    Could we get the HL tool textures as forum emoticons, to compliment our Hammer tool bar emoticons?

    I think this would be useful for our mapping discussion area...

    They'd be too small to read. Unless you wanted them full scale for non-inline use.

    They wouldnt be used much, but would be handy for when they were.

    What you'd get is something like:

    22px [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Same size as the hammer toolbar icons. Impossible to read.

    32px [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Somewhat-ish readable text. Still slightly smaller than the hammer tool buttons.

    If you need 64px versions they are on the VDC, you can just embed those images when you'd need it.
    Now, with those images in mind there. Continue the discussion, need or not?

    the 22 are at least recognizable. So if you want to tell some use playerclip and they see it they should be able to find it in hammer easily enough.

    I can read the 32's fine.

    Maybe he does know, but he's saying it in a way so that the people who don't still understand.


    So who is that guy anyway?

    Oh btw, support.

    I somehow [​IMG]ped this thread before, like it's [​IMG] or something, but this reminds me of a thread I was gonna make (that's a [​IMG])

    Actually it's not the Fonz, per se.

    For real though I would use these tool textures and also The Fonz.

    I would definitely use The Fonz.

    Notably, I avoid use of graphic emoticons.

    Wow, I missed that post. I think we posted at the same time.

    I kinda just saw the thumb and was like, "Oh, the Fonz. Duh." and never looked closer.

    This is fun. Things are boring when there are [​IMG]ings.

    Also, I should totally be a poet.

    Next, you should ask him who's face was on the old aaatrigger texture, though i always thought it was gabe himself.

    I gave pepper some 50x50 png's this morning, but now that you mention it, 32 should suffice. They are pretty legible.

    I guess on one hand we could always link from the VDC, i didn't consider that, i usually just google some and only find shitty overly compressed versions so i thought it might be handy just to have them readily avialable, since we already have the hammer tool bar which, itself, doesn't get used all that often.

    I propose a new material pack where we use community member's faces for different entities.
