No I haven't made one for thegtaplace yet. No. Today I made a brand new layout for one of my other sites. Take a look at AlanWAKE.co.uk.

What do you guys think of it?

If I put this on The GTA Place, obviously with different colours for each GTA section, and different GTA images in the header of each section.
You think it would look great? Or not?

I think it definitely would, but I also need your opinions too, so please post your comments.

Thanks guys ;)

Yeah, I like the color scheme a lot, but make the text slightly bigger if you do decide to use it.

Well if you don't know about Alan Wake, go ahead and look round the site, read the About page specifically, should tell you everything you need to know.

So basically it's agreed it's a nice layout but we just need bigger text?
Just for the content though? because I think the small text is good for the menu.

I think the text sizes are ok. If you have bigger text for the content then it will look too big and the menu text looks good that way.

Yeah although people are going more and more higher resolution with the constent drop of LCS screens.... I also think that the text for content pages should be.......

oh I just realised you did change it. Yeah that looks great!

Yeah! I agree. The layout here is getting kinda old (no offense). But are you going to change the colour themes too? I support you to do so, actually.

But yeah, go for it. But dont forget to back it up, okay!

Yeah it is getting old, that's the reason I'm redesigning all my websites to make them look more modern, and plus each section is looking like San Andreas :/

Each game's section will have it's own colour scheme, however, on each page in the right menu there will be a dropdown box, where you can choose to override the default section theme with whatever theme you like the most.

Themes will be: Default | GTA4 | LCS | San Andreas | Vice City | GTA3 | Classics (including GTA Advance)

I'm wondering what colours to use as default though, whether just stick with the grey? SA will be similar colours to the current layout, VC will be pink, GTA3 will be red/black, or perhaps LCS like that, Classics I was actually gonna use the grey for..

Hmm, if you have suggestions of colour schemes for a particular layout please post them here.

For the default; maybe a subtle blue? Or a really light brown? Or a light brown aswell as a light grey?

Yes, I like cool colors as a default, but each game should have its own color scheme. Maybe the orange/brown for SA, the pink and light blue for VC, the black/red for GTA3, and the yellow/dark blue of LCS.

I'm designing the logos right now, just wondering about the GTA characters, shall I use pictures of them from screenshots, or shall I use the cartoonish images or them from various artworks?

A mixture? Maybe a screenshot as the background, cartoons in the foreground and the text on top of it all.

I like them, but i think theres too many different images in there, too many different colours.

In both of them?

Anyway here's the GTA3 one, I don't think there's too many colours in this one, I kinda captured the dark feeling of the game...

I like that one. And yes i think you should crop the San Andreas one, but the one for Vice City is good.
