I took a break and helped my mother out, shes getting up there in years and needed some help so I was a bit busy and out today.
BUT this is it so far
like I ever stop
Almost done, got to add some more subs moving and some bubbles floating up, maybe a random quote of linux quotes in the lower right corner but not sure if I have room for that on this one, maybe make some swaying kelp (thanks to flyboy for that idea), if it doesn't take away from the main part, and if I can which I don't think I can but I'n gona try, make the whole freaking background move in subtle waves like it's really under water, maybe add some light moving like it does in water coming down from the top
when you do a mouse over on the right buttons (I moved them again
) a wave like sonar rings come out from the one you got the mouse on pluse the other gear like ring on the button rotates and the whole thing goes lighter, same with the whole login box, still trying to figure out how to do it for the users which are never the same size so its hard to make them standard but sonar wave like rings scale out and fade away, but the user image rotates 360 and the whole thing lights up a bit, if I can't get the scaling lines come out right I might scale the whole freaking thing instead and make it grow and maybe move in the center of the page instead. Still trying to think of sonar ring wave line things to come out from the dropdowns and look cool but if it looks like crap forget it.
I was thinking of having a tux scuba diving but I think theres enough going on in this one, maybe add bubbles floating up from your mouse also, and just in case anyone ask, no I'm not adding any mermaids
they wouldn't be porportiant with the city and subs, unless this is muchin land underwater
awwkkk forgot some fish
boot up gimpers make some stupid fish schools or something, maybe jaws eating a sub
trying to think of something else to do with that compass clock, was going to make it spin with mouse movements but then I would have to set up a panning of the background, thats another whole headache I'll do in another one so everyone can have an example of panning, I think thats it for now unless my brain blow up from going into overdrive with too many ideas
what started being a simple few hours of porting turned into a whole fiasco instead, but ya got to go with the flow sometimes.
Next one might be porting another steampunk one over with more gears inside a wall, it has an old tv in it just trying to think of something to put on the boob tube, I did have all the old test patterns, but I want something else for linux, maybe linux taking over windows or something in breaking news reports
And for that person who wanted the Matrix, I am going to do one, so it will be coming with tux as morpheus and maybe enmo, I'll see what happens when I start making the thing, I'm hoping it comes out like I got in my head, if it does it should be ok, I wasn't go to do it because it is passe but hopefully I can make it interesting, hmm maybe put the lunx quotes in that one, I'll see.
Back to gimpers and a school full of stupid fish or something.
Ps: in case anyone was wondering, thats the natilus submarine the big brown blob floating by
