Sextant 2.6

Postby GriffonSpade » Tue Sep 12, 2017 4:46 pm

Sextant Tileset v2.6.01:
60x60 square overhead tileset

Tools Used:
Notepad++
Paint.net

Inspired by Big Trident, but with rather more care than simply scaling everything up.
(Amplio units are sadly just a bit too wide or off-center in some cases, necessitating a custom units image)

Basic tileset:
Sextant v2.6.01.zip
(562.07 KiB) Downloaded 8 times

Expanded tileset (requires basic tileset to function):
SextantXU v2.6.01.zip
(203.57 KiB) Downloaded 9 times

Good, now also covered on the Wiki: sextant. Some stuff including Delta2 is still AWOL, and variant2 is at best a stub. :(
