Maybe here we can draw the leaf without corrupting it. For reference I scaled the wikipedia picture to 100 pixels wide and anchored the 8 corners of the side borders. Hopefully we can make it look good!

Alrighty, the leaf is looking good, now nobody freaking touch it.

Filling both sides now, letโ€™s keep it going!

Would it be possible for a mod to make this a featured post for the duration of the event? @[email protected] @[email protected]

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

Sure yes :)

Looks like I don't get notifications for tags on my mobile app, didn't see it till now

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

I suspect it's because I edited in the tags after the comment had already been made.

FYI: I'm starting with the outline of the left half of the leaf. I have to go to work soon, but hopefully there'll be enough outline for the rest to be filled in (just mirror it one pixel over).

Is there a "faction" created yet

[-] [email protected] 5 points 9 months ago

I created one. Search for /c/Canada and you'll find it

[-] [email protected] 2 points 9 months ago* (last edited 9 months ago)

What are factions, and where do you search them? I don't see anything in the UI?

EDIT: found them under a link under info. Thanks for setting the faction up!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

I dont know what they do outside of identify you as being in one when people look at your pixels

[-] [email protected] 5 points 9 months ago

It took me way too long to figure out how to reduce the opacity of the template so I could start. Then I found out I only had 2 pixels?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 9 months ago

The V key will toggle the overlay completely. Each person gets to place 1 pixel per minute.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 9 months ago

The opacity slider seems more useful since you can see the leaf.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 9 months ago* (last edited 9 months ago)

Also, 1 pixel per minute, max 6 inventory seems cruel. I mean, I get the low pixels per minute, but it means drawing every 5 minutes for optimal output.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 9 months ago

It isn't linear. It takes 40 minutes uses to get all 6 pixels.

It's better to place one every minute while you can and then you'll have a nice supply when you come back from a break

[-] [email protected] 4 points 9 months ago

First time participating in this. Seems interesting, let's get this flag done!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

The leaf outline is finished. It's really starting to come together.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

Finished off the stem :)

[-] [email protected] 2 points 9 months ago* (last edited 9 months ago)

So should we use the pink to anti-alias sub-half-pixels at all or no?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

Once the leaf is more painted, give it a try and zoom out.

I dont think it'll look like AA as much as a pink outline

[-] [email protected] 4 points 9 months ago

Yeah, when I was picking a scale I intentionally looked for one with minimal AA cause I was worried about that. The 180-wide version was full of it, as was the 99.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

You picked a good scale imo

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

Except for one issue: it's an even width, so now we have the inevitable attempt to make it off-centered but pointy leading to a leafageddon. Oh well, can't have everything.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 9 months ago

I'm not convinced that the one dude isn't just a troll

Maybe it's time for this four month old thread to disappear
