we think about introducing a small black meditation actor,
"ac_pearl_black" in new-API-speak. The main problem here is,
that its image collides with the current image for the
extralife item. Add to the problem that the black extralife
item is meant for marbles and pearls of *both* colors, and
we come to the conclusion, that the traditional image of
the extralife item should be replaced. Any suggestions?
It should still be recognizable as an extra life ...

Finally we did generate 4 candidate images for the extralife item. All use the same yellow base with some pattern on top. This yellow base is chosen for a maximum contrast to the different floors while still matching the general color scheme.

As there is no common, worldwide known symbol of extralife we did choose four symbols of positive, life and happyness. The resulting images have slight 3D effects like other items. But besides the plus sign they are not rotational symmetric and miss the explicit 3D shapes of actors.

I uploaded a screenshot with all candidates:


Please tell us your favorite. Which images would you easily identify as extralifes. Which images do you like to see often in your item inventory. Please order the symbols in your favorite list and let us know.
