    As mentioned above in the changes, the new Europe screen (sorry Koma). I think this one looks awesome. :)

    Dale, I'm no graphical artist, this is no problem ;).
    But I have maybe some good news. I met a guy from switzerland in a german civ forum, who is working right now on an improved background for the europe screen. It's still needs some fine tuning, but I think it's an interesting possibility. I will bundle it with the next update.

    Wow on both counts!

    The first looks like a european village port, feels like its Summer, in Spain or Portugal.
    The second could easily be a docks in London or Holland. Nice seagulls!

    I want to see a third picture to represent France, with somebody riding a bike along the port, in a stripey top with some french sticks in his backpack! (kidding :p)

    They are both seriously ace (is there any possibility of incorporating both or is that a bit of a reach?) - I'd like to see the second with buttons and icons though :D

    have you thought of putting some wonders in? but make the wonders historic companies and just have their bonus be that they can automatically consume the resource and produce gold. i.e. a sugar company automatically (if worked) converts sugar to gold in the city where it is built without having to go to europe

    That's awesome! About the only complaint is that the buildings look a little "billboardy", as in they look very 2D.

    Maybe is too much, but due that there are already done four different european screens, would be a nice touch adopt one different for each civ.

    Personally, I prefer the 2nd Europe one at the moment, though I'd be interested to see how it looks with the overlay. Do the birds and waves animate?

    More updates have been added. The most recent is that I've gotten the AI to buy a better navy. :)

    It'll now buy more galleons and combat vessels.

    I'll try to get a screeny showing this.

    Okay, here's the Dutch AI at turn 200, revolutionary difficulty and normal game speed. I'm actually surprised, as no AI has had the DoI yet.

    Anyways, two pics showing the AI's naval buildup. :)

    Was it really necessary to quote the first line of my last post again and again? :crazyeye:

    Right now, no.
    But I can make a similar animation effect for the waves like you can see in my current release.

    Well, the buildings are always the weakest link in my releases, right ;)? I'm not sure how much I or Fankman (who created the new background) can alter their look, but I'll try some post effects in GIMP.

    No, the horizon still hasn't the correct position, inbound ship would floating in the air.
    Btw, you are easy to scare, my friend. ;)

    Thank you, Jenks. Incorporating both screen should be no problem. Tortuga screen already works like this. But that is a decision Dale has to make.

    I have question why is it the natives does not display their product want to trade after I traded with them? In the past patch they always shows what they want

    Why the turn increase? It seems fine the way it is to me.

    New addition which has been sorely missed:

    Trade ships (caravel, carrack, fluyt, merchantman, galleon, pirate brig) can trade in European colony ports without open border agreement.

    This should open up the trading game to both the AI and player, and not force you into open border agreements. Traders were generally private citizens happily allowed to trade in other nation's ports without the need for national level trade agreements.
