Enhanced Client Icons

After a recent PC disaster I found myself having to re-make my (rather basic) custom ui. 
This involved re-creating a number of custom icons that I use in the 'macro icons' folder simply to better define my macros. 
Anyway, having made the new icons, I thought I might share them incase anyone else likes them. The images here are .gif files, in order to use them they need to be converted to .dds files.

    I had actually noticed you went missing for a few days, I hoped everything was ok. :)

    Good luck rebuilding :)

    errm, in case anyone is wondering, I have problems telling port from starboard when the boat is turned around. To solve that, on all ships I own, cannons on the port side are dyed purple and cannons on the starboard side are dyed blue. The two icons I've made go to the macros 'say' 'fire port broadside' and 'say' fire starboard broadside'.
    If anyone wants me to try to make any similar icons for them, I'm willing to try.

    I took the time awhile ago, probably been a year or so now, to build out the rest of the boat command icons.

    All the standard speed icons are present in the default UI, but "Slow" and "One Tile" only have forward and backward.

    Here are the full icon sets for "Slow" and "One" in the default color palate:

    Slow:


    One:



    I also built out some additional icons so I could remember which boring grey/blue arrows meant which speed. (For me: standard = ship, slow = turtle, one tile = one tile)



    In game, my 3x3 control blocks look like this and I have a center piece reminder of which block does what.



    Finally, me being me, I made start, stop, and continue using (as close as possible) nautical flags 


    come about, turn port, turn starboard, fire port/starboard broadside using a UO ship


    and Doracron, Sueacron, start tracking, stop tracking, rename, go to pin, and continue from pin, with more colorful/relatable icons, so I could remember what did what. 


    Anyway, if anyone wants to use any of these, feel free.


    I also have a full set of icons for the 3 speeds using the UO ship, but those didn't turn out well and when arranged in a 3x3 control block have a disconcerting pinwheel effect.

    If anyone wants Petra's nice icons converted into DDS files let me know and I will convert them for you and host them on my github repository for you to download.

    That doesn't entirely help when you have to touch your wedding ring with your thumb to remember which way is left *blush*

    Not being able to tell left and right on an object that can rotate is more of a lack of spatial relations skill.  Especially if your guys shield changes hands also.

    If I fold a piece of paper 4 times and punch a hole at the right top corner, I have no idea where the holes will be on the other parts of the paper when unfolded.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.
