    Soviet version (Note be sure to click on this to see the full version. The reduced size changes the look of the logo a bit.)

    Thanks for the freebie! Did you want the paintshop pro files for them as well?

    Yes please. If they are too big to email ( eg over 2Mb each ) then can you please upload them to a drop box and email me a link to them. Thanks.

    They're all great, but the Soviet one with the writing obscured by the braiding is very unclear for me (colour blindness could be contributing, not sure). I think you should have two lines of gold braid above and below the lettering, not behind it, or make the braiding as thick as the lettering. .

    I see your point Peter.

    Richard, could you please oblige Peter and provide a Soviet version with the braid above and below the lettering.

    Here you go. I can't say I like this version, reminds me of Burger King and it's lost it's Russian-ness. Let me see if I can adjust the contrast on the original or add a more darker layer under the lettering.

    How's this JC? I've added a bit more shading to the lettering so the there's more definition.

    I really like the double band one, Plodder. But the one above is good too - clearer, for sure. I would worry, if I were Dave, about the title being cluttered and lost though, with that band behind the writing, especially if it's used anywhere where the size is reduced etc. On a less relevant note, it's not going to be 'physically' correct like that, with letters stitched over embossed braiding - they would have to actually curve over the braiding in real life. Not that that matters, if it works - but for me the double band one is great and really clear. See what Dave thinks. Thanks!

    Maybe thinner ribbons on top and bottom, with more of a gap between lettering and braids... but red stars on top of the ribbons kinda like the American version...

    I really like this version.

    It's good we have time to mince about on details like this isn't it :)
    Something to do while the wait gets more excrutiating every day... :D

    Excellent work Richard :happy:

    I don't have time at the moment to contribute much I'm afraid, but I think your shoulder patches are great, and so is the Situation map, place holder.

    Oops I forgot to ask you Richard for a copy of the default SAM image in bmp format. I just need the SAM image not with the rest of the scenario selection screen. It should measure 640 x 480 pixels. Thanks mate.

    SITREP 1645 Friday 23 Jan 2015

    Hi all. I have finished off all outstanding tasks bar the issue of the disbanding bases as reported by Peter this morning and the need to replace the file icons we use. The current ones have BFTB all over them. Hopefully Marc von Martial who did the current set can work up a new set asap. On Monday I will look into the disbanding bases issue and then upload all the files to LNL who will then prepare the installer. We will need to test this before we can make it publically available. We ARE close. CO2 is coming.:)
