2-eyed frog is creature type, while 3-eyed frog is leveled creature list. Though seeing it now, it might be better to do it as with the container and add a ? symbol to the frog rather than a third eye.
What about a frog overlapping with a not-frog, like a bear or something? The thing that's missing from the tri-frog (adorable though it is) is the list concept. I think you'll only really need to see part of the frog face for it to be obviously a critter.

Or maybe the dotted outline of a frog with a question mark in the center?

Thank you for your suggestions, but I don't see them working within the limited 16x16 pixels space, combining multiple meanings or adding special line effects. For this particular icon I'm set on having the frog head with a question mark.

The frog signifies a creature (thus connecting it to the creature record type) and the question mark is shared between the two "leveled list" icons to signify random result. The editor always shows the icons with the record's name anyway, so there won't be any confusion.

For the last category, the top level records, I have roughly half of the designs decided on, the rest I'm still heavily prototyping.

The last category of Top Level Records is finished, meaning all the editor icons are now done!

Creature leveled list is changed as well.

Great work, Lamoot.

The "Enchantment" and "Magic Effect" icons are a hard guess though. The rest of the icons are easy to understand.

Thanks!

For me, it's the "magic effect" that's least clear, but I see how the enchantment is a tad random as well. I'll try to tink of something else, or if anyone has any ideas, those are welcome as well. Good to hear the rest of them make enough sense.

Is there a specific reason why these aren't yet implemented? Although somewhat WIP, I wouldn't mind them replacing at least the placeholders right now.

Icons editing-terrain and editing-pathgrid feel like superb replacements for placeholders already. Editing-instance is going to need some more icons to signify whether we are moving, rotating or scaling. I did make some fundamental ones for editing-instance just to replace placeholders, but these will obviously be better than mine when finished.

edit: oh, I didn't notice, you HAVE made transform-move, transform-rotate and transform-scale -icons too!

I changed the placeholders in OpenMW-CS to these new icons. Didn't make any icon overhaul though, so still most of these are unused. Made a pull request here.

Personally, I think I've changed my mind now. Since lamoots icons are complete for all required icons in the CS, I think we should make them the default. And then, if we someday get a change theme-feature, the old icons can be found there as an optional choice. I like both icon packs, but only one is complete...

I still can't find the icons for selection modes (centred cube, cube corner to corner, centred sphere), but new set is indeed more complete.

Yes, according to Lamoot's user page, these three are still missing. @Lamoot?

Anyway, I agree with you, lysol and unelsson: We should consider using this icon set by default. - I know that Zini objected to this in the past, but that was before Lamoot finished the rest of the icons.
