Bailout Smiley Suggestion Issue Tools

Bailout Smiley Suggestion

Read Urwumpe's thread, and came up with this idea: how about a bailout smiley? It's for colorfully describing bad situations orbinauts have been in in their travels among the planets.

It could show a smiley pulling an ejection handle and then floating down in a parachute.

Was just a thought.

I like the idea, but first, how about we change this to a feature request since this is most certainly not a bug. Please pay attention to which option you select when posting for support. For more info, check out this thread.

We'll see if we can find any smilies like that or perhaps make our own if not.

Good idea!

I find the smiley a little strong for those "darrrrghghghhgh, what the heck, let's play Minecraft" moments.

Err...I tried, but it seemed to take me right to the Bug Report page So I figured what the heck, just use what's there. I'll get fussed at a little bit, but...

Anyhoo, thanks for the link. Will give it a look

What about lemmings and umbrellas?

I think the above smiley is a bit big, I was thinking of doing something similar but using "wind" to make the smiley fall....like in cartoons when they do a close up.

Actually that would be my fault you couldn't post a feature request. I forgot we disabled feature requests for the time being. Sorry about that!

Concerning Viper1's submission there.. I too think its way too big. I like the smilie with the parachute though, so what if we only used that part for the bail out smilie?

I'm working on a smiley at the moment. It might take a while - pixel by pixel frame by frame is a really painful way, but it makes the smileys worth it a la as opposed to my original

I'm working on making the smiley jump out of a tardis (okay so i'm a geek) and fall with a parachute as the tardis maybe explodes. I haven't got that far yet!

here is a version, no explosions as I think it looks fine without. Let me know if it needs any further editing.



Edit
garyw said it looked like he was packing a tree, so I altered it

Is this better? Or I can send you the PSD for further editing.

the second one freezes at the end for a few moments before it starts up again.

That was intentional as apparently the restarting quickly was irritating.

And one final submission in the spirit of the original request the eject button press.

Ok, but could you shorten the freezing it really looks like its gonna freeze there. IMHO thats more annoying, but thats just me.

Krys is working on it.

Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions
