And for winter time...

There are no Mud Forest graphics in the game, so during Mud seasons all forests will remain green.

There are Mud Woods graphics and I have modded them.

Better Port graphic and more subtle shallow to deep water transition, Normal Zoom, for upcoming version 1.1.

A flatter, even more board game look for Zoom 3. I think this is the way forward.

Incorporated Krupp's lighter hex sides. Really makes a big difference.

The Max Zoom level is almost done. I should complete it tonight.

Here are the three zoom levels to show the direction I am taking.

Any suggestions for changes welcome as I go back to work in the morning, so things will slow down after today.

it might be nice if the three river sizes were different shades of dark... you know kinda the way you did the coastal waters but not so extreme. it sure is hard to tell the river classifications apart.. if you dont want to do this.. i may do it myself later

Can you do this as an optional add-on? That would be cool.

Great work on the old boardgame style terain graphics. Very interesting to see them progress and change. Adding the new hex outline graphics has definitely improved things. I'm not too keen on the the Forest graphics as the green is too fluorescent and too bright compared to the rest of the tiles. The original graphics may be better?

By the way it looks like Maikop is missing its "P" on the map?

Cheers Ian.

I'll look at maybe toning down the Forest a bit - I do agree. However, I want to stay as true as possible to the Board Game paradigm and avoid using too many of the original graphics.

The map text isn't accessible to a modder, so I can't fix the missing 'P' or add any place names.

Mark

I have reverted to the original forest graphics with the exception of Max Zoom Out, which remains green for contrast.

I will upload Version 1.3 of both the TAN and GREEN versions of the Mod shortly.

woods: maybe there should be more of the hex's basic background colour and trees like abstracted symbols instead of naturalistic drawings. like your swamps?

Yes I tried that with trees like Fire in the East - I guess that's what you are thinking about (see image). Swamps are easy - just straight lines, but making nice looking tree shapes on the PC was hard and I had too many other tasks.

We can adjust this once the big jobs are completed, but I actually like the DC trees.

I can make an optional tree mod that you can activate in JSGME...

I Googled 'Steppe Hex Graphic' and hit number 4 was my Mod thread LOL. Not encouraging if you are looking for inspiration!

Scattered small farms to break up the monotony further. Should I make these standard or ALT graphics in the Mod?

Traditional board game forests. Which is better?

Personally, I like this look, but we have to lose the farms because they clash with the transparent forests.

This is how it ended up at the three zoom levels.

I decided to make this my default set as it is closer to a board game look. Also, the simpler graphics seem to make the game load faster.

I aim to please! I am back at work in the morning, so I will have less time to work on this.

I do have things left to fix (and I found and fixed a big winter/mud graphics problem in the mountain hexes) so I am uploading Version 2.0 now in a more user friendly download and install format - just one file to download, numbered install file sequence.
