The 'Info' icon should be in a different shape as the '?' icon i think. Or at least a different color.

Users should be conditionable to recognise a blue balloon with a white glyph to be an "info" icon and a white balloon with a blue glyph to be a "question" icon. Good idea dreams.
It compiles, let's ship it!

Is this what you're getting at, or something more like the white info balloon suggestion (no glass)?

Really good work. I think the message-box icons are now done - again great work! How about some more CD/DVD-icons? More disk icons would be CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW; DVD, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM; and one without any descriptions. The problem is, that these descriptions need to be readable at very low resolutions, look like it was solved in Windows XP.

The CD/DVD icons... I already made the blank, CD, and DVD ones, I don't really know if specifics (CD-R, etc.) are necessary, but if mf wants, I guess I could put labels like there is in XP. As far as I can think, these icons would only be used in My Computer, and since that folder is almost always above 16px, I don't think it is so important to make the exact format of the disk visible so small (the user should know this by looking at the disk itself, before putting it in.

And I guess I'll put my message box icons into unofficial the "Icon Set" wiki, if there are no objections?

I also think the message box icons are done. I like the last additions Artguy made.

For people who don't know which icon to recreate next, here is a screenshot. If you want to create a complete new icon pack for ReactOS, at least all these icons should be redone.

(I love the current regedit.exe icon)

The "Regional Options"-icon is a must-stay, because I am German ;)

You're contradicting yourself here, the world would mean everyone, any other flag would be unfair, either German or European or whatever... Europe is not he world.

Also the United Nations are not the world. Vatican City is a sovereign and general accepted state but not member of the UN. How about a globe or a bunch of anonymos flags?

I think it's about time for me to tune out of this thread again, arguing about which flag is the most neutral is beyond silly. Just pick one or two random flags, problem solved. Also, can someone please just ban forart? Between being a nuisance to other projects and promoting SharpE, I've never read anything constructive from the guy.

Edit: sorry, disregard the part about SharpE, that's patchworks. I keep mixing the two up.

Why not a globe for the regional options icon? I don't mean earth itself, but a globe e.g. for desktops like here:

However, then this icon must be cleary distinguishable from the network options icon.
