It's Aliiiiiiive!!!!

I joined another LongTurn game, and so had ample opportunity to stare at my tiles and wonder how they could be improved.
Then I looked at the the Tech Tree and realized that there were some new units added WITHOUT ANY GRAPHICS!!!
For starters, the Caravel was given a "Flagship" variant (one per nation) the "Square Rigged Caravel". I'd previously created a unique graphic for the Longboat, so why not this one too?
Behold my glory!

Can you tell which one is the Caravel, and which one is the Square-Rigged Caravel?
(Trick question, because the default Trident graphic for caravels depicts a Sloop. That's also on my list, one of these days...)

I also fiddled around a bit with the Oil Rig graphic for the desert mines, improving its distinction and contrast against both Oil, Desert, and Oasis.

Not perfect in all situations, but improved.

I've attached the latest version of RoundSquare with these changes, and also the "Square Rigged Caravel" graphic, for those who would desire it.

But instead, he made his own tileset variants, RoundSquare and Sextant-enHANSed, and refuses to play on anything else. Check them out!

Glad you are!

Sorry, but the credit here goes to me... ;)

The Sloop being a Caravel always bugged me. Nice work on the Square-Rigged Caravel!

Bring us more trident units! There is basically no contributor on that front.

Oh shoot! How could I have forgotten that? All I did was some touch-ups to improve contrast. It's been so long since I looked at these, and I saw the image in my editing folder...

Can you forgive me? What about if I offer the improved Flagship graphic as recompense?

Worked more on ships.
-Added a graphic for the Barge, from a slightly modified "Paddle Steamer" graphic from XYZ's extended Trident set.
-Refined the Flagship Frigate graphic.
-Added a new ship graphic for the "Square Rigged Caravel". Modified from a graphic in XYZ's extended Trident set. Technically this is a "Nau", not any kind of Caravel.
-Older smaller Square Rigged Caravel is now the new "Caravel".

Here is a big image of all the new ships:

Update!!!!!!

I have updated the RoundSquare tileset to work with Freeciv version 2.6!

Also included:
- Minor adjustments to the "Un-workable tiles" graphic to cities.
Image

- Tweaked my beautiful Caravel to have a somewhat larger sail and wider hull. Now it matches style more closely with its partner ship.
