Icon ideas

Heeeeeeyyyy.

I, like, want to design an icon for that mod loader app I have, but I have no idea what concept I should use. I usually feel like I can do icons pretty well, but I just can't seem to come up with an idea that is simple but also easily recognizable and informative.

Right now it just uses the default Amnesia icon and I kinda wanna move away from those graphics. What I'll want is some sort of icon that can represent a mod loader/game launcher/modded game. But what represents a mod loader? Any ideas?

RE: Icon ideas

How about a gear with the A from the Amnesia Logo in front of it? Smile

You could even grab one of the gears from the editor and use that!

Trying is the first step to success.

Perhaps. But is a cogwheel best suited? Those are mostly used for settings/configs/tools. I guess it could work.

How about boxes then. As in packed files of custom maps.

I was thinking that too... A box with an eye on it, or an open box with an eye symbol rising out of it...?

Launcher also makes me think of rockets. An Amnesia 'A' with a rocket plume, taking off?
