This one is a 470×470 version, instead of the 128×128 we currently have. It looks to be the higher-res version available and the original resolution, do someone has the original source for this file?

So, after having investigated why I found higher resolution icons for our own game on some random brasilian web site and repositories by reverse-googling our own 128×128 icon, I found this 470×470 icon in our own old 0.6.0 linux installer on sourceforge:

unvanquished icon

This looks to be the mother of all our icons.

How did we lost it?

In anyway, why 470×470?

So I imported the 470×470 icon, I also included 256/128/64 derivations. Those are known to look good, I compared with various scaling algorithms in GIMP and either I was not able to get better, either the better I got looked as good.

A 470×470 icon resolution may looks weird, but my own Ubuntu distro has a 480×480 filezilla icon and 42×42 imagemagick icon, and there is some other weird occurrence like an app with 20x20 icon. So non-multiple-of-two icons look to be uncommon but correctly supported, so we don't have to worry about a 470×470 icon.

They were all recompressed and bruteforced using various png optimizers then zopfli zlib algorithm.

Then it would be hard to do better icons.

Note that we may update our .ico and .icns files with higher res alternatives, and also redo our updater .ico file that is very low res.
