Geocaching - use different icons since v 2.11.0
« on: April 30, 2013, 17:09:33 »
Follwing http://https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/geocaching_t5_use_different_icons great new addition I tried to creat my own set of icons.
During this process I stumbled over the following problems.
1) T-Icons are placed on the upper left of the main icon, shouldn't it be right following the D/T schema.
2) Locus seems to have problems with transparency and I don't see the D-Icons, probably because they are too shown on the upper left (see the picture with the climber on it and the D-picture in its background).

hi,
  sorry I forget to answer on GetSatisfaction

check this my test pack

to your questions
1) what is D/T schema? Currently icons are placed as you wrote, into top left corner
2) as I checked your icons, there is incorrect transparency in icons. All terrain/difficulty icons have some white, sometimes transparent, weird area instead of transparency ...

Thanks for the quick reply. The icons are helping, You used a transparent icon the size of the cache and placed the symbols into the corners. I'll follow that rule. Next day I'll create something and put it here.
1) Normally if I want to shorten Difficulty and Terrain, I write f.i. instead of difficulty=3 terrain=4  -> 3/4 so D/T schema.
  "Currently icons are placed as you wrote, into top left corner". After looking at Your sample I understood the process. My guess was that You placed the icons at different corners but now its clear.
2) Did at the end some batch conversion with Irfan-View, guess I shouldn't make it that easy. Already created some better ones.

sure, you're welcome

I understand what you mean by D/T, I just wasn't sure if this mean that D is always on left, T always on right etc ...

Anyway I was thinking about system that should be used here. It's quite complicated. What you expected is quite simple and make sense, on other side it force you to use position for icons I choose for you. This solution allow to create whole set exactly as you need.

Locus use one set of icons and if you create icons (overlays) in same size, they'll be placed exactly as you need. I think this current solution gives you big freedom and that's what I wanted :)
