So! I have some ideas relating to Mental Omega's designs, but these aren't related to the gameplay, but rather the design choices, imagery, and general cosmetics of MO. This could be sprites, UIs, stuff like that. If there's an existing forum that relates to one like this in more detail, please let me know.
To start this forum thread, I would like contribute some ideas for flags, as designing things like heraldry and nationally identifying symbolism seems to be a forte of mine when it comes to graphic design. The flags in Mental Omega are kind of a mixed bag IMO; on one hand, there are flags like the Pacific Front and the Euro Alliance which I really like, and on the other hand, there are flags of like the Latin Confederation which seem just kinda… eh. This first picture is an idea for an update on the Latin Confederation that I have.
So, this is the idea for the flag, and it’s based on the FSLN, or the Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, which in English translates to the Sandinista National Liberation Front. This is a Nicaraguan communist party which holds a significant sway in Nicaragua, and has had a cultural impact in a variety of media relating to Communism and the Cold War. Wikipedia has an article on the group, if you’re more interested: https://en.wikipedia...iberation_Front
I also have an idea for an update on the Russian flag. I think it should look a bit different from the Chinese flag to give it more identity. What I did here was take the flag from the Russian SFSR, the main provincial identification to the rest of the USSR, and gave it a white stripe behind the blue one to make it look more like Russia. I’ve posted it below:
These are all opinions, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to contribute something to the Mental Omega community. I like this mod, and I figured a graphic contribution thread might help.
