    Propaganda Poster for next ACDG

    I created something to be used. Here is a sample of it. Do you think somethink like this would help in general recruiting for the next ACDG? We could put it on ACDG pages on Apolyton (which are frequently updated ). What do you think? (sorry for starting a new thread and introducing even more mayhem in this forum, but I couldn`t decide in which thread to post it. ).

    Nice work.
    Try one with the faction leader profiles, that may look good too.
    I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

    I think the second pic you posted will do better with the leader heads. Just my two cents...
    Feeling so because the four remarks are inherent for the leader's character of each faction.

    He who knows himself is enlightened.

    Yes, if I only had source of larger leader heads. Those provided with the game are too small. Who is the one who offered help to me in the poll ?

    I voted "I will help him too".
    Which can also be taken as a vote for yes.

    Are these any good? Or do you want even larger? (They are the firaxis ones, resized 100% by Microsoft Photo Editor - they can be resized to any size)

    They're too 'skinny'. Try placing them on normal broad size, and if there is place left under them perhaps a small(er) pic of the base screen under them...

    A) they will be really small B) they will be skinny

    I might try the "unskinny " version later.

    How about superimposing the leaders heads on the base backgrounds



    (How the heck do you get the image to display within the post and not just be an upload link?)

    I don`t know why, but superimposed leader heads look a bit silly to me (they ruin the background). However you gave me a great idea.

    About your attachment, I dont know why we do not see it, but it claims that it`s size is 28*30 pixels.

    It's using the embossing feature - like this (but it also embosses the background, so Dee is a little "flaky"

    I think it's neat how the 4 tenets of the game (Explore, Discover, Build, Conquer) are pretty much captured by the philosophies of the 4 factions we've chosen

    I must admit I like the "4 factions ... 4 Ideaologies ... etc" style the most. Often the first idea turns out to be the best. I wonder if it'd be too fussy to get the "explore", "build" etc inserted into that version?

    Googlie, please stop moving and deleting posts here - it is confusing me . It woudln`t much of a fuss (2 minute work), but I just want to finish an idea I have. You will hopefully see results within an hour.
