User Zerpha The Improver Inventory icons project icon.png

This project is dedicated to upload inventory icon images on the wiki.

It will focus on uploading (unique) weapon icons, armor icons and missing icons of other types.

Image naming[edit]

If there is a render image saved as .png at the location you wish to upload, resave and reupload it as .jpg to avoid naming conflicts.

Some items share inventory icons, in which case, the image should be uploaded once and then shared on different pages.

Armor icon naming[edit]

Image:<Profession> <Art> <Piece> <gender>.png

Example:
The headpiece for male Charr Hide armor should look like this:
Image:Warrior Charr Hide Helm m.png

Weapon icon naming[edit]

Normal item skins are uploaded with just its name.

Example:
If you want to upload the icon for a Archaic Axe, it should look like this:
Image:Archaic Axe.png

Weapons with multiple skins[edit]

Items that share multiple skins should have the file name appended with a disambiguation identifier. See Guild Wars Wiki:Formatting/Article names for detailed information on accepted forms of disambig identifiers.

Use the item name, then in brackets a word that describes the skin more precisely and differentiates it from other items sharing its name. If the word is a common noun it should be uncapitalized (i.e. "common"). If it is a proper noun it should be capitalized (i.e. "Nightfall").

Naming can be very diverse. Item skins with the same name share one page at the moment, although render images may already be named as advised above. If a disambiguation identifier hasn't been chosen for a skin, then you should choose the best fitting one. You can also change any identifiers that are inaccurate or inadequate.

There are often reward weapons that use a specific name for each of those skins, so in case these exist, the disambiguations should be adapted to their names. Also mind capitalization here when preceding.

Examples:
There are several Earth Staff skins, Tolkano lists the "metal skin" as "Canthan Earth Staff", so its name should look like this:
Image:Earth Staff (Canthan).png
There are several Hornbow skins, but only one that exclusively drops from Mursaat, so its name could look like this:
Image:Hornbow (Mursaat).png
There are several Ancient Daggers skins, but their skin depends on their rarity, so its name could look like this:
Image:Ancient Daggers (common).png
There are several Hornbow skins, one of them looks exactly like another item skin with the same name (in this case the Dragon Hornbow, so its name could look like this:
Image:Hornbow (dragon).png

Reward weapons[edit]

There are several item names and skins that only occur on reward weapons. Like regular item skins, these are simply uploaded under their name.

Example:
If you want to upload the icon for a Seahorse Scepter, it should look like this:
Image:Seahorse Scepter.png

Unique items[edit]

Unique items should have individual icon images uploaded, whether or not they share their skin with a normal weapon. Many unique items do not use either the model shape or color (and accordingly inventory icons) of normal item weapons.

Example:
If you want to upload the icon for the Woe Spreader, it should look like this:
Image:Woe Spreader.png

Image descriptions[edit]

Add the according licensing template to the file

  • If you got your image through gw.dat, or extracted it with texmod, use the {{arenanet image}} tag.
  • If you got your image through an in-game screenshot, use the {{screenshot}} tag.
Note: It's advised that you upload icons with transparency.
  • If extracted with GWDatBrowser, they will have transparency by default.
  • If extracted with texmod, do not directly save them as .png files, as then they would be saved without transparency and with black background instead. Save them as .tga files instead, like this they will be saved with transparency. Then you can open those files with programs like Photoshop or Paint.NET, and re-save them (with transparency) as .png files. Then you can finally upload them.

Add the image to the appropriate category.
