Change the colour... too much like CXL for my liking  :thumbsup:  And the typography is very Simcity 3000.  The icon itself (CM) works, just keep it simple and as I said, change colour.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it

SimCity 3000 means good or bad?

The first one, while I agree with callagafx re colour, it does get your attention, but something to think about

Quote
There are two major types of colour blindness: those who have difficulty distinguishing between red and green, and those who have difficulty distinguishing between blue and yellow.

so while I can see its a very bright red, orange and yellow colour, can everyone else see those same colours and more importantly see the logo pattern?

Neither... but it should have its own identity.

Personally, I like the circular logo, but furthering what everyone said about the color, if the M is going to be reddish brown, then the back has to not be the same, maybe do a red, yellow, blue, primary color type of thing.


Also, take a look at how the Metropolis Mania logo is implemented.

I do not understand. The color is not yellow and blue nor is it red and green. Red and yellow is not a common form of color-blindness. If someone has both of those color blindness, then it would seem to be blue/yellow and red/green and those two colors are different.

Update: I like the yellow, green, and blue because green and blue are my favorite colors.
If you always do YOUR best you will always be better than the best.

Can't think of anything better for a sig.

I think that the yellow, green and blue works as well, not only because they always look good next to one another, but also because they are sort of reminiscent of the colors for the RCI bars.

P.S. Hi

Great job townscape. Just continue like this. I still cannot do any serious work because I'm still waiting for my internet provider to have a little mercy and connect me already.

Yes, I agree!
I've already made some sketches but I still need to know how will it be organized. I don't really know where to start. Maybe we need a design document or something?

Also we need a writer or something similar to write all the  :satisfied: Motivational Mottos :satisfied: and info texts.

I tried contacting armagin concerning the website but he wouldn't respond to my pm or email.

Would you help me with organizing a template page or something similar with all the omni-present elements?
We can start a thread or something similar...

I am ready to begin whenever you are :)

Great job townscape. Just continue like this. I still cannot do any serious work because I'm still waiting for my internet provider to have a little mercy and connect me already.

I hope that all the problems will rule out for you soon, and we can continue. By the time you will have the work done, we will have a great base (the website) for additional contribution and recruitment, but we seriously need to think about what we will include. Maybe something like an embedded sourceforge page or similar mode of introducing contribution.
