Is there a possibility to add overlays on ice like for example league badges in FIFA? I mean something like this:

We have Faceoff, Playoffs an Final logos on the ice already, Pep. Unless I didn’t understand your question.

Yes, we have, but if we can do that, this option will be easier and quicker to make for modders (6 files instead of 90) and better for players, because you'll have less files to install.

That's basically how it will work in the upcoming rebuilt overhaul. Instead of one large ice texture per team, there will be individual ice components that are automatically layered during loading. This will significantly reduce file sizes and make it much easier for modders. Everything that repeats on the ice only needs one texture, and that one texture can often cover every ice. For instance, right now there are 4 end-zone circles stored in a texture for every team. That could be reduced to 1 that covers all teams. That's a pretty high compression ratio when you think about it. Now do that for everything else on the ice, like goalie crease, face-off spots etc. Modders then only need to focus on art that is unique to the team they are working on.

Pepis, I'd say go ahead and start the ices, if you want and have the time for it. We can easily incorporate them to Launcher later when it's ready. Besides, for some users (like me) new Launcher doesn't work properly so it'd be nice for these users (like me) to have the ices updated as well.
