Would be nice to have something better for 2.5.0. Relevant file is data/misc/editor.png.


Hadn't realized what this was until I just went to the GNA thread and saw that post :P

Here's a version with a crossed road and railroad.

See bug #20032 for how I'm planning to setup these.

For completeness, it would be nice to have activity icon for Airstrip matching sprite of the airstrip extra itself, since that is provided already in 2.5 tileset (But since no supplied ruleset uses those until 2.6, this is really not-a-high-priority)

Ah, which versions are we using for the Airstrip/Airfield and Airbase again? Are we using X for airstrip/airfield (Which name should be preferred? airfield seems like it is more applicable.) and X w/ building for airbase, or something else? And is it a matter of editting the 2.5 files to match this? (Tiles and Modern Cities, I think?)

Also, I STRONGLY advise against using Fort and Fortress as distict bases, internally or otherwise. It's confusing because the former is an abbreviation of the latter. (Despite how punny it is to use shortened fortress for a shortened fortress) I suggest castra(latin for 'encampment buildings', which included a wall. Is plural), palisade, or encampment(Which is distinct enough from camp, in case that is ever used for a forest infrastructure or the like).

That naming was handled in patch #5524, with some discussion in patch #5027.

Oooh, okay. I hadn't gotten any feedback on that thread I made for a long time, so I just ultimately went with the one person that did give feedback.

I fished this image of the Tomb of Mausolus from Wiki and it's free under the GNU agreements.
It comes in different sizes, and I hope it will help.

Please link to the original source when suggesting graphics, so that we can evaluate the licensing ourselves.

In this case it's dual-licensed GFDL/CC-BY-SA (as is usual with Wikimedia stuff), which I believe means we can't use it (there are definitely some licensing incompatibilities in this general area).

(However, we've already got something for Mausolus, which will do for now.)

As for Tribal and Federation governments...
I'll probably try to make a Teepee for the Tribal, and put it on a Cyan background.

As for the federation...
This is the symbol of the united federation of planets from Star Trek. Which is practically synonymous with the term 'Federation'.
While we have neither the space nor the rights to use the image, the basic design shouldn't be any problem.
I was thinking a simple blue disc with green laurels around it on a grey field.
