Hey Nick,

Overall it looks good. The only comment I have is that I liked the high mountains in the previous edition. The last one was too white. The hvy forests looked better. I am looking forward to seeing this one released. If you decide to release the mod as is, you may want to allow us to use the previous high mountains as an option. Thanks for your hard work.

I agree with cbelva, the high mountains looked better in the previous edition. The forests are getting better but I still think they can be improved. But all in all it looks quite amazing - really looking forward to it getting released.

I really like the plains and forests, but the hills and mountains somehow look "blurry" and I think the previous version was also a bit better.

I went back and looked at the two versions again. I definitely like the previous versions of the mountains better. I agree with Erik, in the newer version, the mountains/hills look blurry. I felt the mountains/hills in the earlier version were near perfect.

Beautiful work! I love this game and how it can be customized in many ways. It is a true wargame construction kit.

Hey Nick,

I read your comment on the bug thread. I am curious as to why you were getting that bug. In substituting sprikes I had no problems. It was trying to add additional sprikes that I was getting the bug. Are you adding new terrain sprites with your mod? I am working on a new scenario and the bug has ground me to a halt. Hopefully we will get the 1.02 beta tomorrow. Looking forward to your mod.

Hey Cbelva, I have no problems for creating new landscape with new sprite, but, if i want to add additional sprite in same "tileset" i have the bug.....for example, if i want to add some additional sprite in a urban tileset, the first sprite work fine, but, for all the other sprites, i have the bug.....
I am also blocked in my work....Yes, i hope this patch will Solve the problem....

Hi Nick69, a really awesome work, I'm curious to see how you will model heavy forest vs. light forest and swamp.
Hope your mod will be posted soon and many thanks for it.

@nick,

looks great. amazing job. i should check the forums first for graphical artists for next game.

for the towns i would make them stand out more color wise and if possible let them also influence the edges of neighbouring hexes so they are better visible if units are on top.

kind regards,
vic

Tanks for your advice, Vic, I am not a really a professional graphic designer, I am rather specializing in tabletop wargames ....
I also planned to redo the entire user interface .... in the near future ...
For the city and town, i thought somewhat darker Sprite ...
Sorry for my english, i am french....

well you can have two sprites for any landscape sprite. One which is drawn before any neighbouring hex influences are painted on the hex, and one which is drawn after. If you do a top down look i think it would be smart to have a fully transparent graphic as the second sprite for towns.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

tanks Vic, I certainly have a lot of questions to ask ....
In fact, a lot of my graphics come from a game project that I had going on, but abandoned for lack of time ....

no the rivers are always drawn last.

but if you make sure the land always goes to the corners of the hex then the rivers will fit right?

kind regards,
vic

Nick,
Very nice job, but why do you want to make a masterfile ?? What we need is a zipped file with all the png to replace all those in graphics/default/plain, lightforest etc... dirs !
