I have been playing around to come up with a nice blue theme for Allied Nation. (The blue theme for research is exclusively to Allied Nation since Soviets Union can't acquire this anyway, goes the same for Red Theme being exclusive to Soviet Union.)

I'm still thinking about what to make a nice research background cameo, would like to see what people here think.

Some examples of cameos that I worked.

I think you need to add a background for the text or shade. Difficult to read the inscriptions....

Somewhat like that. Smile

Now I think maybe I should just add Research Tree, so that players can also unlock new units via researching.

Also reworked on Sonic Amp Cameo, feedback?

No offense to DaRTzo, but I second this.

I will see what I can do, maybe add gloss to make it look better. Why didn't I think of gloss at first place?  #Tongue

Maybe you forgot about it and thought you were making a TS Mod?

Alright, another example!



Edited it, new background, made the border dark for the text to be visible and added glass lines around it.

It is 64 x 48 Cameo, I guess I will have to create a new Sidebar as well too so that these cameos will fit in.

Feedback?

FYI, I never worked on TS Mod, except for voxels. And no, it is just that I don't know alot about cameos. I just start learning it 2 days ago, real learning.

jokes aside that glass looks a bit too low quality too me.

If you stick to the original 60x48 you can just grab the new glass template off of tomson's post or in my Cameo Template Pack.

I took a try on making cameo using your glass template. It looks wonderful.

Thanks, Cyrillic text is something I'm also looking for as well too. I always wanted to give each countries individual text word according to their country language. Similar to D-Day.

The cameo that you edited for me is great as well too!

Redid the cameo using Toms' gloss and making final touch-ups.

Here is example of Focus Sonic Cameo


Another example using Soviet Molotov Cocktail upgrade for Commissar.


As you can see that I added Atom-shaped on top-left corner, represents RESEARCH symbol so that the player say, "Oh that is research!" Since that I added research symbol, it would be best if I don't add research to text bar since it takes up space. Players will be able to know that it is research automatically by looking on the symbol.

Feedback?

Wow. I like them... My cameos are crap atm. I'm sure they'll get better.(That is, my cameos not yours. Yours are already great.) Also, just out of curiosity, where do you get your source images?

Google search engine are great place to get images from. Any search engines will do it. Smile

The only thing that I made is the background color that's all.
