    A while ago it has come to my attention some people are ruining their eyesight by trying to spot resources that are hidden in the FOW. Spotting these resources is a difficult, time consuming and unhealthy task. It's my personal opinion Infogrames and Firaxis should be sued for releasing the game in this state but it appears the problem hasn't been solved for the Conquest addition either.


    But to solve the issue for the time being I have developed [drummroll] :

    ProPain's 'save your eyesight' Graphics mod

    Here's how they look:


    And here's an ingame screenshot:


    Please note how conveniently the white rectangles peek out of the fog!

    Download them here:Save Your Eyesight Mod

    And replace the old resources.pcx in the conquests/art folder. It might be wise to back up the resources.pcx if you ever want to return to your old graphics.

    Erm, interesting as this discussion is, it isn't really on the topic of the thread. ;)

    Edit: Thanks, Matrix. :)

    Good point. I think the first work of our new GOTM admin should be to put this on the proihbited cheats- list. ;)

    BTW, it sure looks good. :goodjob:

    is it cheating because you see them in the darkness or for another reason?

    I wouldn't say using this modpack is cheating of course. But it seems they are unfit to use in some competitions, say GOTM, because they peek out the FoW. Now I could make those squares a little smaller to prevent that but that would defy the whole goal of saving your eyesight as that would require people to stare at the screen again and use magnifying tools just to spot those darn resources.

    Also I'd like to annouce a new feature:

    Custom coloring you 'save-your-eyesight' mod
    It is now possible to get the save-your-eyesight modpack in your own custom color!

    Just post here and receive your mod within the week!

    Because they are so easy to discern under the Fog Of War, they would be considered a *cheat* in competition games like GOTM. But nothing prevents you from using them in your own personal games! :D
