Thumbnails for Simutrans website
« on: April 20, 2013, 01:20:39 AM »
I thought that I should have a go at producing a new thumbnail to represent Pak128.Britain on the official website. I have produced a number of variants on a theme such that, if any of these are considered suitable, there is a good selection between them. The current thumbnail shows buildings but not much in the way of stops/vehicles/ways, so I thought that I should produce something that rectified that somewhat and made the pakset look a little more exciting. Here is what I have produced:

I most like number 6 as it shows a train, boat, bridge and station. The last one would be good as well if you added some form of road transport to give life to the road. What I would say is that I think the city buildings should be carefully chosen. The red brick building with wide windows is one I've never liked as it doesn't fit others from the time period.

I second both points. Perhaps the boat could do being less hidden by the bridges, too.

That was my favourite, too. Thank you for the feedback.

Hmm, on the subject of the official website, I also notice that it refers to an out of date version of Pak128.Britain, being 1.13, rather than 1.14.

I'm in agreement. Who do we need to get to do these changes?
