Generally, you make them with programs like GIMP, or Photoshop.

If you want some pre-made icons, vjeko1701 made quite a few, including some Clone Wars ones. If you're looking to make you're own, then yeah, what Kalo said, although, based on what I've heard, I don't think GIMP makes alpha channels.

Or you can just contact someone who has already made the icons and ask for permission to use them. Making them yourself is probably easier though.

Sith - yes it does, I've used GIMP to make all of my icons.

danget, i had a full huge tutorial for making icons...

basically, open the model in the .alo viewer, change the background to purple or something, take a screenshot, paste it into paint, select a somewhat square section aroud the ship or unit, copy this, close paint, open GIMP, new file with alpha channel instead of white background, make it 1000X1000 pixels for now

paste in your chunk from paint, use select contiguous regions tool to select and [delete] the purple/whatever (set the settings so it gets ALL of the purple/whatever)

now, size your pasted part with the scale tool to take up the whole 1000X1000 area, then anchor it to the base layer, then merge it. then you go to the image panel and scale the whole image to be 50X50 pixels...

save as a .tga file, use th4e mtd editor to add it to the MTD, and then to the unit. done and done :p
