[meta] Tileset clearing house

Postby JTN » Mon Sep 25, 2017 11:23 pm

I've created a wiki page to track selected art and unit requests that have been posted here and might be candidates for including in the standard distribution:

wiki/User:JTN/Tileset clearinghouse

The idea is to try to push to get some units in all the formats needed (as previously discussed here), so that we might one day be able to *gasp* add new units to standard rulesets.

(For instance, once we have a decent batch of new units in 2D form, we can contact Yd, who drew the Cimpletoon units, and see if they are interested in making 3D versions.)

Please continue to post art and discuss in this subforum; the wiki page is intended as my index to keep track of what we have here (since it's so easy to lose stuff in the forum threads).

For Alien ruleset stuff the (only) tileset that really matters is Alio.

Great idea!

Just a note, the Jet fighter and Mig-15 are probably meant to be the same entry...

Two ampcients PNGs existed: The GitHub project is apparently gone, but I have a copy and considered to create a 'morunits.png with ancient units not yet covered by Amplio(2) units; morunits spelling inspired by a Windows moricons.dll.

There are some usable (2D) Freecol + Wesnoth ships, and some might be nicer than the Ampcients ships if scaled down to Amplio(2) 64x64: The Freecol ships would fit into 96x96 by adding transparent pixels, the Wesnoth ships are all 72x72:

Edit 1: Removed hospital already noted on Tileset clearinghouse. Reconnaissance Balloon wanted by (XYZ) is also wanted by (variant2).
Edit 2: Variant2 apparently acquired its own delta2 tileset with missing units noted in the Modpack.

Note that the reason ampcients tileset was never taken to use for ancients tileset was that Daniel was not able to get permissions from all the authors to GPL the graphics. The zip-file seems still to be in the apolyton thread.

That's not good, at least there are enough ancient ships with known (free) licenses for a morunits.png. No GPL isn't necessarily a showstopper, some Freesounds are only Sampling+, and Alien-Music has only a permission for Freeciv.
