Friends, this has been a long time coming. It is time for the mighty CODE. alliance--the most talked-about alliance in EVE--to get its own in-game logo.
I know what some of you are thinking: "Didn't we already design an alliance logo, like, a long time ago?" Aye. Many, many moons ago, our artists created a bunch of logos, a shareholder vote was held, and a logo was submitted to CCP for review.
Then CCP stopped approving new alliance logos.
For various reasons related to copyright law, CCP put a temporary freeze on logo submissions. For over a year, EVE players clamored for their alliance logos. At long last, the logos are back.
"Why don't you just re-submit the previous design?"
The logo requirements have changed significantly. Among other things, the resolution has been bumped up (if you'll pardon the pun) to 512x512. So we've got to submit a new logo design. This means that all you New Order artists have a chance to become a part of EVE history. Anyone and everyone can come up with a logo and the best one will be sent to CCP. Another shareholder vote may be necessary; we'll see.
You'll have free reign to come up with a design, but the basis of the design will be the same as before.
Namely, my face.
Yes, it's the face that changed highsec. When people see a picture of my face, it reminds them of my face, which reminds them of me, which reminds them of hope and all good things.
Here's a link to the full-resolution portrait of my face. Now do with it what you will. And no, all you rebels and skeptics out there, that is not an invitation for you to be disgusting. Be a Gallant for once.
For CCP's new requirements, you can read the dev blog on the new alliance logo requirements or the EVE-O thread on alliance logos. You can also view the list of alliances with approved logos.
Submitting a logo to me for New Order review is easy: Simply upload it to Imgur and EVEmail me the link.
The winner will be celebrated on MinerBumping, or if we receive many submissions, we'll have a shareholder vote. Artists should feel free to work in teams or send in multiple submissions, if they like.
Here are CCP's "Submission Technical Requirements:"
- Logos must be submitted in 512x512 resolution.
- Formats accepted are 4 channel .PNG or .TGA with three color channels and one alpha (transparency) channel.
- DO NOT use premultiplied alpha.
If you don't know what all the channel/alpha stuff means, don't worry about it. Make a 512x512 image and if it finds favor, we'll have someone work out the details.
Because CCP is free to reject any logo it doesn't like, consider the art requirements below. The art department may not be as strict as the rules suggest, but keep them in mind. If the New Order community loves a logo and it gets rejected because it doesn't fit with the proper EVE "theme" or "colors", we'll need back-ups.
Design & Theme:
- Alliance logos should be designed so that they look and feel like they belong within the futuristic, dark and dystopian EVE universe.
- Logos with themes like warfare, corporations, science and space have a higher chance of approval.
- Reference to historical themes or imagery should be subtle. A well designed and modified version of a historical object that is designed to fit in the EVE Universe will in most case have a higher chance of approval than the definite interpretation of it.
- Many concept and ideas from earth have evolved or been forgotten in the EVE Universe. Remember this when designing your logo.
- Common everyday motives/objects like mobile phones, modern guns, modern vehicles that fit poorly within the genre should be avoided.
- Cartoon images have a lower chance of approval, but if they are well produced and follow all the other requirements, then they will more likely be approved.
- Simple flat and abstract designs fit best in the EVE setting and have a higher chance of approval. They are also more recognizable, easier to read from the distance and work better when scaled down.
- Try to use classic, modern or futuristic fonts. Fonts like Papyrus, Lucida Handwriting and Brush Script don't fit in the EVE universe.
- Use of Comic Sans will result in liberal application of spaceship violence.
- Avoid using Photoshop filters like Lens Flare, Emboss, Blur and other such filters.
- Textures should be avoided in your logo submissions.
- Colors should be chosen within the color range used in the EVE universe. That means colors should generally not be too saturated or bright or they will look like they belong in a different color space than the ship and its surroundings.
- Try to keep color harmony in mind. Try to use analogous colors and not too many complimentary colors together.
- Punch colors/complimentary colors: sometimes a single color can be a little brighter or more saturated to make the image "pop" or look more interesting.
There you have it. There's no particular time limit for sending in entries. After a time, I'll post potential logos on a MinerBumping post and then maybe set a deadline for any additional submissions. Again, make a 512x512 image based on my face, upload it to Imgur, and EVEmail me the link.
Good luck! And remember, highsec is counting on you.

Pure gold! Love it!
Damn near ruined another keyboard. Should never drink while reading MB.
We should all be blessed The big mighty Colonel has once again decided to impart his wisdom on us again. Boy you are just a regular Einstein aren't you? Please tell more about how to be as smart as you. I want to learn from the best.Delete
M is actually being sincereDelete
Such bitter children. Your juvenile text means nothing. Please put some effort into in. Your trolling is... mediocre at best.
INB4 trolls take advantage of this.ReplyDelete
i wonder if the antignakers can hold an alliance together to get a logo. last i checked they hide in NPC corp so thats a big fat nope!ReplyDelete
As a lawyer I have no use for art!ReplyDelete
And, for some reason, people fail to understand why I refuse to acknowledge anonymous carebears as "people."Delete
The above posting should explain why.
Hmm...I think I'll take a shot at a Code alliance logo. Time to brainstorm.. :)ReplyDelete
Kalynn, are you stalking Kaely too?Delete
You sound like you're jealous there fake Kaely. What's the matter, you can't get any so you're angry with everyone else? You should really be careful though..posting here and laughing about it in AG channel kinda defeats your anonymity doesn't it? Look, if you don't like Code, too bad..but Kalynn Shardani, grow up. As a female you make yourself an even lower POS than the other idiots that fail troll here. Are you mad about something? Do you fit the typical cliche of the female gamer? You can fail troll me all you want..i know what I am, how I am, and where I stand..and don't feel the need to prove anything. Troll on chubbs :)Delete
Calm down fake Kaely @ 12:02!!!!Delete
Its just a game.
Still so sad about not being on the top 10 douche bag list, and being scammed out of 11B isk. But I feel important, because I act like a Nazi and use words like "Subhuman" and "it". I also have my porn to keep me happy since I can't get laid living in my parents basement :)ReplyDelete
i may actually have to start posting with my in game name ...i can't be associated with tha individual ^^^ReplyDelete
As a matter of fact I do...my husbands. You jealous? Just can't seem to get a woman to take care of you that doesn't require payment? Keep trying kiddo..there's some girl out there that's in your league..lolDelete
WOW.... You really have no life do you? This entire thread thus far with the exception of a couple of posts are just you fail trolling... Come on man show at least some self-respect for yourself, Jesus Christ....ReplyDelete
This may have been funny the first couple of times, but now its just making yourself look like more of an idiot everyday... Why don't you try something new, because you certainly aren't winning. Your just the laughing stock of the blog right now, by both code and carebear alike...
inb4 anonbear claims that your's and others' disdain for him is tears and ROFL LOL LMAOs.Delete
Its the antiganker mod - Kalynn Shardani doing all the offensive posts. She brags about it in Antiganking.Delete
Ah, the mining consultant, LOL. Why am I not surprised it is one of this fail anti-gankers.Delete
Its Kalynn Shardani? Sounds like Jenn en Maryland should ban her from Age chat.Delete
The same Kalynn who said Gorilla was a terrible human being... Hahaha irony at its best.Delete
Autocorrect yanked my comments.Delete
Well at least im not being blamed again for it.Delete
I noted for every actual post i do there is like 5-6 fake -=M=- posts, guess im as popular as ming. (that left a bad taste in my mouth) :(
P.S. Yes i agree with the code crowd, the trolls need to finally stop.
I almost spit my coffee out when I read your last comment.
Hmm... And who never said we had fans with in AG :PDelete
Someone should tell her to change her act. Its beginning to become stale and boring.
@ ming 5:33Delete
Well, i freely admit i do not like code, but even i dislike the trolls.
This forum could be alot better without all the trolls.
Wow, the antigankers are going into Nazi territory?ReplyDelete
Ok, As an experienced Space Lawyer I hereby refer to "Godwin's Law" (and i Quote)
"that once such a comparison is made (The New Order of Hitler.), the thread is finished and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever debate was in progress.This principle is itself frequently referred to as Godwin's law."
Damn Antiganking, All they ever do is FAIL.
As a lawyer I realize that in game mechanics are exactly like real life, thus if you gank your are a real life criminalReplyDelete
Feels good man.ReplyDelete
Nah, this is just the same old crap that has been being said by the same person now for about 2 months.
You know you have failed when you you have to jump straight to nazi's and Hitler with your trolling.
Notice it stopped when anon posted who was really behind it. Kalynn shardani AG moderator and they don't think they are toxic at allReplyDelete
your actually both toxic in your own way (code may be slightly less so, but still)ReplyDelete
Please tell me the last time any code agent used false names to make sexually charged vile comments, or troll about rape, nazi's, or prostitution. You say slightly less so, but no agent has come close to the level of childish vile trolling.Delete
Some of Ming's more controversial remarks aside I'd say we hold ourselves to a much higher standard then the common AG folk. It was one of many factors I took into account when I was forced to choose a side...
Obviously you forgot about maria. She admited to doing just that.Delete
uh... none of Maria's fake -=M=- posts were not in any of the category's described above, now was it.Delete
Got to love how she excludes ming when she is trying to defend code agents. I can see why, it doesn't do anything but run its mouth and pretend its an agent and relevant in anyway.ReplyDelete
Inb4 ming cries out that it's 'really' is a code agent. Would be funny if code would denounce ming, then it could cry more by claiming it donated.ReplyDelete
^^ This ^^ReplyDelete
You're calling it "inevitable" that the word "subhuman" immediately means "Nazis." That's an absolutely false comparison and you know it. Those two words can, in fact be used in completely different subtexts from each other.
Miners find it convenient to compare the slaughter of six million innocent human beings to being blown up in a video game. To their vision, they see no difference. This is one of the many reasons they earn that moniker. That, and the fact that they freely and without any sense of remorse make fun of real life rape victims. If there is any type of person that I would deem "subhuman," it is that kind of person.
That doesn't make me a Nazi. It makes me a truth-teller.
No, it just makes you a cheerleader for code, but not an agent.
An agent does something other then run his/her mouth all day long.
Perhaps if you undocked and actully got into a fight instead of just talking, maybe some people would have a bit of respect for you and call you an agent. Probaly not, but its better then what you do now, which is talk and claim to have donated isk.

This was a clever pun of my name Jacob and Cass. I get called ‘Jack’ and ‘Jake’ quite a bit for my nickname instead of Jacob and when you combine the nickname Jack and my last name Cass… well, you get JackCass or jackass if you will. nice logoReplyDelete
