I find the grey text in the current ones difficult to read.  I personally would rather the text be kept readable (at all percentages).

That's how I'd do it, proper design in contrast. Preview:

No offense, but I hate them without the dark background and I also disapprove of how they go from white to darker, when I think it should be from dark to lighter as it gets higher.

Not having the background does look like an improvement, but I don't like the idea of the bar/numbers getting lighter or darker. I'd prefer it to simply have a slight hue shift. I'd also replace Done! with 100%

I don't know about taking out the Done!...
Without it, it just doesn't seem complete. In this context, 100% seems anticlimactic.

Everyone else is having a go so I thought I'd join in. I've done three options for 100%, but I think the flashing one could get annoying. Having said that how many project see it all the way to 100%?

I dunno, the bars lost that subtle little highlight on them that was working really nice after you edited them. I'm not sure if this last iteration is an improvement...

I think the highlight is too distracting and the contrast is too high near the center but hardly there on the lower or higher bars. Also the point of my edit was just to make earlier bars visible and yet Core Xii's edit has reverted back to the 10% bar being almost invisible grrah. Screamy

I dislike the above red-green, maybe because the gradient isn't smooth enough Shrug?

Edit: changed the gradient slightly (with emphasis on the green as an 80% complete game should be playable and be a decent game, last 20% is mostly content and little additional features etc, right?), and did a single colour version:

edit: grah, graphicsgale handles transparency stupidly, when your editing transparency isn't even apparent until you see the final image. You'll just have to live with the transparent sections.

These ones are too fruity. I prefer the monochromatic ones Sad I feel like we reached the zenith with:



I added some shiny stuff. Too much?

This. Hand Clap

...and after that we had too many cooks in the kitchen :/ But I guess Derek will have the final word.

That does something strange to my eyes where it makes the leftmost point seem brighter than the white background.

Quote from: Arachne's edit of Phubans's version

As far as the bars go, this is my favorite so far. I think something different should be done with the final icon, but everything else looks great... and, honestly, I think things have gone downhill from there; I don't really like anything else that's been posted since then.

All that said, however, I also really like the salmon ones that are already up.

Had another try:

"Done" needs to be edited (haven't changed it since last time, someone else can have a go at that, heh), the bars 3d effect is in opposition to the "done" 3d effect, so it's kind of weird.

100% concurrence. The bars without backgrounds look shitty and feel like they're just floating around. But what do I know? I just get paid to design UI elements for a living  Shrug

I really like this version, it looks (to me) a lot better than the more blocky ones. However I really don't like the "done" one, it looks like it should have a similar, or the same font as the others, and shouldn't really have that blue border.

EDIT:
Looking at the current ones however (the pink ones) I think they're really nice!

Personally, I'd say even just taking the current set and making them blue would be a nice change. The salmon color confuses my eyes.

I think it's pretty. ^_^
The blue ones are good, too, though.

Well whatever, you bring up a good point about the contrast being too low, but it looks fine on my monitor (keep in mind monitor brightness varies)... I just think it looks like shit without the background. Either add a background to yours or up the contrast on mine. It just seems like you're trying to re-invent the wheel for the sake of having ownership and not really concerned with actually improving the design, just making it different.
