Request: Animated arrow signs ported to TM2

Post by Zaiks » 19 Jul 2013, 15:48

I've been messing around with signs in TM2 Stadium today, and I tried directly importing the animated arrow signs that's used in TMUF and TMNF. I really like the classic TMN signs and would love to use them in my tracks. They look pretty bad in TM2 though, and I think the reason is the black gridlines in the signs. So I tried tweaking them using RAD Video Tools and ScriptLab filters in Paint.net. I removed the black gridlines using gaussian blur. SignDown and SignLeft are the ones that I've changed in this screenshot:

Apart from being blurry I think they look better than the original ones. I'm wondering if anyone has made something similar already, perhaps there's already a pack of animated signs without black gridlines? If not I might try making one.

I recommend you first check this out http://forum.maniaplanet.com/viewtopic.php?f=265&t=9305
as there are already many nice signs. Some look similar and could be reused, you might ask Elmigo.

Thank you, I checked out the thread and tried the Rainbow LED Animated signs. I had assumed they would suffer from the same problem as the old signs, but it turns out they look great in Stadium (probably the high resolution helps). I'll use those instead (following the agreement ofc), props to Elmigo for making awesome signs! I'll make sure to do better research next time before creating a thread.

Hello Zaiks!

TMarc sent me the link to this topic, so I checked it out. I hope you enjoy the signs. I'm still working on the Rainbow LED pack. Don't know if you noticed yet, but there are going to be many different colors. I missed the old TM Nations signs too! I consider re-making that package (+ more) to be available in TM2 like I did with the Trackmania 2 default signs.

But anyways, I wanted to share some information! If I finished the Rainbow LED pack, I'm going to work on circuit screens for both Stadium and Valley. I always wondered why (as far as I know) there are no downloads around the internet for that.
Kindest regards,

Elmigo.

I meant you don't see any circuit screens uploaded by people. All you see is the normal signs. I wondered why.
Kindest regards,

I'm quite happy with the signs. I did see the different colored LED signs, and it's nice to have more options for different moods and map styles. :thumbsup:
By circuit screens, do you mean the loading screens before the maps start? Or do you mean the map thumbnails?
EDIT: Or mayhaps the race-UI?
EDIT2: I just figured out you mean the actual screens on circuit blocks (doh). Custom circuit screens would indeed be cool.
