Needed art assets for SuperTuxKart

Hi,

just wanted to share a few thoughts and ideas regarding the creation of SuperTuxKart art assets. I have created a few textures for SuperTuxKart in the past and would like to contribute a few pieces again after years of inactiveness. Back in the days it was quite easy to find something to improve but today the overall quality of the game's art is better than ever. So I think there can a few things be done to make it easier to find something that doesn't end up rejected because it is not needed/used.

List of the needed art assets: I know that such a list is hard to maintain and tends to be outdated but it gives a good idea of what is currently needed for the game. This list should contain SuperTuxKart specific items but also generic stuff like rocks, trees, boxes, ...

Generic art assets: The reason why I would include generic art in the list is that it is a good way to give newbies something to practice on. This includes the technical side of things as well as the general art style. It is also a nice area for smaler contributions as this assets consume probably less time to make.

SuperTuxKart specific art assets: Assets that are specific to the world of SuperTuxKart are harder to make not because the are necessarily technically more difficult but involve careful thinking about plausibility and consistency inside the SuperTuxKart world. I guess the style page (https://supertuxkart.net/Style) is already a good place to get an idea of the outline and connections between stuff.

Any thoughts?

Hmm, looking at your textures it seems that traffic_light.png (in the models folder) doesn't have a stated license.

What license was that released under?

Hmm... I am not sure. Can't remember it and didn't find any old post stating the license. If it is ok I think CC-BY-SA would be best.
