I mentioned this earlier, but I’m working with Pasquale (aka Darkmotion) on a redesign of the site.
The goal isn’t to go too “out there”, but I do want to go back the pixelated style of yesteryear…err decade!
The clouds will be animated. I also got permission from the creator of the Dark Project icons to use them on the new design, so you’ll likely see a lot of the old icons coming back as well.
The forums will get a similar treatment as well. So expect to see a lot more pixelated icons here as well.
Early thoughts? Concerns?
Love it, u and Pasquale nailed it … its got that retro feel but at the same time really slick. Like getting a new Super Nintendo…
That is exactly the feel we were going for! Now, all we need is some 8-bit video game background music. Which may not be a bad idea actually!
The changes are slowly starting to go live! I am updating the fonts on the tutorial pages with a handful of glitches that I will slowly address momentarily.
The next frontier here will be updating the look of the forums. I am likely going to be tweaking this official theme, which you can preview by clicking here!
It looks great
I hope you have a pixelated sun (and moon for the dark theme)
Yep, the forum needs it! just a pixelated bkg blue would be a huge difference.
Regarding the pixelated sun and moon, that is a great idea!
I’m slowly making changes to the design! Here is what a callout section looks like
