Thanks, Steve... but:

Ok, I should put some restrictions on the first post!

No connections to:
- FIFA (game or organization!!)
- PES
- Ronaldo (!!) or any other real money grabbing player!  :P  >:(

Wanted:
- Classic SWOS cover look, like the original ones!

Example attached! ;)

hi, i did something like this

(https://imgbbb.com/images/2019/04/17/swos-coverart-2.md.png) (https://imgbbb.com/image/a8mTy)

though it's only a sketch/design w/ possible copyrighted content (the swos players are from twitter)

but i think it's fun at least as a prototype and for promotional purpose

we can do anything w/ this

(https://imgbbb.com/images/2019/04/17/swos-cover-art.png)

and this

(https://imgbbb.com/images/2019/04/17/swos-cover-art-2.png)

but i think i'll start working on this

(https://imgbbb.com/images/2019/04/17/swos-cover-art-3.jpg)

or at least do something similar

i'd rather won't be working on the original swos 96/97 poster, because afaik someone hasn't managed to save the original background w/out the figures and first of all i'd need the 2020 writing (which i can make, but in time)

the 96/97 cover art was already used in the 16/17 edition, so i think it'll be nice to make new, but as playaveli said, it's a classy one, so can be an option

of course if someone is up to making cover arts, i'm not hired to do so and if my works won't make it to the release, i won't bother, because it'd be fun to practise (even though i'd buckle down, because this cover art i post is only on the fly)

btw sensible soccer 2020 sounds very nice, but i doubt you won't stick to swos 2020 (which also sounds nice, but not as catchy unwrapped to sensible world of soccer 2020, when it's classy though, but kinda old-fashioned)

i hope i added two cents anyway

respects

I'm done with it
If someone dares to adjust it, I'd send .pnd files (paint.net)
(Eg. the world/the ball isn't proper, but I won't be painting it - and the "Sensible world of..." on the first poster could be better, I guess)

I'll be doing some minor works now
Peace

PS. The two posters posted above are nice (but maybe also could use some better typography or stuff)

Think We need to get rid of the 2020 as im sure this release will include all versions of Swos
Title: Re: Cover art!
Post by: bosy on 16 May 2019, 18:44:18
lol, you asked for cover art for swos 2020 and now you claim you don't need the 2020 writing after all. i've posted before i'm planning to add it so now i'm out, sorry.
Title: Re: Cover art!
Post by: Playaveli on 16 May 2019, 18:59:16
Ask for? Claim?
Carling didn't do any of that, he is just giving his opinion. Calm down!

I've asked people to send in their proposals. So thanks for doing so.

k, i assumed that he's part of the 2020 team or something.
btw, i think that since it's the 2020 release, it would be ok to call it swos 2020 (even if it contains all the previous versions and when there gonna be minor - team - updates in 2021/2022/2137 or whatever. intuitionally i'd probably call it swos 2020 with 21/22 updates then etc. if not, how you're gonna call it? :P swos is reserved for 96/97, sensible soccer for other versions. long story short, 2020 is a good and catchy name for it imo.

afaik you're doing pretty well, i'm only interested in old mechanics->new ideas, for example implementing new default stadium vs implementing different default stadiums for different competitions; giving a team the same pitch for whole the career mode/season etc. not making it fifa 2020 (every team having everything of its own) but tuning it up a bit. afaiu there gonna be custom stadiums of choice?

as i said before, i can send you these posters/cover arts in .pdn (i have gimp, not photoshop, which is similar but not the same in terms of compatibility, so i resigned from using gimp). though these posters aren't very difficult to made (which hopefully corresponds with swos' complexity-simplicity), can be easily (or not that easily) tuned up and do pretty well. for example if to put different than black background to the original swos cover art or put a swos 2020 stadium into my swos poster. which of course takes time though is fun.

keep doing good anyway ;) peace

ps. swos total pack sounds good but swos 2020 sounds better imo

We might change some of the text in the triangle... but the main design is finalized!
