    Hey all!
    Yesterday, I wrote an announcement regarding the surprise reveal of what was then going to be the new icon for Mine-imator going forward, and how the negative reception of it made me reconsider this design choice.
    I took this opportunity to show you a different take on the icon, and judging by the overwhelmingly positive reactions, I think it's fair to say that we've got a winner on our hands! After a few minor tweaks and touch ups, I believe it's ready, waiting to be used once Mine-imator 1.3 launches.
    But wait, what about Modelbench? Well, obviously I couldn't leave its icon untouched! After all, the goal of the rebrand is to unify both apps into one identity, so it's only natural to give it a fancy new icon as well! There was one challenge to overcome. What could we put in that colorful hexagon? Putting a bunch of cubes seemed like an obvious answer, but it just didn't look quite right... The Mine-imator icon had a 3D, Minecraft styled item inside that hexagon, so... Modelbench would have to follow that template, or else it just wouldn't work. But what kind of item should it be? What object is best suited to illustrate the modeling process?
    What about a hammer? This was an idea from Nimi, that he had while we brainstormed. It could work, you can build stuff with one of those. The question was now, "what should it look like?". His proposal was a blacksmith's hammer, but I felt like it didn't fit the program's name too well. After all, it's called Modelbench, not Modelforge... (that would've been a neat name, though!) So, in the end, we settled on the good old claw hammer. And after a bit of quick rigging and tracing...

    Here they are! The Mine-imator family now has its own set of icons! I hope you'll like it just as much as the one I've shown yesterday, and once again, please share any feedback you might have!
    See you around!

    Alright, I think it's best to just put all my thoughts in one place to make things clearer.
    I didn't really expect that revealing the new icon in a joke post would cause such a reaction. I initially dismissed it because, to be honest, the icon is a low priority for me, as there's a lot of stuff that still needs to be worked on to get the upcoming update ready, which is also why I wasn't very open to feedback, as I would much prefer to focus on getting feedback about the UI. I realize that was the wrong approach to the issue, hence why I'm writing this.
    Another reason is that the branding is a little different to how I planned it going forward. While currently, the icon and logo are sort of stuck together, I decided to separate it all out into three distinct bits: logo, icon, and mascots. I don't plan on changing that, they will remain separate.
    What is going to change is the icon itself. A recurring bit of criticism about the logo is that it doesn't feel related to Minecraft anymore. When I designed it, I just focused on making it readable. I tried to make it belong with the rest of the branding using evocative colors and shapes, but in the end, it appears that it lost too much character and ended up less appealing. As we speak, I'm currently working on a first iteration for a new design, which will hopefully tie-in with the program and the game it's based on:

    This new design is rather popular with the Mine-imator staff, and I hope it will be for the rest of you too. If there are any ideas or improvements you'd like to share, feel free to.
    Lastly, I'd like to apologize for my unprofessional and rude attitude. The rocky launch of Modelbench made it clear that transparency was important when it came to wanting to change how people use your program, but I hadn't realized that the icon would've been part of that too. I'll be sure to learn from that mistake and I hope we can move forward and work together in this next big step in the history of Mine-imator.
    Take care, y'all. ✌️

    saw this on a post, is it a new logo or just an export icon?. if it's a new logo, it really wouldn't fit as a logo at all. it doesn't say "minecraft animation software". there's a similar issue with modelbench's logo, it doesn't even show anything related to modeling or minecraft. they're also just not appealing at all.

    New Mine-Imator UI Design Concept. 
    So I think with this Design, All Problem will be fixed. Design process took me almost 6+ Hours,And Designed with Paint.net. 
    so let's have a look at my New Design. In this design I removed a few Features, And UI,Because Why? well last few weeks ago I make a Design of Mine-Imator UI which is Just a concept what it would look like if MI In 2030. Yes you will noticed 2030 Numbers If you read All my text on my last few weeks status update.
    Start Menu UI Concepts:

    Create New Project's UI Concepts:

    Difficulty Mode UI Concepts:

    Mine-Imator Interface UI Concepts:

    Explanations:
    OK So To make it clear I want to explain it! ok so The UI I'm gonna Explain is The Interface, or Main Interface. Let's Start From Tab Features. 
    Yes Tab Features will make a Viewport Screen a little bit smaller than before, but Trust me For Advanced Animators, Maybe this will help them 89% Time Saving. And the reason why I Add this Tab Feature Concept is because Just to Simplify a Main Viewport Tab, I mean If We wanna set a lighting for example, We don't need to do it on our main tab. And of course We can Add new Tab That we can customize On Our Own Mood. 
    Camera Number: The reason I add this feature concept is because to Reduced Of using multiple times of clicking the Second screen options if we just want to see the obj, or RIG by different Angle. I hope you can Understand this If you're Advanced Animators. And We can select What Camera view we want to place into The main screen. 
    Empty Boxes:See that Empty Box Right On the Upper Tab? Yes I see it, then why the hell you Add this empty boxes? what does that benefit? You May Ask. Well The reason I Add This Is Because When you working on a complex projects, or RIG I sure 100% All of you will be experiencing When ya'll Done of Rigging, then Want to deselect All objects, But there's no Sky to click on. so From here you already understand what I mean. To Deselect All Objects. That is the function of this Empty Boxes. 
    Timeline Assets Tab: Assets Tab to reduced Of Being go outside Mine-Imator Software just to import a RIG. In this Assets Tab, You can just simply Add Your RIG, And then The RIG Will be here as long as you want. if the program doesn't crash I mean.
    Keyframe Line:Reason is to Highlights which keyframe that Are Changed, and which not. so This thing is when the First keyframe have a Position in Y Axis=90,5,And the Second Have different Y Axis Number, Y=198,3. The Keyframe Will have the Line which is Highlighted If the Keyframe Had a different Numbers of Settings. hope ya'll Understand this. 
    And Finally For the Right Hand Side Tab We Have Vertical Tab Features Concepts. Reason is to simplify Animators when They want to click different settings. And This Will help People Save their 3 Seconds Time on their life, Because It have Vertical Tab So This Vertical Tab Will have much space to place on because It's Vertical. 
    OK So What do You Guys Think About My Design? Critiques, Suggestions, And etc can be leaved In  the comments section down below.  And Like Always. STAY CREATIVE!

    Man, I would hate to have to learn English.I mean, I did. But if I didn't already speak it, it would really suck to learn.
    Just look at this: through, though, cough, laugh, tough. They're pronounced throo, tho, coff, laff, tuff. 
    Whoever decided the spelling for these words was bonkers.
    And while I'm at it, ya know what else is bonkers? The Imperial(or English) measurement system. 
    12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, 5280 feet in a mile. Seriously, who came up with these numbers!?
    And why does the US still use this? Everyone else uses the Metric System, because it's infinitely superior. Everything is based on 10. A nice, even 10.
