This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was getting mighty tired that I had to use a sword or replace the ingame command UI completley everytime i made a modern/scifi map. So made these.

I won't pretend they were hard to make, they werent. But they're useful, and I hope they get approved alone on that merit.

  2. I like this one. What do you think about an order icon, same shape like this one,
    but pointing to the ground, as the arrows after a walk/attack order in-game ?

    It looks like the walk order model :) I'd rather use it as a Walk button instead of HoldPosition.
     
  4. Hm, for me it looks too static to present itself as a walking order sign.
    Haha, great example for how different people see art.

    Well, it is supposed to represent a unit guarding a position without relying on "shield" symbolism, as that would not fit.

    Anyway, Ardenian, made the icon you suggested.

    I approve!!! This type of stuff is very needed. I went looking for a normal steel shield today in models and nothing was there. Sometimes I think we need more simple resources because they can be super useful. This whole set fills a need. It's great!

    i think these could be approved for usefulness, but if you add that subtle white highlight that exists in all the blizzard command icons to all of your custom ones it'd blend in a ton more in-game and compel me to approve even moreso.

    I already have, although it might be less visible in this one than the rest of the icons I uploaded.

    i meant on the actual shapes, not the background D:

    see: circled highlight area
    [​IMG]

    and here's what your icon should look like (except better, because i spent a couple seconds using a soft brush to make that example):

    I'll get around to it next week. I'm rather overburdened in real life right now.
