    Yes. Aqua-like. Not just plain vector-drawn-like. But I'm talking about a whole new icon, like a plug in the original LimeWire icon. A green Aqua-like plug. Your current LimeWire icon is nice, but it wouldn't lend itself to being Aqua candy-ized, I don't think, due to the small size of the wire and the texture of the lime. So basically, ignore my silly suggestion.

    There's an aqua-ish LimeWire icon in tomorrow's posting... not exactly what you described, but pretty decent...

    Hey Mike, how about a group of document icons to replace all of Apple's? This would include text, clipping, plain, all of Preview's, QuickTime's, iMovie's, and any others based on Apple's "sheet of paper" icon. Why? IMNSHO Apple's "document" icon looks bad at smaller sizes (I have my icons set at 32x32). Even if the border was just a little darker and discernable, that would make looking at them so much easier on my eyes.



    Of course, I don't actually expect you to pull off a big task like this (but, please, you're welcome to if you want!! ); I just had to voice my opinions on these icons. Ick.

    Some of the icons that I would really like are:



    a fish tank (aquarium)

    a redwood tree or grove

    a good icon that depicts a download folder

    a roll of film

    a match book

    greenbacks (money)

    a backpacking backpack

    the earth

    something that depicts school (a rubix cube is what i use now)

    a book stack (shelf)

    a phonograph

    a movie projector that is projecting something





    Hope that gives you some ideas. I am always looking for icons that fit on general folders like -&gt; random;downloads;school;video;audio; finance;educational;outdoor stuff





    Thanks to all icon makers!

    The Photoshop and Illustrator icons are fabulous, I can't wait for the rest. How about an OS X Final Cut Pro icon too, even though it doesn't run in Classic.

    Icons I would love to see aqua-fied versions of:



    ICQ (the default one is uuuuuuugly)

    Carracho Server (So it matches your spiffy Carracho client one)

    Hotline Client

    Hotline Server

    Sherlock (A cartoony aqua version would be nice since the default is rather photographic)

    Haxial Client

    Haxial Server (If you don't know what Haxial is, it's a Hotline/Carracho-style of program which is pretty decent. Check it out at <a href="http://www.haxial.com)" target="_blank">www.haxial.com)</a>

    The graphical quality of your icons appears to be improving rapidly, but I have two gripes:



    1. The Illustrator icon should feature a pen, not a pencil.



    2. The Photoshop icon gives the impression that it is a tool for sucking blood out of people's eyes.

    Michael,



    I just browsed your website and noticed several icons that would get posted on Xicons. If you would like them to go up, please submit the application icons you have in one set, and the ribbons in another. I'll post them this week.
