Hi guys,

Can we have a .png (or svg) as a simutrans icon in the package to be able to build a launcher for Linux users ?

Thanks in advance,

Polytan

Indeed you can, .svg file.
Use Firefox? Interested in IPv6? Try SixOrNot the IPv6 status indicator for Firefox.
Why not try playing Simutrans online? See the Game Servers board for details.

Thanks.

Do you think it can be put at an official place, or in the package of simutrans itself ?

Because if we want to automatised the process of creating a launcher for this program, it is nicer with an icon, and useful not to change the place of it all the time ;)

What sized images are necessary for creation of the icon? It'd be a good idea to have some official art for the creation of icons (and including these with the source would be even better). I suggest talking to Stormoog about that though, as he developed the icon.

Or if you have a good way to incorporate it into Unix, it can go into the official distribution ...

It is common to put the icon of a program with the program itself actually.

The svg image attached above is not very appropriate as a desktop icon -- but isn't there an icon somewhere in the program? IIRC, there is a square 'quarter circle' icon displayed when you start Simutrans.
