So the time has come for me to choose an emblem for my trusty VIIB and i'd like to all you other captains coning tower art, so i'm calling you all out to post nice screenies of your coning tower with the emblem you're proud to wear clearly visible, wether it be self made, stolen of the internet or one of the standard one that come with the game.
For extra nice screens you can remove the hud with the keypad Del key.
Apologies for not starting this this thread of with a screenie of my own, but i'm having a hard time deciding on an emblem.

My online nickname is Moggy, so it's the black cat for me on my conning tower.

I went for the Black Bull emblem. My nickname back in high school due to my addiction to the stock market was "Dow Jones" and a bull seemed rather fitting, given my love for bull markets.

I thought they proved quite effective the first couple of times, and then the allied air started attacking in mass waves intstead of singly.

The emblems are stored in SilentHunterIII\data\Emblems\SubEmblems

Make your own emblem and add it there.

The emblems are in tga format and 64x64 resolution. If they are larger, the game will automaticaly resize them.
I have not entirely figured out how the alpha channel is defined, but at least true white (255255255) and true black (000) seem to be treated as transparent.

Help - I've tried several approaches but still can't get the background for my emblem to be transparent - my latest attempt with paintshop pro was to paste down the image as a new layer 2 on top of an underlying square layer 1 - I flood-filled the layer 1 with what looked like pure white but read 255,255,255 - I then saved the image down as a .tga file - the program says something about due to limitations/type of image file it has to save as a merged image or something - anyway, in game the emblem still shows up as my picture on a square white background http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

What am I doing wrong, and how do I get a transparent background?

Just tried black/0,0,0, but that didn't work either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Any suggestions?

The colour values were reversed in my previous post. I have corrected that.

Have you checked that the background is still solid pure white after the layer merge?

Yep - just checked and the whole background still appears to be solid white (255,255,255), but it's still showing up as a white square background in-game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Any other ideas?
