[Request] Radar/Radio Tower

Postby Optera » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:41 pm

I'm looking for an artist who could provide me with a form of radar or radio tower to update the graphics from vehicle radar.

I imagine a big electric pole with mounted static antennas or a radar dish on top to go along with the Factorio theme of reusing existing items.
It would be nice to have both variants so vehicle and train tracker are visually distinct.

The Wireless Signals mod has some relevant graphics you may find useful.

Thanks, but the reason i made an art request is so I don't have to install blender or similar 3d graphic software, set up angle, lighting and so on to generate proper sprites for Factorio.

I was thinking you could use the already-rendered sprites as-is -- but if they don't suit your purposes, then yes, perhaps it is better to seek other sources.

Sadly he used varying angles and kept the ground plates, making those sprites clash against another and Factorio structures.
Also that pack contains a radar tower with rotating dish, not using something this ideal would feel like a waste. ;)

You might have better luck making an art request in the Texture Packs Forum (see this thread for the information you should provide in your request).
