Hi guys,

This is the public beta of my recent Terrain mod.
Most of the work was done by me, but many Graphics are based on work
of other creators and a few are modified versions of their work.

Thanks guys, you know who you are.

Known Issues:

Coastal terraint - not finished yet.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The final version will follow in some time.
Until then:

You are allowed to

- use it to enhance your game.
- use it without changes to the files itself for mods or scenarios
- use it in combination with different roads, goodyhuts, rails or terrain buildings.

What I don't want to see you do with this version:

- DON'T PHYSICALLY EDIT OR CHANGE THE FILES ITSELF WITHOUT PERMISSION
- DON'T SELL IT

If you don't want to accept this, DON'T USE IT.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I appreciate your comments.

You know, I expect some more units from you now ;)

Have fun, and post some screens if you want.

I just have one quick question.

- use it to enhance your game.

Does that mean you do not want people using a different road set or territory PCX? Or does it mean you do not want anyone actually phisically editting the pcx's contained in the terrain pack?

The latter. Just because it's not done yet, and work on this will continue. You're free to use other roads, rails or goody huts, of course.

Ares de Borg,

I have been waiting a while for you to release this terrain, even if it is only the beta. Here are some screenshots of it used in El Justo's TCW.









Is there any chance you may make the water less purple ? Of course it may take some time, but maybe I'll get used to it. It is better than the water being too bright.

Thanks Ares.
