    WIP update: regions names are created for Westandor continent and atm we are working on Eastandor. 56 new units will be added to balance the game. instead faction spwaning outside city improvemnet we decide to make it as city improvement and to put rebel stronghold/barbarian spawn improvemnts on the map. its little busy time atm for me so i will try to do best for new previews.

    that would be great, cuz u and SW walker that made those fantasy based files would be perfect to judge my mod.

    WIP update: Tech icons finished and era splash ( althou i have two more packs of era splashes in my mind so maybe it will change until we released mod), I made few tech icons that we miss from DB cuz we dont have it it will posted when mod is relased. Atm working music files and GUI i hope era splashes will be fine when i speak with Nathiri.

    WIP update: Sry i couldnt be faster to post WIP updates. So for now i finished music, tech icons, era splash and small GUI tweeks, Nathiri finished regional names update and added several buildings files. Atm 90% mod files is done and around 20% is correctly edited to mod-game folder.

    In last 10% mod files im trying to made new in game video trailer, in game city management screen and we gonna try to made (well Nathiri will hehe) new barbarian village spawn as new in game improvement ( i took his idea from his mod and little upgraded). Again this is still all WIP things so they are all possible to change. Also possible we gonna add 1 more building in blgd roster to balance resources roster ( Salt Mine / Salt) this is something that I tried to bypass due to saltpeter (gunpowder) but depends cuz we already have large amount of buildings in mod. Also Nathiri propose to add one more unit for roster (universal-specific one) called Supply Wagon this is due to our two farm buildings cant have correct correlated blgd/resource in game value so we need somehow to make flag unit for those two farms ( again i have unit , idea came from Civinator CCM mod). I changed some recruiting stuff on first page especially about that we need VIDEO trailer maker.

    Keep calm & and always rush B:goodjob:

    WIP update: sorry for rly bad updates about mod dev but rly busy and im most say slow pace we had last month. ok we sorted buildings problem and fit 254 blgd in roster so atm we have two spare places to bring back two buildings into roster but that depends on Nathiri feedback about it. Nathiri did adding of builidngs for first era and atm im trying to get info about progress he made. atm im doing unit descriptions and buildings descriptions. Basically i hope we could very soon beta test mod again when i got feedback on progress by team members.

    Again sry for not posting still previews cuz i will prolly go for new topic when mod passes beta test.

    WIP update: Resources are placed on map, atm we have little problem on region names resources many of them i cant put on map and we will change prolly color of them cuz atm they are not visible enough on map. Im also doing few new wonder splash screens (maybe wonder atm i have not full operational mod package with me ). Still waiting on Nathiri and technical problem about mod crashing that we have as i saw he already asked some for advice on that on forums. Im hoping at least to bring up preview of new units so u can see it but atm im little busy in rl so i hope i will do it asap.

    Again any help hands would be welcomed so i can finish this mod conatc me via pvt msg on forums.

    WIP update: Ok Nathiri have atm all files last files that we was doing is regional names we gonna change color of them because atm some region names where they are placed on map are not quite visible due to that we agreed upon that white color will be for sea/ocean/lakes/coast bays, pruple variant for land based terrain. Only stuff from my side to finish is unit descriptions and building descriptions. There is possibility that i will need to make few new wonders splashes cuz atm im not fond too much and two out of four that is placed so it will fit more accurate on fantasy based mod. Again atm holds mod stuff and keeps it going when i get feedback from Nathiri or new screenshot i will placed it on forums until then i wait.

    Again rly sry for very low frequency of WIP updates/progress about ToMR.

    WIP update: Well atm big problems occurred for my project if my friend Nathiri (and prolly he will steps out from assembling WIP due to his projects) and due to my lacking know-how to mod properly civ 3 i ask any1 who is willing to help me out to finish this mod. If this appeal wont be able to work in community i would be forced in future time proclaimed that this project is cancelled. I still hope that i can finished but we shall see. Anyone who has time i got all date files i could upload u and explain what i want send me pvt msg and i will give him teamspeak address where i can explain everything about mod.

    WIP update: I think will try to renew work on mod. So far i will prolly canceled few factions and combined them into one faction. This means rework a new map and factions will change so it can fit properly. if calculated i think it should 1 evil faction with two subkingdoms marked only as specific territory lets say Helldum will have Icemar and Mordovia now together so Units will be reshuffled, Arelat will get Exigo and Dor , Rylos stays, Lamedon and Noranstays too, Shadizar Empire will be new reworked faction with units from arahas tribes and some eastern factions from original, Vrags will stays as single northmen faction, Free cities will be removed, Rasenian Empire will totally reworked and new name will be given, Ungrian Horde as steppe nation stays and Oriental Empire will be combined between Dalsan, Hotan and Yomon. Pirates stays and arcanium will be renamed as elysium. Elven alliance will be clustered as 1 faction with two subkingdoms similar as helldum and same will happen to dwarfs 1 faction this means litterally new map will be needed.
    So faction list will be this one:
    1.helldum,
    2 arelat
    3.noran
    4.rylos
    5.lamedon
    6.elostrion (mages)
    7.southron alliance
    8.ungrian horde
    9.elven alliance
    10 dwarven alliance
    11.oriental empire
    12.pirate brotherhood
    13.Eastern empire
    14.vrags
    not all units from original will be included which means i need to reshuffle everything, but some units that represent subkingdoms will be in unit roster of new rworked factions. tech tree will be reworked nd reduced but i will try to keep separation of military,government,industry and religion techs.
    Any help is welcomed due to my modest knowlegde and quite afk from this mod cuz of rl stuff that i had last 2 years.any sugestion also is welcomed.

    Hi Vojvoda

    Your image has a reduced palette; I assume because you used MS Paint and saved it as a .BMP. MS Paint also loves to screw-up you images by blending the colours.
    Spoiler :
    upload_2019-1-17_19-4-12.png

    If you want to remake the terrainbuildings file and saved it as a PNG, I’ll correct the transparency colours and you’d have better graphics too.
    Spoiler :
    upload_2019-1-17_19-22-32.png

    You can either open an existing PNG and add to it or save a new file as terrainbuildings.png and re-upload it.

    You can check if you’ve caused the blending problem by reloading the file and pasting in a contrasting colour.

    I probably didn’t explain it well enough. You’re going to need to remake the file from scratch using the original components. Your image still has all of the flaws. I’d have to manually correct every pixel to correct what you’ve sent.

    I hope for your sake that you’ve kept your source material.
