View Full Version : Help needed - Resource graphics

Mar 20, 2002, 05:43 AM
I'm revamping the tech tree and resources for the British Isles mod to make them appropriate to the scenario. I need some graphics for the new resources (icon for resources.pcx plus small and large for the civilopedia). Here's what I'm looking for:

Hemp - a coil of rope
Artifacts - standing stones such as Stonehenge

Also, I'd like to bounce the resource changes off you guys to get your opinions. The tech tree will cut off at the end of the Medieval Period so Coal, Oil, Rubber, Uranium and Aluminum were eliminated. The new resources are Hemp, Artifacts, Heather, Salt and Silver. Incense was also replaced with Herbs. Silver was put in because I couldn't think of anything appropriate for the last spot.

Any suggestions for a resource besides silver? Thoughts on Hemp, Heather and Salt?

I appreciate the help! :D

Instead of Hemp, why not Flax? I think it was used more widely for sails and rope, linens, and outher such things.

Here is an image that includes silver, timber, flax and stonehenge type ruins

Fantastic. You wouldn't happen to have civilopedia sized graphics for the flax and ruins, would you?

no, but I can work on them. I need to make an image for flax and silver for my mod anyway. I could do the others while I am at it.

What about sheep?

I was thinking of using sheep instead of silver, actually. They'd give a +1 commerce, +1 food. Except in Scotland of course where they'd make 2 happy faces. :lol:

Oh, boy. I'm going to get flamed for that one.
