Here's a little tip for making icon sets, as me, 4j, and some others have used.

Whenever you get a picture of a siren, if it is better than what you already have in your set, use it to replace the icon.

For example, my original Thunderbolt 1000 icon was a slightly dark, slightly unsaturated image. When I went down to Frankfort KY, I went to the Juniper Hill golf course to check out their Thunderbolt since I was passing near it. When I got pictures, they turned out to be really vibrant and bright. I replaced the old icon with a new one I got, and it looks a lot nicer. Bright and vibrant icons make them easier to see on satellite maps with custom icons.

If you/anyone need(s) help with icon sets, I'd be very happy to help!!

I'd personally just stick to colored pins, as all pin icon sets I've ever seen used make the map run super slow and often crash unexpectedly. Editing them also becomes a huge problem. That's just me, though, and to each their own.
