0001874: Icon overhaul
This issue is to officially track the icon replacement process for the release of 1.0.

Currently we have:
- replaced Doomseeker executable icons with much cleaner versions provided by MazterQyoun-ae and CarpeDiem,
- working on a replacement for at least some of the icons in the main window.
No tags attached.

Replacement sample of main window's icons for refresh, Wadseeker, log, server info and "create game" box: [^]

2014-07-07 19:49   
Commit with 5 new icons. "Create game" might still be replaced. [^]
2014-07-07 21:22   
Replaced the planet with the computer icon from Server Info. Try this one for Create Server/Game: [^]

I think this starts to look pretty rad.

However, icon styles are now clashing with each other. While I think that doomguys and play/record icons are okay, I really don't like how the chat and filter icons don't fit with the rest.

I guess the next step would be to replace chat and filter icons. I think that what's in the picture now is okay, so chat icon should still consist of chat clouds, and filter icon should still have a funnel, but I'd like them to be done in the same style as the new ones.

While we're at it, I'd also like to have a generic plus, minus, X and "check mark" icons done in the same style. Preferred size 32x32.

Yeah the chat and filter icons definitely need to be replaced. However, I wouldn't rule out also replacing the buddies list and the play and record icons. The latter two might be hard to do anything with though.

Took us long enough, but we took a break and all, been busy with other stuff. So here they are, try these: [^] [^] [^] [^] [^] [^]

Going to try something with friends and play/record demo now.
2014-08-04 22:22   
Here are the remaining ones: [^] [^] [^]
2014-08-05 20:47   
Wonderful, and there's no rush. I'm on a kind of a break too, anyway, doing other stuff. I'll add these icons sometime soon to see how they look.
2014-08-06 23:31   
Please use this [slightly improved] filter icon instead of the one provided above: [^]

I must admit that Doomseeker looks rather grim now, although I'm not yet sure whether that's a bad thing. I kind of like the new look.

One thing that definitely needs further adjustment is the demo record button. I've provided a second screenshot where the current icon is used for reference. I think it'd be good if record button stood out somehow from the rest. Maybe it should be grey or maybe a brighter shade of red.
2014-08-10 03:34   
I like it.

I'm not entirely sure I agree with the demo buttons needing further adjustment, but perhaps changing the play button to gray may help make the record button more obvious? A brighter shade of red would kind of break the consistency, but I suppose it wouldn't look bad.
2014-08-10 12:03   
I liked it too! Would really shine if the overall theme would match the color gradients of the icons though :D
2014-08-10 17:09   
Overall theme depends on the theme of your operating system. We won't be overriding that.
2014-08-11 01:27   
Please try this record icon: [^]

Okay, I guess I'm happy with what we have now. Unless anyone else has any suggestions I think we can take a break from this issue for now. Thanks for all the help.

2014-08-16 09:12   
I think there is one more thing that we need at the moment. While I was adding the new generic icons to the program I noticed that we're missing an icon for 'edit' operations. Could you provide such icon?
2014-08-16 11:21   
Hmm…? Could you show me where is it?
2014-08-17 08:45   
Here's an example: [^]
2014-09-21 12:10   
Sorry for taking long, try this one: [^]
2014-11-16 09:40   
I've finally gotten myself back into working on Doomseeker. Unfortunately, the edit icon is 404 now. Can you please reupload?
2015-03-22 20:12   
I guess we can close this as all icons that needed replacing were replaced. Thanks for the help.
