General Chatter / Re: Exotica site down

Technically it's not down, it's just their SSL certificate that has expired (you can add an exception in your browser to temporarily allow the expired certificate). I'll notify the site owner about this.

I like the "mod" above "plug" aspect as in most of these variations. In particular omptvariations.jpg last column second from bottom one with the "tracker" below it. The "Open" text in that one looks a bit off though. Also, could you try introduing some spacing in between "od" and "lug" It currently looks somewhat crammed together.
General Chatter / Exotica site down

So apparently the module site is down, and has been down since December 1. Does anybody know about this?
and some more variations.
I love the one at the top, thinking of taking that direction a bit more next time.
Ok here are some variations on that design in the simplified form concentrating on the whole name. As you can see adding more words makes the whole thing become more complex. Simple designs tend to pop out more.
Keep it simple stupid  :-X
The black square icon is maybe a bit too nervous due to the vertical wires. At least for smaller sizes, they would probably need to be removed or simplified.

Certainly, that is the reason for simplified logos, in all cases. for example the smaller the instance the simpler the logo will have to go.
So for smaller uses of the logo we would use a simplified version such as the one on top.

The wide logo appears to be putting emphasis on the "Open" part of the name, which is the least actually meaningful part of the name, imho. Also, it completely leaves out the "Tracker" part of the name, which kind of contrasts with the shortened name "OpenMPT" that we have been using for quite some time now for the most part.

Interesting perspective - when I was inspired by the prev work, I was infact inspired by the bold emphases on the word 'open' which was I thought a well thought out choice... I will play with other tweaks and emphases sometime, concentrating on variations more focussed towards the full OMPT name.

because the background of the logo does not easily integrate into page layouts due to varying background color.
That can be quickly changed, I did this in macromedia freehand so it is all vectors.

Ok time to go kick myself ;)
Post it on youtube, or it didn't happen. :P
haha nice! You are correct, it didn't happen. Consider a degree of mental thrashing as having been done. I suppose I could post something of me kicking my own ass physically if you need it for ahem..."satisfaction" X_X

I have to say I'm not a fan at all of the roundness of this font. And as manx mentions, It's either OpenMPT or Open ModPlug Tracker - nothing inbetween.
Cool I will rethink the overall look with more experimentation for the 'whole' name... the font, I specifically made the way it is - ie I took a font I liked and changed some of the letters (m and n specifically) and then rounded them off in a way I decided would suit a more modern look for modplug.

I based the design off the one done by Ăšlfur Kolka, but without the bog standard and overused font, and with some other design elements.

Given that it's the Pattern context menu, offering contextual operations on the pattern, maybe right-clicingk the actual pattern would be a good idea? ;)
