I quite like the Shulth pic, and vote for the second Coyote pic.. it definitely deals with that unintended resemblance to Jack Sparrow.

What Cody says, the second Coyote is better. It's got character. Great job on Shulth too, a very cold and sinister looking specimen.

Here's test version 0.4 for those interested: https://app.box.com/s/o0crp5g6vivhk0nz2htptkt30um8goey.

YAH compatibility takes a bit more time and on top of that RL is catching up with me again. YAH needs a compatibility fix first and then I'll need to make this one to work with it. It will probably take a few days.

Way cool and glad you liked version 2 Coyote, I'll give this a spin after I deal with my RL issues.

But doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of a wanted poster?
You could just use a '?'.
I'm sure in such a high tech background setting as this there would be a pic of him somewhere pick up by some servalance camera.

But that's the best pic they've got of him. It's a hat, glasses and a beard. It's like the mask of Zorro :).

I was referring to the blacked out face above, can't even see the glasses.
I can truly see not getting a good pic of him, but there is a pretty detailed base discription so they know that much.
They don't know his eye color, how many teeth he has nor his true name, but they have everything else.

Surely if there is no photo, then they would use an artists impression, from descriptions of witnesses.
However, in Coyote's case, never photographed and only described by those who have crossed his path (i.e. run away from him and lived), the descriptions would likely be wildly inaccurate. They would be more the exaggerated imaginings of a terrified mind than a forensic examination.

And I can't see this.. In a time of tech on the calibre of the Oolite universe, you'd never really know if there was a surveillance camera around somewhere. Heck, that's already the case today. Somebody would have gotten a pic of him.

No doubt HIMSN have a file on him - a fat file - but he's quite pally with Navy, and has been of use to them.

Now the OXP also works with Your Ad Here OXP, so I've upped the version to 1.0 and added it the the expansion manager.

* 22 cool Wanted Posters of fugitive criminals by BlackWolf.
* Posters are mixed in to Station Ads OXP, Market Observer OXP and/or Your Ad Here OXP depending on which OXPs are installed. To work correctly, the latest versions of the OXPs must be used.

Please report any weirdness and it will be fixed.

Is there an ad for Sirioos Black in there somewhere? Feels appropriate somehow...
