Yah, they aren't metal panels....they don't look like anything actually........

I really don't care if the old theme was dark, Glest has very little to do with darkness, it should use the colors of the homepage. ;D
I suppose... it should at least be included as a theme option...  ::)
Why don't you create it yourself then?  ::)
Ok, I have created a cool new glest theme and have now taken screenshots. Let me know what you think and what needs to be improved (if anything).
Cool theme.  8) Maybe not the best, but it's still better then the forum default theme.
Hmm...  ::)

BTW, it might be good to save the current database, because it won't be good to lose much posts again, like last time :P
I last saved it three days ago. I try to save weekly when possible. Using the school internet, it's almost instantly downloaded.

I need the exact dimensions, if you reisize it in a not proportional way the image will be distorted again
1000x162 (my previous estimate was pretty far off!).

I always preferred a sorta "thumbs up" system where everyone in the forum could "thumbs-up" or "thank" a post's author for their post. It has the effect of essentially  swapping "seniority by post count" for "seniority by helpfulness" instead. I don't know if it's functional for this forum type, but it's still interesting.
Yes, something similar to (sorry, EXACTLY the same as) youtube, don't you think, where you can comment just on that one post (or perhaps on that person in general). However, I checked the SMF forums and apparently that is one that has been requested but nobody has made yet (as of 2009 Nov, when that post was created, assumably still so, since I can't find one myself).

I found two 'thank you' style mods, but they both put the thank you's in the section normally used by the signature, so I don't know how well that would do, and seems a bit obtrusive...

Also, a minor change was added: a spoiler effect which is very popular on other boards was added. It can be used to hide text, shorten posts, split your post into manageable parts, allow collapsable areas of your post, oh and for spoilers.

I think a Karma system would be cool, at least add a rate up sort of thing.

Absolutely amazing tucho!!! The detail is phenomenal. Is it too much to ask for the model that you used to make it? (in obj)

Woodsmen is by far the best mod for Glest, I believe that one should have a place in the announcements. :D

Dude, it has specatular models, textures, and animations, it has it's share of problems, but it's not finished.
It's not really my opinion, I bet almost anybody would agree with me, it's very impressive.

I think the whole point of the news is to call attention to what's currently going on.  Woodsmen is among the best mods I've played, but if it's not being updated, then that makes it "old news". :P

It's not old, it just hasn't been updated for quite a while :P, but I may talk with Madmanntis(spelled it right I hope) and see what the situation is with that mod...

Woodsmen is probably the closest to original Glest in terms of modeling/animation quality. The general unit designs are great as well (maruader and forest protestor are my favorites). Animations are handeld really well, like the way the forest guardian grows and the protector falls onto the floor when dead.

My only gripe is that the faction is a little too similar to the basic glest factions in layout, so it doesn't really push the boundaries in terms of new gameplay.  Also the current release is hideously ovepowered, but that is easliy fixed  ;) .
