xplorer2 Vector icon

Postby edvard » 2009 Jun 17, 00:21

Hi folks,
I was looking for larger versions of the official xplorer2 icon, and ran across this post:
(won't let me post link, search for "dock icon")
which is not exactly what I want.
I am wanting a larger version of the official icon, preferably in vector format so I can make a larger dock icon.
Is there such a thing? Or do I have to make it myself?

there is no official large vector icon but if you make one then you can share it with the rest of the community :)

I had a sneeaaky suspicion that might be the case  :wink: .

So, OK, here's my first attempt, in SVG format:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/okwuvmfnk2o/xplorer2.svg

And a 256 pixel png version:

I tried to remain as true to the original as possible, if there are any vector gurus on board, feel free to critique as appropriate.

EDIT: Files have been taken down; use this link instead:

Like a true OC (obsessive-compulsive), I tweaked it just a little.
Same links, same filenames, slightly different look.

:shock:

Thanks for the offer, but I'm not sure I'm ready to take on such a responsibility  :oops:
But please, let me know what you have in mind and I'll see what I can do... :wink:

not to worry!
btw did you know that you could make your own skins for xplorer2? i believe there are some discovered but unused icons here:

Far out!
I just took a peek in the xplorer2 folder and checked out the skins, does x2 only support bitmaps with magic pink or can it use alpha-mapped pngs?

I'll have to give this a go on my lunch break! :D

for the moment it's "magic pink" and 256 colors, there are more instructions in the skin pack

So, long story short, because the file was named 'xplorer2' it got picked up in the anti-pirate sweep and Mediafire flagged it.
I talked to Nikos, filed a counter-argument, but the files were still flagged two weeks later, so I deleted them and replaced them with a zip file containing the SVG and a 128-pixel PNG.
I've named it 'x2icons' so hopefully it won't get flagged again.
Enjoy:

EDIT: Changed the links in Post #3 as well.
