Right now I'm not worried about that kind of effects, just whatever I can pull within my "skill set". Later when I get better at Paint.net or PSP7's effects and so forth, I can do more "finishing" touches.

The design and colours are a synopsis of principal elements of the country's flag history. Individual colours, or colour combinations represent different meanings for different people and therefore no universal symbolism should be attached to any of the colours.

The only symbolism in the flag is the V or Y shape, which can be interpreted as "the convergence of diverse elements within South African society, taking the road ahead in unity.

The theme of convergence and unity ties in with the motto Unity is Strength of the previous South African Coat of Arms.

Kind Regards

Allow me to answer your question after a little study of Rieben's SAAF background...

It's a "flying cheetah", the actual graphics are taken straight from a SAAF's 2 Squadron flight patch of that unit, aka nicknamed "The Flying Cheetahs" of which Riebens used to serve under years ago. Thumb Up 2nd Squadron was a pretty well known and distinguished squadron of the South African Air Force as you may already know from Riebens RL background and story found elsewhere on the forum. 2nd Squadron was instrumental in WWII battles that took place in the East Africa and North Africa combat theaters.

To add .. And In Korea where the Sqn earned the United States Presidential Unit Citation for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy on or after 7 December 1941.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidential_Unit_Citation_(US)

On the last day of the Korean war the SAAF 2 Sqn recorded the largest number of combat sorties flown on Sabres during the course of a single day of operations. On that day they used 14 operational aircraft to fly 41 combat sorties. These last missions were directed against any Communist attempt to bring combat aircraft into North Korea and consisted of fighter sweeps along the Yalu and Ch'ongch'on Rivers

One of only 9 non-US country armed forces units to be awarded the Unit Citation. The Rest of the awards have all gone to American Armed Forces units.

Kind Regards

I finally finished Rasann's patch yesterday while the forums were being overhauled! Thumbsup



Thanks for being patient buddy! It's an awesome patch and a nod to one of my favorite factions in Mechwarrior/Battletech, the Draconis Combine, aka House Kurita, a successor house of the Inner Sphere. The text says "Way of the Warrior" referring to the Bushido code, which it's seven virtues are listed below it in non-kanji japanese, "Gi, Yu, Jin, Rei, Makoto, Meiyo, Chugo" and translate to: Rectitude, Courage, Benevolence, Respect, Honesty, Honor and Loyality. Thumb Up

Thanks TWC! biggrin Once the Omega Wing positions get straightened out, I'm gonna redo all the patches and re-release them with the "cloth texture" layers Sam created in Paint.NET. I finally somewhat figured out how to re-create it based off his re-creation of his patch last night so I'll holla here when it's done. afro

Post by sa_admin on Wed 20 Jul 2011 - 13:26

We'll be updating the Aviator Patches.

Proposal :
I would like to make the patches more focused on the pilot's attached unit. This means that Alpha Wing pilots would have all the same background, header text and then i would add the customization, a symbol for everyone to distiguish, but not a major detail cause i really want to put the emphasis on the TEAM.

Like ORION's patches style, i will make a black ring with the header (ex : Silver Arrows - Alpha Wing), then there will be the middle with the image, SA logo and personnal detail). Finally there will be the bottom text with the callsign and you origin (ex: SA_ARROW - Liberty). Now i got two choices : put the Sirius/Coalition/Inner Core origin or the current country of the person. Personnaly i'd prefer the RP origin like i'm a Liberty Citizen, FUD's a Brtonian and Seqan is an IC Alien from Neran.

I thought that there could be a default Sirius house/coalition/IC grouping based on the real countries of our clan:
Liberty : North America (US and Canada)
Bretonia : Pretty much all the former British colonies such as Autralia, South Africa, etc and of course the Great Britain
Rheinland : Current EU countries (except the spanish speaking countries)
Hispania : Portugal, Spain and Central/South America.
Coalition : Russian and all the countries that end by "stan" Razz
IC for those who got a RP or come from outside earth :afraid:

Such a thing would make:
Liberty : ARROW, TWC, LOYAL, RASANN
Bretonia : FUD, REIBENS, (former mate INFLKT)
Rheinland : FRASIE, FAABY, FORLON, ENDEAVOUR, SNAKE
Hispania : no one atm (former mate TANGO)
Coalition : (former mate RUSSIA)
Neran : SEQAN
What do you think ?
