 ZW3D 2012 Icon changes

Hi Guys, just installed the Beta2.
Sorry, but I gotta say using blue is really a bit sad.

The orignal VX purple has been a distinctive feature on my desktop for years.

Now it is blue is is lost among all the other blue icons - by my estimate approx 40% of all icons are blue or have significant blue on them.
Hey , it's not fatal stuff, but suggests that the bravery to be different is being eroded away.
If you want to stand out in the crowd, you need to be different.
My vote is for the royal purple.

I agree. VX purple is unique and would help ZW3D stand out.

That is the big change for the icons with more nice design, perhaps we can develop the function to add icon packs in the future, if the customer want to use different style of icons, just download different themes shared by the others.

Colin, changing purple icons so they match the ZWSOFT theme is a very bad idea. VX sucked at user interface design but they got a few things right... colors and the old website home page with that very cool airplane. Unique, exciting and wonderful are words that come to mind. Big mistake to lose this "feel".

Hi, Joh.

Just as you said, blue could the the key color of ZWSOFT, blue could be cool if we use it in a better way. Customization is always the future, I hope that there is somebody could have the solution to add icons packs to ZW3D, it will provide more flexibility for color choice.

VX purple was unique. Unique can be a big benefit in differentiating a product. I miss the purple, I miss the cool plane on the home page.

Suggest hire this guy back:

Thanks for your recommendation. Now we are going to release the new ZW3D 2012, let's see how it goes, and we are confident that people would love it as we get a lot of feedback about the nice change of the GUI.

Fair enough. I believe the best way to learn is by making mistakes.

1. I think it's a huge mistake to release ZW3D 2012 right now.

2. I think it's a huge mistake to lose the unique identity that VX established.


Time will tell if I'm right and I most certainly believe I'm right.
