one major gripe with the nightly logo though. If it's not supposed to be the earths shadow on the moon, a 3/4 full moon looks quite different:
Did you though about if the shadow can be different for this factors: global position, time of day, season? If you go on wikipedia|Lunar Phase
you can read on the second line:
The lunar phases vary cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing relative positions of the Earth, Moon and Sun.
I also found out that the truth is that it's not a quarter moon, but a Earthshine effect, there's a image very similar in wikipedia|Earthshine
As I also told some posts ago, it's a logo, it needs to look cool not realistic. Some example:
Windows logo, it's the brightness coming from a window with 4 different color glasses. The space between them are equal and we all know that it's quite impossible, since the red light have a lower frequency then blue, making white light when getting into a different material doing red have a slightly different refraction than blue.
Turkey flag have a moon with a small circle inside that we can call a 'shadow' and it's impossible moon have such a small shadow circle inside it. The only way to happen this is looking from moon to earth, so moon shadow can make this effect on earth.
For Christians a white skin Jesus is crucified on His hands, and the reality is that probably He was crucified on His wrist, otherwise the hands will be cut and He will fall on the floor before death. And a white Jesus in middle east is nearly impossible, He probably had light brown skin like middle east people. Nobody in medieval era was going to kill the middle east people to conquer Jerusalem if they look-like Jesus.
Logos are logos, if looking for reality what about buying a train put it on a place with grass wait to get night and moon appear on a cool place, pray to not rain and take a pic? That way the reality is 100%
PS.:Don't want to look rude but we all know that the logo need to be cool. Nobody told Enzo that the horse muscle is not right or that the horse hair is wrong from reality on his logo.
Desaturating the tree might also make the logo look more nightly.
Good suggestion I'll be doing it until end of day.
I think the second experimental logo to be the best. I don't think it should be worried about confusing it with pak HD, that's distinctive enough.
I think now we can't use it anymore, the Experimental Logo version 2 now is the logo for pakHD, download version 0.4 and you'll see.
And at least someone talked about the Experimental version 3.0 and 3.1. But I still want to know which one is better.
