And of course there is the ever difficult to get hold of 'Fish-cake', however this is fairly prevalent in 'apeoid' worlds being inneffective to their kind, both as a drug and food type. It is often smuggled alongside genuine fish to diguise the distinct aroma, and finally hidden inside a discarded news paper.
Scientists have yet to understand why such 'nipids' have adverse effects upon the feline mind, yet none to the 'apeoids', despite in depth research into the mind:

Just for the record the new youradhere needs 54 ads for the creation of a new set instead of 50 due to the new asteroid billboard

Well it does if you have no wish to replicate the ads seen in the tetra-screens with those seen in the Asteroid ads... :lol:

(PS haven't forgotten that I said I'd have a go at these - just RL keeps getting in the way! I still "owe" Gogz69 his trumble ad - which is almost finished, but isn't quite right - I'm turning into a bit of a perfectionist now my skills with GIMP are improving)

Hi you all

Lots of great ads since I docked here last.

And new submitters too - welcome.

Good to see the captain joining our ranks :D

Sorry about being a bit slow and not too responsive to mails and PMs - RL - you know. Set G will be released when RL gives me a break.

Sweet to see you busy with set F.

Hope to see you soon again.

I think that all contributors must start taken very seriously on account that the requirements for a new set from now on may not be just 50 ads but:
54 ads
One 1x2 billboard ad for the constore (2 or 4 frames)
One 1x1 billboard ad for the same station (2 or 4 frames)
A set of glow ads
A roof billboard (whatever frames) and
One adring

As long as you can provide me or the Doc with the necessary artwork we can create new constore types.
If this is not possible at least you can donate a 1x2 billboard ad for the constore (2 or 4 frames) plus a 1x1 billboard ad for the same station (2 or 4 frames) so we can have a deferent variation of an existing one (like the star in set_F).
Otherwise the new sets are going to have a replica of an existing constore from the previous sets.
Just mentioned it for the record becouse all the artwork in the six first sets are made by only 3 persons Griff, Pangloss and Daddyhoggy with the exception of the happy frog ad posted by disembodied. Well we cannot continue like this. If you want more variation to the constores all of you that post ads here must at least try. I know that the quality requirements for constore artwork is much higher from the common ads (especially an invalid roof billboard can ruin the entire station) but at least try it. You can not expect from only 3 people to continue this task in the post set_F sets without your contribution
You can post the artwork in this tread or in the "replacemet constores.... " thread

Of course Ark wants to thank everybody for the splendid contributions everybody is currently making to YAH and I'd like to point out that the task for the new Constores is not too onerous!

I will try and distill the essence of the "Constore" thread out here:

An example four frame (1x2 which is actually 4 256x128 ads stuck on top of each other) ad for the new constores would be:

Image

Top frame is frame 1 bottom frame is frame 4 (which Griff told us AFTER some of the original ads were created!)

A two frame 1x1 (256x256) ad would be:

Image

I'm not quite sure how the glow ads are made to glow (that magical act was performed behind the scenes by Griff) but the template - for those who haven't discovered it in the Replacing the Constores... thread is here (and each box is the actual size of each ad so they're SMALL - so logos not words would be ideal).
Griff wrote:wow, you guys are on a roll! Very cool stuff!
here's the template for all the tiny billboards dotted around the hull
Image
the two grey bits in the image are used to texture some of the structures the ads are stuck onto so don't paint any ads over those or they will look weird!
i.e. Image

Think of this as an opportunity - this is one for everybody who thought "if only we could have animated adverts..." well this is your chance!

Adrings need to be 1024x64 in their final image and one thing to keep in mind - which I forgot :( is that the ring rotates the opposite direction to the station spin, so the adrings can't easily be "read".

Personnally I think the roof billboards are the hardest thing to do (because I lack the skill to do them justice myself) and I suggest you visit the Constore thread if you haven't yet done so to see what I mean

http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t= ... &start=240

Also, each animated ad or billboard also requires a single representative image for those who do not have shader capable gfx cards (or simply do not have shaders turned on).

The Constores also have branded ships (sidewinders) to defend them if attacked so if you think of a new Constore brand (i.e. my recent suggestion for "ood\es") then you'll need to think about a ship skin too (or ask somebody else to think of one for you) - Pangloss kicked us off and based the texture on that from the Hoopy Casino oxp so not that onerous a task!

Image

I'm sure Ark will be happy to keep us briefed on progress of each new store as it comes on line (i.e. number of ads to go and if it still requires multiframe animated boards or roof boards etc).

Hope this has helped!
