This site serves as an overview about current ship parts used to design space ships. It is created to keep track on icon creation and provide some basic information regarding this, but might also be useful for other purposes. Game relevant data might be added later, but is not a priority at this stage, since it's very likely to change.

Style of Ship Part Icons

Ship Part Icons should be as clean and simple as possible while still conveying the concept. Symbolism can be used(see shield icons), but you don't have to. Choose what works best.

icons should:

  • Be on a transparent background
  • Be recognizable at smaller sizes
  • Have a strong silhouette
  • Be provided in 64px*64px and in color

The relevant forum thread about icon creation can be found here.
