Star Control Sigs
« on: May 26, 2006, 09:46:23 pm »

Hello everyone,

I made some signatures based on The Ur-Quan Masters.  I was inspired to make these when I heard that Toys For Bob (TFB) is talking with Activision to make another Star Control game.

The link is below:
http://forum.userbars.com/viewtopic.php?t=14911&highlight=star+control

I plan on making more sigs with different pics.  If anyone has any ideas, don't be afraid to speak out.

Enjoy Cheesy

Cool. I don't really use sig banners, but these look nice all the same.

And of course, anything that will help us pimp our game is a plus in my book.  Wink

Très cool. I usually dislike graphical sig banners, but these look good, are instantly recognisable and, most importantly, are small enough to fit into a sig block.

Now all I have to do is find a discussion group where using one of these is possible (and socially acceptable) but not completely redundant (like here). Wink

Nice to see that people like it Cheesy

Is it possible to create the sig banner as a link to the UQM project
page? It would be redundant here, but on other forums it
would help people find their way to UQM.

Absolutely!

This is what you need to add to your signature to add the url:
Code:
[url=http://sc2.sf.net][img]http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i108/batman4050/scsho.png[/img][/url]

Just get the http path of the image file, and put it within the tags, and you can change the image.

I hope this helps Cheesy

I made the new sig with the precursor ship:



I went through hell finding good pics, but I managed to make something... Cheesy  I had to play the game and use my ship in a fight to get a pic. Cheesy

Now I have one more to add to the collection

I also made a spathi one:

Good idea but a bit hard to read...

Perhaps something like "Support a new Star Control!" would be a better call to arms.
