GriffonSpade this is a nice pack of hills. A week ago I was thinking how it could be cool to have dry hills, something like hills in persia, arabia etc. and your set is the answer. The snowy/icy hills also look cool.
Did you do some in game tests to see how it blends with other terrain types?

Not with amplio unfortunately, no. They look pretty good on a6b, and I used the same process on them. Blending with non-hill/mountain terrains shouldn't have any problems at all, and the only thing that is somewhat out of place is a clear delineation of hill types where they meet, but that's somewhat unavoidable.

Updated, created an amplio2 tileset addon. Uses an extra file directory and its own tilespec in addition to referencing many original amplio2 files.

Updated, and added some new features, including the extra units I did some time back directly into it, as an optional tilespec. Also included an updated experimentalterrain ruleset.
