The idea is similar to Kazuki's first attempt, but more elborate. It was actually my first idea, but I chose to make it second because I hate using the MapMaker.
If you guys think I should add in some Soldats, I'll be glad to do it. It'll be fun considering it's an actual map.

Filler image(For All)-
Hahaha! Man! I was actually thinking of doing something almost exactly like this, except I would write the word SOLDAT using default sceneries, such as trees and boxes. I'd also put a flag or two in there for the hell of it. I could still do it, but it wouldn't be original. Anyway, I think this is lacking something. =| Maybe you should work on it some more. Maybe work the map into the background of the forums or give it a filler or something. Dunno, it just seems empty on the test page.
hmm i like it exept from "forum" the font dosent fit in
whoa....dude....that looks so cool i like how it is made form a soldat map
I was gonna add in some Soldats, but I thought they'd clutter it up too much, so instead, I "Forumized" it.
Test Logo Page
Edit:Also, do you think I should tone down the forum icons? Sometimes I think they stand out too much.
Haha, that's clever. Yeah, I agree with you, they stand out a lot. If it were me in your position, I would embed them in the rocks like I did in my first logo and then put those forum icons over the embedded versions and make them about 50% transparent. It would look pretty good, methinks.
Ooh, I think I got it, thanks for the help Kaz!
Voila, the toned down, slightly smaller file sized, Soldaten, Forumized, Logo!
Yet Another Test Page
I think for tonight I'm going to stop nitpicking it.
Ah, that looks much better. Well done. :)
Sorry, but I don't like the thread icons :-/ It'd be better if they actually were soldaten, IMO :-P I liked the sun in the first one (why was that removed?).
Keron, the sun was removed because it would distort the color of the background, which wouldn't look good as a logo. The sun was OK in the first one because he put the logo itself in its own border and slipped it into the official "logo" entry, which had his logo surrounded by the forums background.
Tone down the forum icons a bit more.
the "forum" need more perspective, it's a bit wierd.
I prefer the old one you've made.
