    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know/remember what terrain pack was used for Eivind’s Colonialism Age of Discovery scenario? Or did he do all that himself?

    I've read his readme file and it lists credits for pretty much everything except terrain lol!




    I ask as it makes a great terrain pack (with some modifications) for regular vanilla Civ2 games too as it's so full of life and colour. However if Eivind simply took it from some popular terrain pack that everyone was using back in the day then I'd live to know where it is and who made it so I can properly credit them in my video series.

    From recent discussions elsewhere it sounds like Eivind mixed and matched terrain from multiple different talented authors such as Exile, Favoured Flight and Fairline to build his terrain set for Colonialism. If you see your work in there please let me know and I’ll add your name to the credits!

    These were the changes I made in the above screenshots:
    • Brought back in default vanilla Civ2 special resource icons and replaced everything other than Eivind's wheat.
    • Replicated Eivind's mountain gold special resource over to iron slot and coloured reddish.
    • Brought back in default vanilla Railroads.
    • Brought across skinny cream coloured roads from John Ellis’s Hellas.

    Just made these changes too:
    • Replaced mountain special resource icons with ones from Jesus Balsinde's Alba De America.
    • Merged John Ellis’s light skinny roads with vanilla roads to ensure they still have the darker bits (otherwise roads disappear in desert tiles). Recoloured darker bits to better match terrain set.
    • Switched the very dark grey forest base out for dark green version of Eivind's grassland.
    • Lightened the black bits in the jungle to better match terrain set.

    Think I'm almost happy with it now...
