A bit late of a reply, but I actually did flatten it to two layers, I just added an Ice Shelf layer afterward. And now I went and mixed things up again.

Result:
Arctic tiles now have tundra under their glaciers, including blending with tundra tiles, eliminating grassy land between arctic/tundra blending.

Changes:
1) Retouched the first ice shelf sprite
2) Revamped Ocean and Arctic tiles
3) Added dummy sprite references as necessary for blending

Ocean changes:
Corner land-blending combined into base ocean tiles
Shorelines moved to a separate layer

Arctic changes:
Base layer sprite and matching changed to tundra
glacier moved to a separate layer

Was working on a big, double-scale version of trident when I hit upon this epiphany. (been working on it off and on for a few months, which I cleverly have named 'sextant'...because I can't rightly call a square tileset 'hexadent' ) Though there's a blank area where some of the old water tiles were, which might eventually warrant removing, but redoing the entire image and spec is migraine-inducing.

Submitted for review.
Contains edited trident.tilespec, tiles.png, and tiles.spec. And I forgot to check if there were any updates to these files since 2.5.1.
Edit: Confirmed that there haven't been any.

I've discovered translucent pixels in the second hill sprite at 151,0-158,0.

Contains the previous post's changes plus the fixes to said pixels.

I was looking at amplio's outpost spritesand was inspirted to make this. Do you think this is better or worse than the 'low wall' version of the outpost?

I haven't tested this in context to see if it would make it easier to distinguish outpost from a fortress, but I wonder if we should make Fortress gfx different by having some stone instead of wooden structure there.

I always felt that the fortress /WAS/ stone, granite or something. Perhaps something more like a segmented polynesian city wall would be better to represent the outpost's woodenness?

Trident's 0% hitpoints sprite got lost in the 2.5 edit. Filled in the blank (already referenced) sprite with 0% sprite.

cazfi wrote:The only open art questions for 2.5 in my list are those related to activity icons on the secondary tilesets. The icons in question are 'unit.convert' and base / road type specific building icons. Latter ones are something we may simply decide that those tilesets use same road building icon regardless of road type like they currently do.

I did 'unit.convert' in patch #6240.

So maybe we'll finally be done in 2.5.2? cazfi, is your missing gfx spreadsheet online somewhere in editable form?

Current status of activity icons is that amplio2 (=> cimpletoon) and trident have separate ones; hex2t, isotrident (=> isophex), and amplio modpack have old-style ones. I'm happy to leave it that way.
