Set Sail/Disable Ship (Buoy) Discussion

Is the 3rd object in the Set Sail/Disable Ship(Buoy) a white corrugated cutout on which a yellow fan is drawn, or is it a yellow, fan-shaped cutout?

Disable Ship

We were also unsure of whether it is a cutout or a white rectangle with a drawing. In either case, we feel it is important for the object to be three dimensional (like last years) and not a single flat piece of corrugated cuotut as this would be hard to manipulate and hard to detect if it rotates the wrong way.

Cutout

I agree that it would be hard to maniputae the object if it rotates.  And from my side, trying to make 3D versions of objects would get difficult...

 

How about a cut out in the image (for example, the circular hub of the propeller), that you can use to manipulate the target?

propeller

Currently, it could be either.  Suggestions?

Cutout (Propeller)

We are not very sure about what do you mean by a "cutout to manipulate the target", are you referring to a hole then? (near the central hub in the propellor)
In any case, even we feel it would be better to have a 3D object, or if it is possible to keep the 2D object always facing front (avoiding any unwanted rotations making the detection difficult), that too will be okay.

Cutout

Yeah, I mean a hole in the center where the hub of the proeller would be. 

I would also use a line on each side of the 2D object to keep it facing "front".

 

However, there's internal talk of changing this a bit (It would be a 3D object).  I'm trying to get this finalized as quickly as possible.
