    Hi all. I've finally finished my Aztec diplo interface and I personally like the result. I've fully in-game tested and everything seems ok so let me know if not. It's a big file so I had to upload in two halves.(You need both zips for the full effect)
    Two things I would like opinions on are the jade up and down arrows and the jade dragon in the talk_offer screen.
    Cheers!
    Edit.(23/08/2005) I've added pop-up menu & border graphix.

    Awesome! I'm definitely using this immediately for the GotM46...it might stay permenently. :D

    My one minor gripe about tthe Celtic version was the black art under the negotiation screen. This one is grayed-out so it stays in the background and doesn't get in the way of the game text.

    Good job. :goodjob:

    Hmm. I had forgotten about that black diamond graphic in the celtic one. I might go back and redo that.
    Thanks MeteorPunch and Rod.

    I've now added pop-up menu & border graphix on the first post. Stick 'em directly into your art folder.(back-up originals first)

    It's something I'd like to do but I'm still relatively new to this type of graphic manipulation and I feel it would take a really long time to complete. However, there's no reason I can't do it one step at a time as I work on the Aztec scenario.

    I have a template that I start from. It shows me where the various text areas have to be . Then I decide on a texture for the text panels and just search endlessly for images to use and abuse to fill the surrounding areas.
    I have a better version of the template at home but you can find my original one here.

    I'm sure you'd get it. Everything sounds complex until you've done it a couple of times. It's more tedious than anything else.
    Maybe I'll do a tutorial soon. Feels a little wierd though. A month ago I hadn't posted a single piece of work yet. Now people are asking requests. I don't feel like I'm in a position to teach anything when I still have so much learning to do myself!

    Very cool...
    I like the Celtic one better, but his one is alot easier to read on, and it's really neat, down to the skull box borders.
    Cool.
