doverdemon77 Posted September 19, 2013 Share Posted September 19, 2013 (edited) Needed this plugin to continue my research into why the icons I attempt to make for my MOW UI mod look all lame and stupid (like Qbasic fonts and graphics). Even when I use a feather plugin...they still look lame... So, I created this plug-in to look at icons (specifically dingbats from the dafont "Green Army Men") to see what sort of values are being used to make THOSE cool looking. PLUGIN NAME: ShadiSearch (v01) USE: 01. Can cycle thru Value(Shade), Transparency(Alpha), OR Saturation levels. 02. Replaces each instance of that level with whatever color is set in to Primary in the Paint.net pallete. Hopefully this helps me to learn how to make such icons better. For instance, so far i've noticed that these icons appear to take into account light source, skin reflectability, etc. Surprising how little of these types of icons are actually just 1 color. *source code included **Made with CodeLab ShadiSearch-v01.zip Here's version 2 adding "overdrive" functions (read below)...
