From: Melbourne, Australia
actually I'm working on 2 versions.
a black and white gray scale mod. (a nostalgic tactics II tribute) and a coloured version based on a strategy and tactics magazine game called 'cobra' which I played to death as a teen. (I've taken the map and scanned the colour palette directly), although I'm grabbing .png ideas from games I currently own.
I wanted a retrograde old style map, and I realise it wont be everyone's 'cup of tea'. I'll leave really amazing mods up to the pros like GJK and JMass.
@Uxbridge, I fretted for a while about taking info off the counters, (and could be convinced to put it back on), but given all the information is repeated in the GUI, I felt the counter information was a little redundant.
...and finally to bleck. could you tell me how to get reasonably good black counter text, or I fear we will all have unit mods with yellow text and black drop shadow! I've tried but the text is not too sharp.
keep the feedback rolling in.
