    Hey Pounder. I know this isnt a good place for requests, but I was wondering if you could put together a sort of lumber camp graphic. As a resource is fine. I can put something okay together that would work, but I would prefer a higher quality one. I cant seem to find one specifically on the site so far, since most are just wood, and I would like a camp or 2 with it. Any extra detail on a map is always nice.

    This is as good a place as any to make requests.

    I am actually intending to use it as a terrain building, but it's easy enough to copy it as a resource. There is actually a terrain building that looks like a lumber camp in one of Goldfool's, though it looks a bit cartoony. I am intending for it to be a Mine replacement on a forest.

    Thanks for the fast work. I hope I'm not asking too much, but is it possible you could put some colouring on it so it looks more natural in the world? I was actually hoping it would look similar to some of your detailed and nicely coloured resources in your resource file, but that must be quite a bit of work to make. I have made something decent as a placeholder using your campsite resource that you posted just recently, and I added lumber logs, which are pasted over the campfire. It looks the best so far out of some other possible options I found.

    @ timeover51

    Okay, here are the downloads.

    Stole a frame from Plotinus's Mammoth Unit to make the mammoth resource, re-coloured the gold to make the copper, made a new bison and a new potatoes. Added your original resources to the bottom of the resources file so you still have them.

    Replace old files with the new:
    resources.pcx is in the "art" folder
    luxuryicons_small.pcx is in the "art/city screen" folder
    1)Rename and save the old files.
    2)Copy in the new files into their respective folders.

    Are you using a MAC, if you are there should be no issues.

    Pounder, if you ever visit the Chicago area, I owe you a nice meal on me. Otherwise, if you ever need any research done or ideas for unit values, please let me know. Thanks so very much.

    Edit Note: I assume that I could plug some of these into Play the World as well?

    Greetings Pounder. I would figure that resource good for 2 Commerce and 2 Gold. The commerce from the businesses making souvenirs and the concession stands while the gold comes from ticket sales and tax receipts.

    Sure, this is how I do most of my static graphics.

    I use MSPaint and GIMP.

    I start by using MSPaint because it is easier to move things around and layer things, then I save it as a PNG file.

    I then open the PNG file with GIMP, scale to the size I want, convert file from RGB to indexed, add the transparancies, then save as a PCX.

    Greetings Pounder. You need to consider entertainment taxes. They will be about $10 to $15 per ticket for every ticket sold. Lots of revenue for the city government.

    I looked at your request thread, you don't have any pictures on your request thread.

    I'm not sure what you are looking for most of them, I suggest adding pictures for them on your thread.

    I might look at doing a few of them, maybe some of the fruits and nuts......
