    Arrow Game Mode Icons

    I was just looking at the Japanese prefecture flags, trying to identify where all of your weapon logos came from (pretty cool stuff), and I saw some Japanese municipal flags which I copied that might look good as icons for race modes. I didn't know if you had any yet, so please tell me if you do, but in the case that you don't, then I'll post them!

    We don't have any race mode symbols yet. I am also not 100% certain if we need 'em but I guess they could be implemented so feel free to post your ideas

    You probably wouldn't use 'em a lot, maybe just on the loading screens and for quick event identification for online events. Anyway, here's what I was thinking, I'm just going to post the flags directly, no editing.

    Single Race: single_race_icon.png Endurance: endurance_icon3.JPG Street Race (Sao Paulo): street_race_icon.JPG Time Trial: time_trial_icon.JPG Speed Lap: speed_lap_icon.png Zombie: zombie_icon.png Zone (or whatever we end up calling it): velocity_challenge_icon.png Platformer: platformer_icon.JPG

    Of course, these are just the copied flags, the colors and angles and stuff can always be changed around. Some of them aren't very high resolution, either, but I picked the ones I thought represent the modes best. Anyway, just tell me your opinion, some of them aren't my favorite (single race), but others fit pretty well (zone, street race, time trial), so they can always be changed.

    I really enjoy your idea. Just add another one for 'Head on Head' Maybe Theo can also reply to this, since he created the weapon logos. Actually it would be pretty cool to keep the same idea [the jap. symbols] like a concept throughout the game modes & weapon icons

    Yeah, I really like the Japanese flag designs, and I think they go well with the game. It helps that you guys make 'em look good, too. I totally forgot Head on Head, I'll get one for it soon!

    Edit: I think this one's decent for Head on Head: head_on_head_icon.jpg

    I like that one because the top of it looks like two forces colliding, which is essentially what the mode is. Theo could make it a little bolder so it would show up better and not be so "thin," but I like the idea of it.

    Hmm, nice thoughts vincoof. I'll get a rotated version up in a minute!

    Edit: Here it is!

    I'll admit, I do like it better, it makes a little more sense now.

    Actually I was thinking of a "mirror" (flip from left to right) which would be enough to read the S and which would keep the "vertical" feel (if it was intended). The one you just posted is nice, though :)

    Oh, you mean like this: single_race_icon_mirror.png

    I see now, I think I do like this upright version more, but both look good!

    That’s exactly what I was thinking of. Feel free to keep whichever you prefer
