[Ryzom Forge] Meeting (27th of july)

4- Infographics group

4.1 Creation of a Ryzom Forge Infographics group in Asana

The Infographics group needs to be better structured, so  RF Infographics group will be created in Asana. 
Asana groups are free (as with no charge) untill 15 people in a group, but it will be enough for our actual needs. Nevertheless this group will be reserved to the Infographics team, because of this restriction.
To ask for an access, send an email to, who will invite you.  You can also provide your email on IRC or by IG mail.

The advange is that the Ryzom teams under NDA already use it, and it is possible to share a task between groups. So it's possible to follow a task with more than 15 people.
It will be able to better coordonate Infographics, Level Design, Dev, Event...  groups.
Asana sends emails notifications in case of adding or modifying a task (except if you prefer to desactivate the feature).
It is not necessary to create an account before, an invitation is possible with an Asana account or with an email.

Q: Is it 15 members per group? Or is it 15 members for all the groups combined?
A: 15 for each group.

Q: Can I join Asana despite my "linguistic disadvantages"? (I speak only German)
A: Yes of course! Internally I work with DE volunteers that speak only DE and I don't! We also have some FR that do not speak EN. Everybody succeed in working together, sometimes with google translation, often with the help of the others for translations. Each one is important and has got many interesting ideas, the language is not a problem. We are a multilanguage team.

4.2 Creation of the cities banners
Bannières matis :
Bannières fyros :
Bannières zoraïs :
Bannières trykers :
Remigra and Osquallo have worked a lot last two weeks, , congrats !
 event team will organise local and nationnal assemblies to choose a validate created banners
Q: Is there a description of possible usage of those banners?
A: Each town will have its banner floating in the wind, but you are free to propose other usages.

Q: About city banners, just to situate, where does come the initial will to create them please?
A: It comes from the will of Event Team to improve roleplay of cities by providing them their own identity. Having their own banner will help for it.

Q: i have ideas for a banner in Davae too, but cannot make it since i do not know which program to use, I might just hand paint it? I have a Mac.
A Lycimima: Yes you can draw it on paper and scan your idea and I will see what can I do with it.
I don't have a Mac so no idea wich program you can use. 
I think we should post the texture modele so everyone will have the right size for the texture.

Q: The textures and sizes of existing banners are readily available to us. Only if there are new objects, we need to know these variables.
A: Not everyone know where to look on the datas or maybe i have miss it on the forum?

Lycimima : For the usage, we can also replace banners of zorai and tryker cities by the new ones, in addition to the one on support. And more, seeing that use same materials for all countries because we cannot do better, I propose to redo version fitted to each country in addition to the banner itself. In a way to be completly free on the aspect too.

Q:  I didnt' understand, you talk about supports?
A: Yes, about the wooden part that hold the banner, instead of just making a texture using a generic existing model.

Q : How to mabe a new object spawn on Yubo server?
R: If someone would need to see how his banner looks in game and does not know how to do, he can send an email to with the infos attached, he'll do screens on Yubo.
Lycimima will write a little tutorial explaining how to test banners (and other projects later) on Yubo, how to make appear an object, give it the shape of another, etc.

Q : Is there an ark group on Asana? Or a Dev one? I think that it could be useful.
R : Each team under NDA has got its own group on Asana. But there is no RF ark neither dev group there for the moment.

4.3 Creation a female tryker leader armour

Ideas have been proposed here :
For the 3D model, beeing more complicated than a static item,weI'll have to make some tests if we'd like to change it (but light changes should be possible).

Q: We'd need to have an image of the current male armour to take inspiration of it.
R: Yes, posting images of male amor is a good idea.

Lycimima: As I try to rebirth projects that lacks of graphists or still blocked at modelisation step, I bent on Jen Laï stele.I did the corresponding .shape, i've just changed some details to write inscription and make textures in version winter/summer:
(Names where validated in assembly.)
I've got other small objects in progress to accompagny rites/missions, but I keep the surprise!
