Altered Icons:
Autoexplore - 'X' moved to the right side to uncover shield, despite being an advisor control, does not call other activities
Fortified - 'tower' trunk widened by 2 pixels and a second window spot added, cosmetic improvement and brings it in line with new fortifying icon
Airbase - monochromed to create contrast with new airstrip, similar to amplio

Unit Upkeep:
Full upkeep set added at bottom, including replacing existing ones

Replaced:
Activities:
Road - Yellow bordered mini activity (replacing 'R')
Airbase - Yellow bordered mini activity (replacing 'A')
Fortress - Yellow bordered mini activity (replacing 'F')
Connect - Yellow double arrow (replacing 'C')

New Icons:

layer1_match_with = "water"
layer2_match_type = "water"
layer2_match_with = "water"
layer2_sprite_type = "corner"
mine_sprite = "tx.oil_mine"

Bases:
Airstrip - single lane, original colored airbase
Outpost - shortened, gape-walled fortress
Strategic Resources:
Aluminum - color inverted and adjusted, horizontally flipped iron
Uranium - monochromed gold
Saltpeter - color inverted, horizontally and vertically flipped, placement adjusted coal

Raised this as patch #5855.

Raised patch #5856 to import new Trident graphics (thanks!)

Another new version of trident tiles.png, packaged as 'trident2', features Lake and Ice Shelf sprites.
To change completely to Trident, takes a couple quick text edits(name of trident2.tilespec, and one reference each in trident2.tilespec and tiles.spec) and moving the files to the trident directory.

Contains: wrote:/data/
trident2.tilespec
/data/trident2/
tiles.png
tiles.spec

-Reorganized the whole file, to preserve my sanity while spec editing
-Increased Saturation of Ocean-Coast tiles by 50%, to contrast fogged tiles better with Ocean-Floor unfogged tiles
-Added Lake, with -30 Hue from Ocean-Coast tiles
-Flatted oceanic terrain's layers 0 and 1 into layer 0
-Added Ice Shelf sprites onto layer 1
--Removed layer0 type 'arctic'
--Added layer1 type 'arctic'
--Changed Arctic layer0 type to 'water'
--Changed Arctic layer1 type to 'arctic'
--Changed all non-Arctic layer1 type to 'water' (AKA not-arctic)
-Removed River-Grassland terrain
-Removed Duplicate Grassland tiles
--Removed Grassland layer0 match_with
-Readded The Square Cow's Inaccessible tile, though the black-water tiles are the version called by tilespec(Sorry, used a fresh beta2 image originally)

Even if you don't want to use version control to get current development versions, you may want to take the gfx files you are editing via the web-interface: http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/freeciv/


Ah, yes, thank you. I will try to remember review them before I post edits up.

It's certainly a terrible habit (caused by solo modding predominantly), and exacerbated by doing most of my modding while lacking internet service. Hours of work, hundreds of edits, and can't even remember to take a minute to check the latest updates :/

Raised patch #5877 for this.

I had to fix a few things about tiles.spec:
  • Fix swapped stack/attention
  • Fix new strategic resources (coords were wrong)
  • Remove duplicate t.l1.arctic1

Anyone editing Amplio2/Amplio/Isotrident tiles.png in the next few days should be aware of the pending edits in bug #23332.

Oops, we don't seem to have mentioned lack of graphics for civ2civ3 "Internet" wonder here (patch #5806; it was mentioned in the "Freeciv-2.5 art status" thread).

I've put in some placeholder graphics, which will do for 2.5.0 if no-one thinks of anything better.

I like the look of it. The colour isn't being used for anything either right now, which will help make it noticeable .
