Unit logo generator??
« on: 01 September 2020, 02:32:48 »
I'm looking for a basic graphic logo generator?? I used to know of an rpg website with name, plot, and heraldry generators for fantasy and scifi RPGs, but I cant find them any more...
I'm looking to make the logos for a few in my custom units and then get decals made.
Anybody know of a site or app?? Hopefully free? 😁

FantasyNameGenerators.com has a bunch of different descriptive generators, as well as name generators, if that's the site that you're thinking of. Not sure if they have a generator for the actual artwork, though, if that's what you're wanting.
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

"Hmm, I wonder if I can turn this into a MM map."

Very similar. The old site I'm remembering has a section for making basis heraldry and other logos. You picked the layers like shield or circle and then you could divide and quarter the design and add silhouette shapes like lions, stars etc. No color, but the final image could be printed and colored. I wish I could remember the name...

It has something like that (not quarters or I missed them) https://rollforfantasy.com/tools/coat-of-arms-creator.php

In trial against the ice hellion's mettle.
Each chased the ice hellion, hunting it down.
All faild to match the predator's speed and grace.

If you're looking for something a little more robust but with a mild learning curve I can't recommend www.heromachine.com enough.

Unfortunately, I don't know about such sites, but it will be fantastic to use them if someone offers something. I mostly create everything myself from scratch now and use my knowledge. I create icons for games with https://crello.com/colors/palettes/ where I pick up beautiful colors. I have seen many users on various gaming forums use these icons, and I'm very proud of myself. Anyway, my design teacher says this is a great result to start with. He thinks I could get into a well-known company if I keep up the excellent work. I thought it was incredible, considering I've been doing this for a little over a month.
