What about my cheetah ???

Cloth .... Aviator patches are always cloth or leather .... Nylon will burn into your skin in an accident. and it does not 'breath' ...

Can we not shelve the patch thing for first ?? It's a very personal subject for me as it represents ME and my ORIGIN inside Silver Arrows.

We already have the black border and the assignments and our units on it... The inside is what we use to Identify each other with ....

Everyone basically the same as suggested ... mmmm ...... NO ....

Remember these are AVIATOR patches...not aviation patches

Kind Regards

[quote="sa_admin"]

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:
[quote]

another question .. where do we draw the line for 'colonies' ???

If we talk about colonies, then America is a Britonia as well and Canada (which is still part of the commonwealth and under HRM Elisabeth II)

South Africa has not been a colony since 31 May 1910 and United States since 3 September, 1783

Tricky ...

I like the patches just the way they are. Aviator patches, at least for USA military, mean something PERSONAL to the pilot himself. It describes the pilot, not his squadron. The patch is the pilot's.

Leave them the way they are, let the pilot request stuff.

However, I do like the change of texture and the way the words are arranged somewhat. Maybe a bit more tweaking?

Well... Believe it or not, I'm actually home this week folks, finally! Got alot of stuff I've needed done this past weekend since I've been gone out of town on business the past few weeks.

SO!

That means I can take requests for a short time on patches ladies and gents!

Raiden? N0k0m? Let me know when you guys have ideas for your patches and of course, when you graduate N0k0m. Cool

Ryleous: glad to hear good news from you m8! About patches I might give this suggestion: Use in upper part only Silver Arrows and in bottom callsign. Many wing positions can change shortly (or unsure yet). ... probably except me and Sam in Fleet command scratch biggrin

Great! Send me stuffs Horizon! Ideas are good, but images are golden. biggrin

Yea, I hear ya Forlon, sound advice my good man. Keeping track of wing positions and the fleet roster was a pain in the ass at times, especially when trying to get people's patches straight too. Facepalm

With that said, I may redo all the active members patches as such, I'll see if I can get some post processing using the "cloth weave" texturing Sam used as well. I'll get back to you guys about this later...

Alright, check it out folks, I've already made a version of all the active and semi-active SA pilots that have logged in with in the past few weeks with this updated style patch. This is but a preview of what they will look like. Of course, everyone's personalized part of the patch will remain the same, although tweaked for legibility in certain cases, namely with text.



Yea, nay, it sucks ORION? What say ye noble Arrows? biggrin Cool

i say it's need 3D and textures. Your AutoCAD program is not good for you ! Use Paint.NET or GIMP ! (the latter makes text folling any path, including an arc like on the patches Wink )

Don't know if you've seen my prototype yet :

Right... Yea, I'll get back to you in a few years with Paint.NET or Gimp there gentlemen, cuz that's about how long it will take me to master them of what I can do with AutoCAD.(of which I'm much faster with and I can draw free hand without images if necessary)

Sorry Sam, mastering either of those will take more time than I have available and AutoCAD will do 90% of what they can anyway... As I've said before, I'll have to make do with what I know. Besides, patches are not 3D images in person aside from the stitching of course... They are very personalized icons to each pilot, having flashy 3d polished artwork is NOT the ultimate goal here IMHO. I can create freehand whatever I cannot find with clipart for each person's requests, can you do the same in Paint.NET or Gimp? In my experience, painting pixel by pixel is a bitch.

*sigh* In the meantime, if you want to take a stab at it gentlemen, by all means go for it. I'll return to my null existence if you'll excuse me...

@Orion: I agree with Riebens the black on silver doesnt look right to me but looking at what you and arrow did a change in the font type on the current patch might make it look better
