very good! This could eventually evolve in a very clean and simple Icon theme. Maybe rethink the folder icons. I know what it should be, but maybe a simple cube which opens on the top and not on the side would be easier to recognize... well, maybe

Please continue your work!!! I know it is kinda boring, but it doesnt matter how long it takes you... It just matters if you get it done. So just continue...

I don't like these icons since the remake. The originals were very cool. Could you send me the originals so I can see about making more of them along those lines. Pleeeeaase! E-mail them to me at betterthanducttape@sbcglobal.net.

I like the second version (after the total remake) a lot better. Keep up the work on this.

Although, it would have been nice to have the first version still out there in case anyone else wanted to take off from where you left off with it :p

I agree, i know how hard it is to finish an icon set. It's fun to develope a new style but after that it gets boring ;-)

All my respect to the guys finishing there packages.

But i think half made icon sets are good to, they inspire people.

If you have a look at complete icon sets, you'll see that they contain around 600+ icons per size (3600+ icons in total)

That's not a single person's task. That's more a group task I would say. Unless there's a joint effort to finish a single one, very few will manage to complete.

Yes, thats lot of icons ;-)

My goal is to find an icon style that people like and then make a website for it with sources in diffrent formats and let everyone contrib. Weee sounds like an OpenSource project LOL ;)

Another coolt thing whould be to make a new sourceforge but with Iconpacks/Themes ;-)

Maybe they can add som ingenious functions here :)

I'll disagree about that you need to manually make versions for all sizes. I'd do the 128x128 ones (or maybe just the 64x64) and then use a perl script to downsize everything. Maybe it's not the best approach quality-wise, but if there are any differences here and there, it still saves lots of hassle.

meriksson: this is PDG work (Pretty Damn Good). Keep it up man. I'd be happy to contribute (ex graphics designer) if you wanted any help, but my hands are tied until mid-September.

If you're interested, I once used a perl script for this sort of thing (no 22x22 on icosx). It needs ImageMagick installed. The basic no-checks version is:

$size = "22x22"
for (<*.png>) {
  system "convert -resize $size $_ $_";
}

do a search for a 'resizeall' perl script and you'll find it.

PS, having re-read my post, I have to make clear I don't take credit for the 'resizeall' script I mentioned above. I downloaded it off the net and I just posted a couple of lines of it.

have fun,

I like this, somewhat GNOME'ish (whose icons are, sadly, much better, in my opinion).

I wouldn't make the bottom-left corner of the paper folded / pushed / foo backwards but this isn't my work.

This could morph into a very nice set of icons. I like the folder icons..quite nice. The K icon isn't as much to my liking but still pretty good.

Nice icons, however, use more colour variation and add more contrast, i.e. blue vs yellow, not cyan-ish grey vs orange. good stuff otherwise.
