This mod darkens the Super River and Suez Canal graphics to make it differ clearly from the normal river & canal terrain. Super River and Suez Canal are usually a major obstacle unless special ferry/bridge units provide enough Major Ferry capacity so that units can cross them. Currently the graphics are hard to differ from the normal river & canal and so I made this darker version, now it should be easy to distinguish them on every zoom level.

For any feedback please post here or PM.

Here the area around Antwerpen from the "Nach Frankreich" scenario.
There you see the Schelde major river and the Dyle minor river in comparison, also the Albert suez canal and hexes with minor canal that simulate the terrain there.

There's also the Blue Water mod which is a major improvement on the default:

Thanks Shadrach,

Trying to find / place all the graphic mods in one spot would be helpful, I have searched through out the forum but feel like I am missing something.

The cool thing about the new version is you can drop the file sin the my doc folder and try them out and delete them if you don't like em.

Blue Water mod was closest to what I had searched but the difference between the major/minor river and suez canal/canal is just to slight, you can overlook it pretty easy. That is why I mod my mod, not so pretty but just on the practical side of things.
That is also why I use other stuff found here or that came with the game like yellow railroads, they just stand out enough that you get a clue of the rail network even on higher zoom levels.
