Default Custom field templates

I have attached some examples of the customized field art and logos. People can customize the end zones by putting in files called [teamabbr]left.jpg and [teamabbr]right.jpg in the graphics\Endzones\ folder. They can replace the logo (a transparent gif) by storing a file called [teamabbr]logo.gif in the graphics\Fieldlogo\ folder.

We will provide a set of fields to be used (one snowy, another muddy, one for artificial turf and a normal grass one). Based on the weather and/or dome for the site, we will load one of the fields in the game. Here's an example of the normal grass field.

Finally, here is what all aspects of the above look when combined in the game.

That's what happens when you let programmers start fiddling with the graphics.

Problem noted, and it will be fixed.

It should be a transparent gif if it's anything other than a rectangular image. When I create transparent gifs. I save them with a matting (the edge area of the graphic) that is close to the same color they will be covering: in this case, a shade of green from the field.

You could save a graphic as a transparent gif without any matting applied and it will work, but it might look a little more "jagged" than one with matting.

Excellent! This will work. Nice touch with the weather graphic, as well.

Is there a way to change the crowd and stadium portions of the image? It'd be great if we could have different images for different crowd sizes, or otherwise reflect the uniqueness of each team's stadium.

Default Adding an additional field

Is there a way to add an additional field (the ENTIRE field) for just one team? I'd love to be able to have that funky-looking blue field that Boise State plays on.
