JTN, thanks for clarification.
If I understand correctly (judging from existing pictures), there is no need of special palettes? RGB + alpha channel is OK?

Hey, sure. I owe those people a personal thanks anyways, after years of enjoying their work. I'm reading through the GPL lingo to figure what exactly it is to which they would need to agree. Reading through, it's interesting that they explicitly clarify that non-GPL artwork is totally fine in a GPL software package (as dunnoob mentions above). I wonder if Wesnoth is completely GPL, or if there are separate licenses for artwork/music/etc.

That's correct.

If talking about cimpleton graphics and licence stuff: is it possible to use screenshots of rendered model, downloaded from site with 3d models and royality free licence, and be comply with GPL licence?

Another remarks: maybe all these cimpletoon renders should be skewed for about 5..15 deg azimuthally, instead of 0, 45, 90 etc, let say 10, 55, 100 etc.
Currently it is hard to recognize, if a man standing back is an archer, warrior, or knight or caravan, etc.

It depends on the license offered to you by the website (or content creator in general).

I think I'll need something like this to render XYZ's Cimpletoon contributions; we have no pipeline, automated or manual, for this;


Let me know when this is again on the agenda. I made some changes to some units after I submitted them. No worries they are all good but if you have more time you can do always better.
Also, since the longship is on board I proposed some changes that would require some changes to the existing trireme to make look all 3 graphic similar. Same procedure I proposed for trident. In other words blanc sails for trireme, red/white stripes for longship, blue/white stripes for quinquireme and a hanseatic cross for cog on the sails (see attachment).
Also attached the longship I found with a CC0 licence.

Not sure where to post it, but I was tired finding pollution, it is hard to spot even on ordinary tile, and almost not possible when unit or town is sitting on it.
I have no idea how to fix it for overhead tiles, but for isometric one, for example amplio2, I edited it adding flames and smoke:

Now it is easy to spot, even if whole tile is covered by other sprites, smoke sticks out, here are 3 examples:

Oh, I like that. I've grabbed it for Amplio2/Cimpletoon (hrm #765046) and suggested it for Hexemplio/Toonhex. (It doesn't fit as-is in the grid of any of the other iso tilesets such as Isotrident.)

Here is version for isotrident:

Things were even worse in isotrident, which is very "pixelised", and these small rubbish were hard to spot, now this blurry smoke and fire are easier to locate, although not quite match overall style, but it is just a method to distinguish something: make it different ;)
