Sorry man that didn't work, but I did start over with an original PCX.

Better than what I can do! :thumbsup: Good job sprnv8. :)

Can you post a screenshot w/o the grids?

Dec 27, 2002, 01:03 AM
Sure can, you have to give me alittle bit though my computer messed up and I had to reboot to the factory settings, so I had to start over. just a few.

Here are some ingame screenshots, though it is not the Mars map.

I have updated this version of Mars Terrian.

Go Here. (

Nice jov, Sprnv8! Now we have a landmark red desert. :)

Could someone post a screenshot on how these plains (Or are those the grasslands? The rougher looking one...) would look like on the original graphics or on Snoopy's?

Please. :D

Nov 30, 2003, 03:57 PM
Thanks, but I don't quite understand your request?

Nov 30, 2003, 04:26 PM
Well... On Conquests, one can set a terrain type as Landmark Terrain... This means you can create several whole new terrain types... The only thing is, those Landmarks can't be placed on a random-generated map...

Anyway, I'd like to see a screenshot of your plains on Snoopy's Terrain Graphics, as I think it would make a nice red desert/outback/you-name-it Landmark... :)

Have you looked at Civ2, there was a mars scenario with Fantastic Worlds, it might help out too

Nov 30, 2003, 05:28 PM
I would have to work on that a bit for I am still new at Conquests.

Nov 30, 2003, 06:18 PM
That's why I asked if someone else could do the screenshot. :)

Dec 11, 2003, 10:46 PM
Check out Kestral's Mars scenario for civ2, it might help add some more terrains.

If you down load the icons zip it has 8 terrain files. I may help if I get a chance...

Dec 12, 2003, 12:13 PM
Thanks man,
I see you have unit creation experience.

Would you mind helping me with an Idea of a Mod?
If you have time.

I have an Idea of a YuGiHo Mod, I can create the map and a few other things but the unit makeing still eludes me.

Are you familar with YuGiHo?

Dec 12, 2003, 09:10 PM
Whats YuGiHo? Post it in the regular creation forum you might attract moe people too.

Dec 13, 2003, 06:31 AM
Yeah I tried that and no one answered.

Maybe I will try again.

you wouldnt happen to have a template for terrain files would you? Something like in the grassland files that is filled in with two or three solid colors so I can make one color transparent and paste it over a terrain file. It would make doing terrain easier. If so I'd like to help with adding Kestral's terrain.

Jan 05, 2004, 08:35 PM
Nah no templates for Terrain files.

Sorry. :)

Anyone has this graphics terrain mod? if yes, please, upload here.


Feb 09, 2007, 02:11 PM

Feb 09, 2007, 02:20 PM
And I third - a mars mod is one of the things missing from the civ 3 'cannon', and it's time someone made one. :gripe:

Feb 10, 2007, 05:10 PM
I'm studying terrain files, so if I figure them out, I might be able to make something similar.

Feb 10, 2007, 05:22 PM
I would be very grateful to you d.highland. :D

Terrain Files have been updated/changed.
I re-done the pcx files to make them look more like the actual color of Mars.
