Myself, I'd love to see a comic rim shot.
Like a yellow head w/ a drum? Hmmm.
...I think I see how to work a bow, if my CivII game will let me...
Having a "million" may be fun, but having too many makes choosing more difficult. I would doubt TF will choose all you have to offer. I have no idea how he might choose new smilies or even how many he would consider adding, but your goal should be to make it easy for him to choose some. My suggestion would be for you to have 2-3 categories and select what you think are the top 10-15 for each that would be the best additions to CFC. Any new smilies would be a success!
I've only offered 25, counting the two requests...
Great. I just saw all those many many up thread.
If anyone is interested, I have a few tens of smileys from the black market, available at a really good price.
I wonder what a smilie of an evil emoticon-fencing Greek would look like? [blinks innocently]
-Smilie-making is a kind of cartooning; the challenge is to draw something that looks like something w/ very few pixels. Animating is not particularly the hard part...
Speaking of which -
<-Both too big and too small, but that's a smilie.
I was going to actually post links to the totlwar.org image files, but I like your artstyle. There are some smiley suggestion threads somewhere in Site Feedback which might help
Well bless you.
-I've not had luck finding any of those threads yet...
How about that Ming smiley?
Which one? The full nine heads hydra version is too vulgar for CFC...
This appears to be the latest one, from six years ago.
But, really, here is the Smiley Suggestion Thread Deluxe edition. Take your time.
...Five pages along, and a lot of little Xs and talk of hypothetical trolling. I did think the mongoloid wookie dance had a weird/creepy charm, so I reduced it to a reasonable size. He didn't need a torso.
Moderator Action: Let's stay away from the problematic inferences from words like "mongoloid". Even in a benign context they can be seen as offensive. leif
Okay, so make that 262 Civ II smilies.
I think this is about as small as at-all legible will do
And the Alpha Centauri Victory screen ->
...Oz, you meant Ming the Merciless dancing w/ hammer, didn't you?
That was seven years ago, and I didn't think of it...
Shootin' at the walls of heartache
I am the warrior!
Well, this should do it. 166 smilies -few not cut out of a screenshot one. pixel. at. a. time.- and I'm out of Civ 6 art left over from around release.
The attached .zip is the same w/ the 24 additions. @Thunderfall
I suppose I ought to do at least a cursory IV set -all the good even # Civs, at least, ought to be covered- but I don't know where my disk got to, and I doubt anyone will post useful screenshots at me...
...And okay, here's Olaf w/ the shadow corrected and the original layout, transparent background.
-I had it all along, but wanted to encourage less hogging of pagetop space...
-I've come down with a case of One More Turn lately playing II, related to smilie research.
And I realized I left out Alpine Troops ---
