I'm with everybody else. Of the ones available, #5 is best, however the Release Party shirts were much cooler.

Apart from the fact that the biohazard signs do not fit into the Defcon theme, there is also a music band "Biohazard", which uses the same symbol on some of their merchandise stuff. -> see www.biohazard.com

I like the basic idea behind #1, with the LAUNCH DETECTED and triangle, though the chat text, mouse pointer and outline of Africa detracts from the design.

Of the fan-made designs, I like Rimmers Feud-style.

I'll see if I can dish up a couple of designs myself, later. I have some ideas.

Oh, btw, anybody know what typeface the game uses?

Thank you.

And now for what I promised. A shirt design:

This one's based off of shirt#1, as you can probably see. Cleaned away all the unneccecary clutter (african coast, mouse pointer, the chat), and added the Strategic World Targets from the main screen.

Remade the nuclear-sign-with-triangle-inside, because that was easier than trying to clean it up. Could have been done better, but this is just meant as an example design. A couple of minutes in photoshop. But I like the basic idea, at least for the front. Something else might be needed for the back.

I like your design Torp, I think it captures the essence of Defcon much better :)

Well, mine is now in. It is basically the one I put up before, but with a differant background color:

Thank you.

One possibility I'm thinking of is moving the Strategic World Targets to the back of the shirt.

Like that. I sort of like the unconventional placing of the text in the first one, though. But this second looks, well, cleaner.

The second version is much nicer. I would submit that one Torp.

Torp,

I personally think the back of the shirt design for the target list is MUCH better (it looks kinda strange having it off set and low on the front).
