The artist have finished the artwork for the newscaster, and the first icon (the news item that you see in top right corner). I was very pleased with how it looks, so I gave the artist the go-ahead for rest of the icons (21 more icons, all matching MoO 1's 22 news items). I was also provided with an animated gif to see how it looks in practice (The speaker part won't be as regular in-game, but it gives you an idea of what it looks like)
There's no text on the icon, unlike MoO 1. This is so that I can add text programmatically, and it can be translated into different languages without having to alter the artwork.
