Races "logos"

I thought it wouldn't hurt for PA to have a little more graphics.
I had a little fun trying to find a 'logo' for each race, here they are

I'm also thinking of very simple blueprint style side view for each ship class (different for each race), about 30 designs...

Re: Races "logos"

The races had sort of logo's in the past, there were skins specific for each race with the logo in the top left center.

Pitty they are gone now yeah, so I like the idea and the logo's you pasted are looking nice too

Re: Races "logos"

Good idea. I think little touches like this can make the game a lot more attractive!

I don't like the zik one though, I'm sorry to say

Cathaar looks nice, and XBox made me smile!

Re: Races "logos"

Nice work, I really like the TER & ETD logo's, however I feel cath, zik & xan miss a bit of identity

ps: i think the old logo's still exist somewhere, afaik they're used in the r6-9 skins?

Re: Races "logos"

For the zik I still like to use the red as it is their traditional color, and I wanted to bring the idea they're relying on electronics. Suggestions are welcome to make them look better.

Re: Races "logos"

Not a huge fan of the Zik or Xan ones but I think the other 3 are very good. Of course these things are very subjective. I'd love to see more art from other people that can draw!

Oh and some ship designs would be epic.

Great to see some user-generated stuff for a change.

I also agree with Achi; ship designs would be sweet.

Re: Races "logos"

Not trying to steal any thunder, but i made these a long time ago, however still not really convinced about my own Terran design.

RaceLogos

Terran - Metal feel, but not satisfied with the overall design.
Cathaar - Grey/Silver, Look like a Insect/Bug type thing.
Xandatrii - Green, Spiky, X like in shape.
Zik - Red, and unusual (like stolen ships would be)
Etd - Pretty random logo, but notice the E and backward E, and the A shape at the bottom.

Note: I did just change some the race names like there some are in the OP, so i dont want to say I thought of those names my self :P

Re: Races "logos"

As with peoples opinions I invested some time into redoing Terran and Cathaar logos.

Terran and Cathaar

I'm liking them personally, but then it is 6am and i should go to bed.

I like them, maybe without the word "emp" above the cath logo though. Otherwise pretty impressive.

Will somebody please hire this guy to work for pa?
Somebody?

As usual awesome work MrLobster


Ps: there appears to be a small typo in the terran one unless you meant it to be 'fedredation' instead of 'federation'

Terran, Cathaar, Xandathrii, Zikonian and EITRAIDES

TBH I should stop posting them here, as I'm sort of highjacking.

Yep thats the 6am syndrome.

Re: Races "logos"

no you're not hijacking, if a designer wishes to post his own versions, that's the place to do it. There is no official logos yet, I don't know if there will be any, the more choice we give to te PAteam/community (whoever makes the decision) the better. Fubar designer can come up with something too, it's always interesting to see other styles.

I like our idea of having an evocation of one of their ships in the Ter (phoenix) and Cat (spider), I like to see the other races with the same idea.

Looking good mate
Though Personally I feel the skull should be more of a zikonian simbol, they are the pirates of the pa-universe so I think it would suit them better

Yep your right.

Changes:
1) Moved the Xan skull to Zik and added cross bones (not sure if they fit the theme yet).
2) By adding a slight textured background to the Cogs inner, the Terran earth image now looks more 3D (by far a huge improvement).
3) Added a slight glow to the Terran cog.
4) Added a glow to the back of the cathaar eye.
5) Xan now have a Winged Bat inspired image.
6) Xan Circle has a slight green textured background added (simliar to terran).
7) ETD logo made a little darker, more texture and increased color.
EDIT:
8) The jaw on the Zik skull has been made more visible.

The ETD is still in WIP, however any suggestions are welcome.

So here are the current results

New Race Logos

3) Added a slight glow to the Terran cog.
4) Added a glow to the back of the cathaar eye.
5) Xan now have a Winged Bat inspired image.
6) Xan Circle has a slight green textured background added (simliar to terran).
7) ETD logo made a little darker, more texture and increased color.
EDIT:
8) The jaw on the Zik skull has been made more visible.

The ETD is still in WIP, however any suggestions are welcome.

So here are the current results

New Race Logos
Some small changes I'd suggest:
Xan: personally I feel the circle around the X is a bit too thick, making the whole image feel a little out of balance.
Zik: The bottom part of the Z on top is barely visible, so it looks more like a 7(this could be the result of my monitors calibration)

ETD is a tough one, considering there isn't really a background story about them, their uniqueness of the race is hard to capture in a logo.
With all the other races everybody has a fairly good idea what they are and where they came from, but ETD was thrown in without any real explanation.

I'd go for some sort of combination between the logo's and or colors you allready use because ETD is basicly just all the other races thrown together in one :/


Still very nice work! All the logo's that are done or semi-done fit the race perfectly and i'm loving your choice of fonts very much

Re: Races "logos"

Yep i saw the 7 too, so I changed the font for that, and looks mighty!

Changes:
1) Terran font color change to gold.
2) Cathaar font color with added blue.
3) Xan "X" font changed to match full name font.
4) Xan circle thinkness and size reduced.
5) Zik "Z" font changed, looks a lot more pirate.
6) Zik is less red more orange, hopefully not to close to terran gold.
6) Added texture to bones to reduce the impact.
7) Zik full name font changed to the same as the new "Z" font.

The new set.

New Races

Overall i'm happy with Ter, Cat, Xan, and Zik, with only ETD remaining the odd one out.

I must say I kinda agree. I even think all the logos can do without the extra thing on top. Terran will look better without the 'weel', The Cathaar scarab is great on it's own, the Xandathrii X is only there for the same reason as the Z, because it's the first letter of the race, just leave it out, imo it'll look better


Nice work tough, really appreciate the effort

Re: Races "logos"

Perhaps a jigsaw-themed logo for the ETD?

I like what you've done, don't get me wrong, but the ETD logo isn't even half as good as the terran logo as it lacks any kind of symbolism whatsoever.

And the skull and crossbones is a bit too clichéd. Perhaps as with the Phoenix in the Terran logo you could incorporate the Pirate idea into the Zikonian one. It's also too 'busy'... as in, there are too many similarly coloured lines crossing over each other.

Ok, how's about this, for the 'shape' of logo to represent a compass (pirate, pirate map, navigation, compass), and simply have a skull supporting it? The bones are a bit much, we get they're a pirate race without needing to make it too obvious. That way you don't need to use a 'z'

Just some food for thought mate, like I said - really like what you're doing.

Re: Races "logos"

I agree with Berten, the creatures evocating ships are great in themselves, the other elements are not needed (keep the earth for terrans, the globe for cath), that's worth a try anyway. I think there should be more red in the Zik in reference to their ingame colour code.
For the ETD I would use a Broadsword or a Fireblade as central element (the fire would be the element linking them to the Terran race).

Terran and Cathaar

I'm liking them personally, but then it is 6am and i should go to bed.
http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/772/raceboard.jpg <- this xan one is better than any u posted after.

I like cath on that page too, alltho the spider theme is cool also. WHERE ARE MY SPIDERS?

your new terran logo is awesome in here http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/7895/tercatj.jpg and actually they all look quite nice. ETD font should be changed as more readable font tho.

nice work!

I think my latest set looks the best, and i'm keeping all but the ETD.

EDIT: The image board in the quote isnt my latest, zik are still having the pirate type feel. ETD are still WIP.

Re: Races "logos"

Now that you removed the pirate skull theme thing from Zik ... maybe give it to Etd (since they're sort of the oucast/scavengers of the universe with slight trading ambitions on the side anyway)?

Edit: Good work btw! - They rock

Re: Races "logos"

Ah, yes, my bad - Seems I was looking at the wrong picture.

Nevertheless, how about some trading sort of thing style for Etd? Though not completely PA related, maybe some an outline of a fat freighter or space station?

I've made a suggestion for ETD, other than that it's all top notch.
