Hello GUNners

This topic is to amass, filter and organize screenshots of the best mods on GUN, so that we can turn them into Banners which will enter rotation on top of the site.

Please don't spam this topic with nominating dragbody's mods.
Yes, his mods will be included. What we need here are good screenshots which will look good as a banner.

We are looking towards featuring mods from as many games as possible, not just fallout. It is true that most of our mods are from Fallout, but we shouldn't neglect the few others we have from other games.

If you have a good, representative screenshot (that is your own) of a mod from one of our members, feel free to post it here. If you see someone else's screenshot somewhere in another topic, and you consider it highly representative of a certain mod from here, link to it and tell us who the screenshot author is and what mod it represents.

When you post screenshots, either use [spoiler] tags or just post direct links to the image. Your post might be edited by staff if you post the images in full size.

No screenshots will be used without permission from the screenshot author. No mod will be represented without the confirmation of the mod author. I can request the necessary permissions from any nominated screenshot or mod you might suggest, just make sure you specify correctly who did what, so that I won't bark up the wrong tree.

If all goes well, some of our best mods will be shown in our banners here on GUN  Thumbs Up  
Every valid, complete submission/suggestion/nomination of a screenshot of a good mod will receive +1 rep.

Thank you for collaboration
Best regards  Hello Hats Off

Edit:
Here's the official banner template for these mod banners .psd

Code:
https://www.mediafire.com/?k7xhu6edff799mb

remember to disable several of the layers (the bgs and testing bits)
and customize your GUNetwork or Gaming Underground Network text as you want.

last note: the font for the text under the banner should be Calibri at 14. Don't change that. If you don't have Calibri, get it or find something almost identical and maintain appearance. Cheers


__________________________________________
EDIT:
We've already included 6 of the made banners into rotation, with the mod author's approval! Here they are:
KRIEG COMPANION BY DVATED:
 
BF3 ASSAULT PACK BY MASTER_SHIFU:
 
STAR WARS BY CPT.REX:
 
OXIDE ENB BY TRU3TH:
 
TRU-ENB BY TRU3TH:
 
RIDDICK COMPANION BY DRAGBODY:
 
RUST ENB BY THEHERMIT:
 
... more to come ...

Thought I would get the ball rolling on this one. The screenshot I took features Dragbody's armor pack as well as Hopper31's Halo weapons pack.

Thank you, guys, that was a quick turn-out!
@mpaz96 - please specify the mods you're using (mod title and author), like Torki did Thumbs Up

to everyone else who plan on posting here - please keep your submissions to absolute best.
if you're gonna treat this as another gallery dump,
then it's gonna make it more difficult for us to select

Also, I've taken the liberty to find Dragbody's favorite screenshots
for his Riddick companion mod, from this topic he's setup a while ago:
https://www.gunetwork.org/t3745p30-contest-vgu-rules-the-dark-entries
These were the Top 2:
1. http://imgbox.com/zCfkN8Uc  |  2. http://imgbox.com/wJWGHmYT  

We should consider them foremost for banner options
if we want to portray the Riddick companion mod in one of our banners.

Best regards Very Happy

Very good idea to make a topic for this +rep from me. The number one you choose for riddick is from me so i can take care of it. I have asked OakshieldDream for help searching the screenshot section for usefull shots. She is on board to help.

How should an banner look like? Mod authors name? Mod name? Community?

@Cruz011
i like it very much. it is a nice example on how the banners could look like. however if i may i would like to make a suggestion... take liam neason to the left corner and the stormtooper to the right corner ( i would replace boba fett with an image where he looks stright foreward ) so each two of them look from the corners into the "gunetwork mods " word. i think that has a nice looking effect. but that is only a suggestion.. no need to make that if you dont want it Wink

many greetings
rex

I thought about this a lot, Cruz
it's a good idea to acknowledge the mod and author in the banner, but plastering various text fonts over the images would only conceal the screenshot from view

So I envision the following: the banner itself only has
GUNetwork or Gaming Underground Network
(if there's space and it fits better) on it, in whatever font and colors and position we want, but no other excessive words;
then, underneath it all, in basic white font, all caps, we mark the mod and author:

FEATURED MOD:   MOD TITLE   FOR   GAME TITLE   BY   USERNAME

I've cooked up an example for my own mod using one of MrMeowMeow's screenshots


If you like this idea, I can give you a format .psd with the appropriate sizes and position
the white border edges 900x200 and the text is in a 15 pixel tall transparent space underneath it (so these banners will essentially have 900x215, but with the bulk of it remaining in 900x200, it wouldn't bother too much)

I think it would look classy and be respectful for the mod authors and informative for users, and it would also set them apart from the Screenshot Contest winners in an obvious way (besides the # 1 element on those lol). Eventually we could adapt a similar setup for the contest winners, if it looks alright.

The text below the banner, of the mod title and game and author, could be of a color other than white, but all banners should use the exact same color on that section there, I think, or at the very least, the same font and font size

of course, this requires a single mod pack per banner, but I'm sure that's possible. Eventually, we could wrangle up Rex's armors and say "Star Wars weapons, characters and armors" ... by ... "Cpt.Rex"
But then again, a banner for each popular, individual release would be good as well.

what do you guys think? @The New Skynet? @Drayce128? @linorodarte20? @Mattafex? @Praefect? Everyone else?

Also, @AdvancedTerror - thank you so much for your submissions. I was really happy to see a Skyrim mod there as well Thumbs Up

I say YEAH. Looks very classic i like it. So please send me the file on pm. Also i would keep the color in white for the frame and all the lettering under. Its neutral and clearly visible.

@cpt.Rex - your suggestion is good. I will correct it later that day. Thanks for the feedback Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

@DVAted I think that is a great banner suggestion. The inclusion of the text underneath allows everyone to clearly see the mod information without taking anything away from the image itself.
I agree with @Cruz011 as well, the font should remain white for best visibility on the forums.
Is there going to be a limit on mod banners that will be used for the forums? Will it be like a top 10 or more?

That banner suggestion is definitely a great idea to show off modders and their work.

Anyway, here's some banners I threw together tonight out of boredom, using screenshots posted by AdvancedTerror.

BF4 Assault Pack - Master_Shifu::
 

Rust / Cobalt ENB - OmrSnaethorsen::

dayum closed eyes smile the difference between the first and second banners is like the difference between Witcher 3 graphics and Morrowind graphics haha
I mean, the effort and filters and special effects on the BF4 banner (and the stylization to make it look like BF4 cover art) are way above and beyond the scope of the simple text overlay on the cobalt banner haha

on the other hand, it's about the focus of the screenshot - the bf4 is about the weapon, and the cobalt is about the graphics (saturation, contrast, brightness, bloom, etc.) so having filters over the second banner would've been counter-productive.

so... anyway... I really really love the BF4 banner
and we only need to add the white outline and text underneath it Thumbs Up
and Master_Shifu's agreement of course Very Happy

Thank you for contributing, Praefect.
You've often said you're a graphic designer and it really shines through now.

I've made the .psd and will post a quick download link right here, so that everyone can submit their entries. remember to disable the test bgs (backgrounds) and ignore the glowy test things lol

Code:
https://www.mediafire.com/?k7xhu6edff799mb

Last note: the font for the text under the banner should be Calibri at 14. Don't change that. If you don't have Calibri, get it or find something almost identical and maintain appearance.

Also, to answer a previous question: no .gif animations on the main banner
Good luck!
