eXPerimental Terrain v2.6.01.00
eXPerimental Terrain v2.6.01.00.zip
(64.38 KiB) Downloaded 5 times

Has all the XU terrains, plus a couple I've not managed to make yet. Does not have most of the extra extras.
(Of note, I'm having problems getting the Bridge extras to work right: To require being on oceanic terrain AND next to land terrain. How might this be accomplished?)

Stubspace with GT stuff hasn't been done yet.

So, in practice this should be what Hexemplio is supposed to be?

Essentially. Though, keeping Hexemplio as the boxed release version and AmplioHexBig as development version/ModPack does sound like a good idea. There may be a few format and design disagreements you can work how you want in Hexemplio. Any comments or suggestions before I roll out 2.6.00 would be welcome, though. Still poking a few things here and there and seeing if there's any room for improvement. Still scratching my head about hex_side, though. What, really, does it even do?
Hmm, also, I noticed that both myself and amplio2 use blank tiles for the default city and 'wall'(is this city with wall or just a wall meant to be drawn over a city?). Shouldn't this actually point to an actual city (and wall, respectively) sprite just in case someone uses it in a ruleset or something?

On the Amplio page I claimed that the old cd.* tags (city defaults), the old ts.river_resources alias of ts.grassland_resources, and the t.unknown1 alias of mask.tile are unused, i.e., I could start (and play with) the gtk2 clients for 2.4 + 2.5 without these tags.

Try starting freeciv-2.6+ client with commandline option '--warnings' for showing deprecation warnings. It should tell if those tags are not read from the .tilespec file at all.
'ts.river_resources' sounds like old civ1-style (not special, but separate terrain type) river resource (not supported in a very long time).

Well, commenting them did not generate a freeciv-gtk2.rpt report, while commenting the ruins sprite crashed and received a report. I couldn't really read the thing, but seems clear-cut enough that the client doesn't load those sprites.

Speaking of reports, what happened to the stderr.txt that was generated in 2.5? I can't find it in either install directory or my AppData, is there a commandline that must be used to generate it in 2.6?

v2.6.00 up.
Almost wondering if I should just combine XU and GT together into Z completely. XU is getting rather large of late.
Likewise, I'm wondering if I should keep the compass inaccessible tileset option. The charcoal is vastly more visible than it once was.
Also note that 2.6.00 is slightly different from 2.6 (I know at least I forgot to comment out terrain1b.spec reference in 2.6 that was fixed in 2.6.00)

Cazfi, is the plan for Hexemplio to use the same format basically as it had before (ie using large-shields instead of the modified flags.spec for unit shields)? I've been thinking about condensing all of A6B down into just one tileset instead of basic, XU, GT, or Z, all just part of AmplioHexBig.

In that case, I'll start to post a Hexemplio beta separately in future 2.6 releases. I'll also use that format for backporting Hexemplio to 2.5 and 2.4. Best of course would be seeing your new hexemplio.tilespec for v2.6.00.

I've actually got 2.5.12 ready, just need to decide how I'm going to package it up.

It's part of freeciv proper. (That's why hexemplio was created in the first place - to have tileset like amplio2hexbig but with such a filesize that it's feasible to include in freeciv distribution).
