We want YOU to vandalize Planet MoFo.

Post by Spazzy McGee » Sun Jan 04, 2009 6:04 pm

Well, we at Planet MoFo are always looking for ways to improve your playing experience, physically and aesthetically - so we're asking you, the players, to design a bit of graffiti for us to spray on our walls!

Think you've got what it takes to deface our hallowed walls? All you have to do is either post your design here, as a transparent PNG so we can overlay it onto our brick texture. Or if you're feeling really up to the challenge, you can work directly on the bricks yourself - it's up to you.

You should try to keep your design to a few bold, solid colors, so it looks as though it could be spray painted. We want things that are fairly generic, but nice to look at. Witty images are especially good. - so don't just write your name in a graffiti-like font.

Your image may bleed above or below the bricks, but not to the left or right - this is because the bricks need to merge seamlessly with the texture directly left or right of them.

Here's an example to get you started.

We made the design we wanted to add first, on a transparent PNG:
You must keep the background transparent, and you must stay below 512 x 256 size. We recommend that you make your design fit pretty much centrally in the bricks.
Image

Then we overlayed it onto the brick texture, to make the final image...
(Which we can do for you, if you just make the design)
Image

Alternatively, you can work directly onto the image, if you want....
Image

Good luck! We'll select the best few of the ones receive, and you'll see them appear on a mofo server near you!

You can post your submissions here, or if you would prefer, you can PM them directly to me or optic delusion.

By posting images here, you agree for it to be used by Planet MoFo for any purposes they wish, within the terms any license you wish to release it under. The licenses you may release under are any of those allowed by the images.bzflag.org host service.

Here's one I threw together quick.

I used the font here: http://www.fontspace.com/11-d/subway-graph

That works well, Blast.

I've overlayed it onto the bricks - expect to see it somewhere on MoFo soon!

Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

No, it's not - the edge needs to be seamless with the texture next to it. If you want, give me a copy of it on transparent PNG, and I can overlay it properly onto the bricks.

Piet
Your image looks and works really nice with what we want to do.
Your image is copyrighted, this is a big problem. We can not use copyrighted images.
Your image may be under fair use. If it is, maybe we can still use it.
We will make our decision soon.

What we really want is for players, to make new artwork, not just copy and paste.
We want original art that looks very nice like R3LAX's image, or have a witty message.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

FAIL.

Ok, people seem to be missing this specific point:

So I am going to emphasize it here...
