Icon wanted for Actor Condition Immunity

Post by Zukero » Sat Aug 26, 2017 10:41 pm

Hello adventurers.

I just completed the testing of a new code feature: Immunity to an actor condition.
It works kind of like the antidotes, that can clear any active food poisoning for examples, but on a longer term.

Imagine quaffing a "Potion of bulletproof stomach" that gives you five rounds of raw meat eating without risking food poisoning.
Imagine the "Rapier of the fearless" that makes you immune to "Fear" as long as you wield it.
You get the idea.

Now, in my tests, to show the active immunity, I simply overlaid the "skills" icon on top of the immunized actor condition's icon in the bottom-right corner and in your hero stats page.
It kinda works, but it's not really pretty nor has an intuitive meaning.

If any of the creative ones here could come up with a good icon overlay, that'd be awesome.
Here are the rules:
- A single PNG file with transparency.
- 32px by 32px.
- A good license (Public Domain, CC0, or CC-BY-SA for example).
- Visible enough to understand that it's a immunity, yet transparent enough to recognize the Actor Condition's icon below.
- Works well-enough on top of any icon in the following file: https://github.com/Zukero/andors-trail/ ... ions_1.png

The winner gains bragging rights, his name in the game (name + URL link) in the "Authors" section, and my gratitude.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe a red circle around with strike through like in ghostbusters as overlay?

Nope. That won't do. First, because it sends a negative message, while an immunity is most likely to the benefit of the player, and second because it would be ugly.

I came up with something today. It works, IMHO, but if someone can offer something better, I'll have no seconds thoughts about replacing mine.
Here's what it looks like:

The shape is directly derived from the logo's shape.

Perhaps make the shield a bit larger, at least to the bottom.

I first tried with a bigger shield. It was centered horizontally, and taking the whole height.
Trouble was, it covered the actor condition icon beneath it too much, and it was really hard to recognize what you were immune to.

I think that looks pretty good.

I like this too. Especially using a shield in logo shape fits perfectly.

I like the idea of the shield as the immunity symbol. I think it would look better a different color or shaded differently as it's pretty hard to distinguish that the shield is even there; at least to me.

What about a syringe on an angle from top left to bottom right? Though I like the shield as well.
