PostSubject: WE NEED A NEW BANNER!   Thu Aug 07, 2014 8:48 pm

Since we've changed our we address from halcyonminecraft.no-ip.org to halcyonminecraft.net, it's time we do a bit of spring cleaning and revamp things.  

I would like to ask that our active players come up with new banner ideas, incorperating our web address, our server name, and any images or logos you'd like to see.  Post your ideas in this thread.  I will pick two or three and put up a new thread so we can vote on whose ideas we like the best.

Can't wait to see what you guys come up with. Very Happy

I'd do an entry, but I just don't have the time.

I like the idea of group voting, also on the idea of banners, what if we get a selfie of the staff? Like everyone on the staff gets on at X time one day, poses at spawn, and we get a selfie of the entire staff and use that as the image for the server IP banner thing that we have.

Getting everyone online together is going to be tough. It would probably be easier to set up a "green screen" wall of blocks and take screen shots of individual players, then edit them all together.

Yea, I agree with Miz. White background is easier to edit around.

Yeah thats what I thought evil meant, where we're all edited together afterwards
Well thats the way I'd interpret it cause thats what I'd personally do with that idea :I

I did some banners >_>
and forgot to upload them to here, derp derp

So here's a few
The text is bad, BUT i saved every photoshop file so i can change that at any time if anyone likes them OR I can send the file to someone else who would like to edit them (IF theres any takers :])

As an advance warning I went through about 30 pages of warps to find our mod/admin homes and theres a few I still can't find and like a few others I haven't made yet. I want a few of our players builds too.

Anyway I need feedback before I continue with them cause you know don't want to spend hours on something and then no one likes it :3
soooo feedback, AND if anyone does not want their home/build on these pics, please say and i'll delete it or not screenshot

Also 18C you done a really good job Smile Smile  bounce !!















Some of the edges are really bad >_> and require more work, but yeah feedback first
also my personal faves have got to be the last two Smile

I'm also working on a different styled banner but that one does require more time, these will do for now

enjoy ^-^

I think, while making banners are fun, we're all giving different types of images without discussing essense.

In a banner, we want a single image to say something. What do we want it to say?

In the post 2 above, in the images I've made, In order, it speaks and says

#1) Adventurous
#2) Detailed
#3) Cozy
#4) Friends
#5) Funny
#6) Nice

When I look at those images, that's what I see. Question is, what one message do we want to say in a banner? What most fits what we want to say as a server, first, and as a community second.

For me, I vote for the Friend-aspect. Sure, halcyon has blocks, but so does every other server. Sure, halcyon has people, but so does every other server... but not our people... and I think that's what makes us different and better than other servers.

What essence are we trying to convey?

OR, are we just making nice pictures?

Yeah when I uploaded that Evil I had a feeling you'd tell me to change it to the new ship XD so I shall deco do one of those for you, I think that will look gorgeous in the night with a slight sunset thing going on and a couple of stars.

Annnnd I'll try get on Skype more aha, sometimes I'm invisible so just drop me a message and i'll get back to you Smile

To what you're saying 18, the main thing that has to be on the banner is the IP address imo, cause thats the whole reason we are making a new banner right? replacing the old banner with the no-ip IP
And on the country - builds mean: A community, just look at GB City and how many people have taken part in that, shows we're a friendship server like you're saying

What about this kind of thing for the banner?
Was bored and decided to try this with the halcyon IP
Done with photoshop, and if you guys like it or want to suggest anything to add to it can be easily done - colour/background/text whatever
((I used a bedrock background btw, normally I just use a real brick wall but wanted it to be minecrafty))



Soo let me know what you think ^-^
just an idea after all

Holy. . . shit. . . that. just. O: NOW IT NEEDS TO BE ANIMATED SO WE CAN PUT IT AT THE START OF YOUTUBE VIDEOS! Lol. I envision the camera panning into that sign being off then it flicking a few times before being on bright. That would be amazing. Imo.

Also great work, the bedrock matches the forum bg.

Thanks! Smile blue was the easiest to do but can be any colour really
and omg that sounds like a badass idea, the whole "turning on the neon sign" idea, pretty neat,
I can give the photoshop file to anyone that is interested in animating it if its needed XD I'm a novice to animation so yeah not for me at the minute Smile

Animation. We need an animator. I've no idea how to animate.

Video? Oh.. I thought this was for a banner... I only caught the last post or so and skimmed through it. I'm sorry, this video simply won't do for an intro video, Eeve.

So I redid it and added some stock sounds. I believe the newer version is much better. If you want to use it in video editing, I can send you the video file.

Here's a preview for the unimaginitve.

Love that intro video with sound!

Could probably even get one of us to record our voice saying "Halcyon Minecraft dot net" or something, to kind of add to it.

And we should totally have our own channel...........just saying. I'd make videos all the damn time.
