The reason I'd like to see a new cursor is that the current one is really pixelly. So, it's not a mater of shape, but of graphics quality.

What about letting a new cursor look like the old one, but just less pixelly?

Why changing all of these graphics at all? Isn't the current cursor good as it is?

The reasons why I make the new graphics are: - Allow the graphics to be rendered in higher resolutions (BLEND files instead of raster graphics, e.g. for HiDPI displays, zoom levels, etc.) - Bring a consistent style into the graphics

I try to replicate the original look as much as possible, while being open for improvements (e.g. the used iconography).

I have been busy working on the cursor graphics. Mainly on the geometry and rigging but also added a currently crappy alpha blend to avoid the chopped-off look.

I also tweaked my blend version of the roadbuilding field selector to match better with the original version of kaputtnik:

kaputtnik's version, old blend version, new blend version

I never recognized that the style is not consistent and even now it's not bothering me face-wink.png

Okay... IMHO it would be the best solution if the new graphics look not different from the old ones...

I think that is better face-smile.png The old one is some how smaller and have more shadowed areas.

I like your old version face-smile.png Gun should make a decision and then i will update the widelands-media branch with the resulting blend file.

I guess that the old version will be easier to see on different types of terrain?

Good progress on the cursor hand, the shading is a good idea. Try to rotate it a bit so that it is pointing backwards at the screen somewhat, or bend the index finger a bit more?
