With NXT out as a beta, we're probably going to see a lot of possible changes to the game. A big one that concerns me is:

  • Inventory icons are now affected by textures. [1] [2]

I don't know if this will be the same in the live game, but we should decide now whether or not to use textures. I think the answer is obvious: If Cook Me Plox can automate textures, use textures; otherwise, use whatever he can automate.

Icons[edit source]

Comment - Will we do both textured and non-textured or pick one of them depending on the result of this section? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:10, February 19, 2016 (UTC)

For now, don't upload any new inventory icons. It's literally not worth the effort. MolMan 15:13, February 19, 2016 (UTC)
I won't add any new ones, because my images usually get tagged and replaced anyway :P, I was just wondering which we were going to do when NXT is live instead in beta. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 15:22, February 19, 2016 (UTC)

Keep normal icons - I.e. what the current Java game has. If HTML5 and the beta are any indication, the icons avec textures will be one huge glitchmess. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 09:54, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

Even without textures, NXT currently has different icon angles. Every file needs to be retaken if they stay this way. MolMan 13:56, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

Neutralish-Oppose I need someone to give me a good argument to why we should switch over, if they aren't gonna be in the live game. --9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 16:30, February 24, 2016 (UTC)

Did you even read? As it currently stands, they are going to be in the live game. MolMan 16:33, February 24, 2016 (UTC)
You are correct, I did not read the whole thing. That's on me. I apologise. I was in a hurry and [Insert More Excuses Here]. I'll read carefully. --9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 14:25, February 25, 2016 (UTC)
Neutral - After reading closely, I have decided that I'm chaotic neutral, like those dank memes i see on Google+ ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) --9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 14:30, February 25, 2016 (UTC)

Other images[edit source]

Inventory icons aside, should we begin retaking other types of images (e.g. equipped images, area images)?

  • Should we wait until NXT is actually released or begin retaking images while it is still in beta?
  • If we retake images before NXT release should we start straight away or wait for later beta weekends?
  • What needs to be retaken: should we retake everything or only things that look different from how they are in the existing client?

Well, someone (Italay) has already done some Priff clan distric image retakes in NXT. I kept [[:File:Piscatoris Hunter area (NXT Beta client).png|mine]] to the NXT page though, as I didn't know where else it would be welcome.

Wait until NXT is actually released. As we should know by now, a beta to Jagex is an alpha to any other software company. Things will change. --Saftzie (talk) 17:35, February 19, 2016 (UTC)
Retake locations/maybe scenery if they look better in nxt, and DIIs/equipped stuff/NPCs if the jpeg textures are gone, otherwise there is no point. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 15:31, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

AA - FXAA is bad. MSAA for wiki images. MolMan 19:38, February 21, 2016 (UTC)

Closed - There isn't much discussion to be had. So far, people agree that NXT icons will not be updated until they are pushed to the live game. Liquid 21:16, March 8, 2016 (UTC)
