    I need images for making FFs.

    Those uploaded to the SVN have no use at all for this, please upload big images (800x800 at least, the head should be big to work with it) with quality.

    From all these images I can only use 2.
    Please, provide me better images because I will not do a FF with that. The quality would be too low; I will not be making FFs with poor quality. Hope you understand my requirements, it's a matter of quality and I would want to make this great; not in any way.

    A useful picture should fulfil some requirements:

    - the bigger the better (not smaller then 800x800 pixel). But be aware the main points are the proportions. A huge image with a really small head has no use for this.
    - coloured
    - frontal or sidewise illustration
    - only little pixel mistakes / good quality


    Currently I have, these Good images: Use these as example.

    Bad images but I could do something with them

    I will see what I can do. :thumbsup:

    @team and community:
    Could any body help to find better images ?

    @Isbaelxxx:
    It is probably best, if you simply delete all images in
    ...\transfer\Founding_Fathers\Images
    which are not useful or have already been used. :thumbsup:

    Edit:
    I have uploaded a few more images to ...\transfer\Founding_Fathers\Images.

    But they are not as good as you requested. :(
    (Simply take a look and if they are useless, delete them right away.)

    ---------

    Maybe somebody else from team or community can find some high quality images. :dunno:

    How about Baron von Steuben:
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0b/Baron_von_Steuben_by_Ralph_Earl.jpeg
    The image is not excellent but good. He could be a good FF to give a discount to research in the Military category.

    Here are some others for Miguel Hidalgo de Costilla

    Much better than the ones I had found. :thumbsup:

    Never heard of them. :dunno:
    What Bonus should they get, if you want them as FFs ?

    Well, to tell you the truth I actually don't personally want any new FFs and think we have quite enough already. I was just responding to the request for more FF pics, these were some of the ones mentioned on Wikipedia as national founders of the Americas http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_founders.

    I would like to implement those on the list here.
    (Also for balancing reasons.)

    Let us forget the others then. :thumbsup:

    Ok, I agree. I searched for some more from that list:

    Ferdinand Magellan

    That's all I was able to find and they are not all great or meet the requested criteria, I think for most others we'll have to accept there are likely not going to be any high quality large color images available. (I don't feel strongly either way whether we really need to add more FFs than these.)

    Thank you for all your work! I will hopefully have enough time this weekend to do most if not all the suggested FF.

    Also, about the list Ray wants to implement I will see what can be done. If there are no other images and it's really necessary to make them I will do it without problems. Is just that I prefer to create the bigger number of FF possible with the best quality, so I'm open to exceptions.
    Anyway that's your decision... I can do anything if you ask me. But the results may not be so good than the rest.

    That would really be fantastic. :bowdown:

    Well of course, quality is an important aspect.
    But I would rather have some acceptable FF images than no FF images. :)

    And I also believe that even your "not as good as the rest" FF images would still be great. :thumbsup:

    Hi guys,

    pretty long that nothing has happened here. :(

    I would really like to continue work on the Founding Fathers.
    (It is important for our overall balancing ...)

    Problem is, that we will need to find Graphical Modders to help us with creation of the DDS (Founding Father Graphics). :dunno:

    Edit:

    Here is the Overview of the Founding Father Graphics we still need. :)

    Where is Isabel?
    Totally disappeared, or just having a break from modding?
