I hated the garish red ones so much I made my own. Got to much time on my hands at the moment ;)

From left to right, Rifleman, Heavy, Sniper, Assault, Unused, Commando, Extra (names refer to the image names that have been coded

I'll zip em up and throw em in the mod's forum if people like em.

Looks nice, but have you considered that your ballistic images will be a tad out of date when the player updates to tier 2 or better weapons?

(what about a rocket or grenade role image?)

Yes I thought about them however the role of sniper for example is played out with a variety of weapons so it makes little difference what picture is used, as long as it represents sniping. Maybe something more generic like crosshairs would be more appropriate.

There are CRASH extra and unused images (7 in total) to modify. I tried to add more but it dosnt work due to the coding. When you create a new role and choose an image (lets say i made an 8th for rocket launcher) and selected a rocket launcher icon I made, the game catagorises it as unused so it displays the image saved as unused instead. In the set I made above I think the medic symbol is designated as the unused image.

I certainly used to be able to select form quite a selection from the ones I made way back. I haven't tried them recently.

I don't mind that the symbols don't upgrade with the tech. As long as each is distinctive and representative.

Look forward to seeing them in the mod section (if they aren't already there)

I thought you could add as many images as you wanted. Huh.

I tried adding lots more, but all the empty spaces you can select from just showed my medic symbol. Not sure why

I love these icons, Aufklarer. They're beautiful. The only problem for me is that the Heavy Support looks too much like a rifle; I know that's how a machine gun looks like, but you could go for something more bulky to make it more distinct.

Anyway, I really, really hope that more icons will be available, since I definitely have more roles. Please?

Yeah I'll add them to the mods forum soon, I'm actually waiting for a flight home from afghanistan at the moment for RnR so internet is pretty crap here.

I also had another look at the file names and it was just me being a muppet, ill add plenty more icons like rocket launcher squad leader etc. If anyone has any requests ill make some up to the same style as the ones I already made.

I think simplicity might in order.

Crosshairs for a sniper

A bullet for a rifleman

A bullet chain/rocket (or minigun) for heavy

Shield for shield carriers

etc...
