    I think the #1 should be your choice for sand, since #2 reminds me of dirt. Which is a different terrain type, as I`ve gathered from your post above.

    Spacer One... What a "Bummer", you lost your work. Not that it will help ease your loss much now but I can tell you that if you do re-make the Interface, it will be faster, easier and better the second time.

    Supa... I vote #1 if it will blend with the other terrain. Your terrain, from what I have gathered, will be quite colorful and have high contrast. #1 will show Units more distinctly and it also looks more like sand.

    Ok, first time I see this thread, and I did not read everything, but the little I read I love it.

    From the first page someone mention naval unit as a snake. So I tough, as they are insects, what if you use just some peace of wood to be a ship? As an attack, the wood would just bump into the other one, and whoever lose would crack (hope I wrote that right) and sink(Edit:mentioning the peace of wood, for some reason, I read what I post and didn't sound so good..lol).

    Well like I say, I did not read everything in this thread, so I don't know how far you are in the mod, sorry if the idea was already suggested, or you have one planned already.

    It could be a little branch with a leaf as a sail :lol: I`d let that butt in before my Asian Dragon request from Orthanc, if you`d like :)

    Supa... Do you plan to use the Leaf and Flower both for the transport?

    ...also, do you plan to have "Paradrop" ability for any of the units? I think a dandelion seed with downy tufts would be a cool parachute :lol:

    Nope, only one transport is planned and it's the naval nenufar or the piece of wood.

    Not for the moment, but it's not written in stone.

    Cuts? Try puncture wounds. Also, some tribes have been known to use them as stiches. (make them bite you, then twist off the body.

    And acid spraying ants are nothing next to exploding ants. Thats right, exploding ants. They build up pressure in their bodies until they burst, covering their enemies with a sticky toxin.

    Nature sure is weird.:lol:

    OK. I've been stocking this thread for awhile and I decided to help! I can do Interface, Diplomacy, Terrain, City's and City Screen

    I can use only nature materials for those... that is if your interested!

    well I saw you've posted a pretty cool stuff (terrain) but shouldn't the grass be big as the insects? I thought everything should be dirt and woods should be grass, if your following me!

    Shouldn't the trees be bigger than the Spearman ? ;-) Bigger and it would be less clear and you would be able to see patterns faster.

    A little preview :

    Spoiler :


    As you can see, grass and dirt looks a little different.. More crisp.

    I'll be following this... looks really interesting.

    Will you be using your Ebirah as a naval unit? Lobsters are basically big insects.
