    With the Gods & Kings Expansion Pack comes the need for a new emoticon.

    We have emoticons / icons for the other Civ releases:
    Civ 1 [civ1]
    Civ 2[civ2]
    Civ 3[civ3]
    Play The World [ptw]
    Conquests[c3c]
    Civ 3 Mac. [civ3mac]
    Civ 4 [civ4]
    Warlords [c4w]
    Beyond the Sword :bts:
    Test Of Time [tot]
    Civ5 [civ5]
    (no Call to Power, or Alpha Centuri though.)

    Anyway: Based on the screenshots and artwork for Civ 5 Gods & Kings released, I would invite people to create a small icon for CFC to use for the anticipated expansion.

    Rules:
    Must be a .GIF file.
    Must be no more than 28 x 12 pixels.

    Entries should be posted in this thread, and we'll then have a vote for the best. The best entry will be adopted as the post icon for Civ 5 God & Kings, and used at least until the official launch of Civ 5 Gods & Kings.

    The icon by Mercade (+ modification by General Olaf) are too big, they need 2 pixels less in the height :).

    Any reason for picking this? I mean, some that already exist are wider or taller than that...

    Looks weird if the G+K icon is super sharp while all the other icons are not ;)

    I like the gold. I was considering doing something like this, but I wanted to keep the font (which I didn't have) and shrinking the letters in the current logo didn't have good quality.

    There's an argument that all silver is more accurate, but it's a good connection to the original logo with the gold V in the middle.

    Nice work so far, keep the suggestions coming. :)

    The Content Staff decided to end the submissions and start a review on March 15th.

    I adapted Dark Jedi's with a lighter yellow (roughly the same as the vanilla icon).

    Oops, it's not mentioned here: The poll with the icons is up, see the thread here.

    And since this thread doesn't have a real purpose anymore and the other one can be used for the same discussion: -> Moderator Action: Thread closed.
