BattleShips


Jox gave me an idea (sorta) for a "Battleship" board skin... trouble is I don't know if I should do it in the "game" style design or in the "historical" real world design...

What do you think? I could blend both styles if I made the skin with a sidebar maybe...

If you go the historical route, there are lots of pictures in the public domain you can use without fear of copyright infringement. emoticon

Wikimedia Commons search: Battleship

Not all of those results are public domain, but they all specify whether they are or not.

Re: BattleShips


Like with 'Candy Land,' going with the game could be copyright infringement. I'd say go with the real world design.

I came across this author's site just yesterday, and thought how cool that ship would look on a forum/board.

Cool, that is a picture of the U.S.S. Enterprise. emoticon
Hubby was on the U.S.S. Nimitz 68...
And PASTOR...that would make a great skin for history buffs! emoticon
Pastor, I have a few LARGE photos of the Nimitz and of the Midway, plus San Diego harbor with other ships, that I took, if you wanted them. There would be no copyright infringements, as I would give you permission to use the photos I 'took'...though they are not perfect. emoticon

Re: BattleShips


This idea looks like it has legs (I mean oars) so I created the test board Battle Ship Row to start development... No time in a lunch break to do more that this but there will be some changes pretty quick. emoticon

Re: BattleShips


One Year later!

I decided that to have the maximum flexibility with the graphic design elements that Battleship Row should have a sidebar.

Here is what the skin looks like today:

Notice that I have not done anything with the actual message board side of things yet. I am just setting things up for now...
