    I was wondering if you were going to update the LM terrains. I have a request if you do. To make them different terrains, such as the LM Desert could be made into some kind of wasteland, LM Plains could be made into Steppes and so on.

    Either way, I like your terrain the best so far, aside from the mossy marsh, but I can live with that. I want to use this terain for my mod in C3C.

    I'll post LM terrains in the following days.
    But I won't create different graphics for any wastelands or steppes, as anyone could desire a different specific LM.
    About the marsh, it's simple the Snoppy's one. You can always replace it with the original one if you like. But sooner or later I'll change it.

    OK cool. Thanx, I wasn't sure the graphix were compatible.

    I didn't figure you would change the LM terrain graphix, but it was worth a try to ask. I can just change their names for my mod after you finish them. :goodjob:

    It is now available the updated version: a few corrections and the Conquests part3, which contains LM terrain

    PTW part2 download brings up CONQUESTS part2 download. Is this correct or did you get the wrong link. I checked the uploads5 folder and there is no PTW part2 zip file

    Yes it is correct. It contains the same files, and it seemed stupid to me putting twice the same file with 2 different names.

    Thanks, I kind of figured that was the case, however, I wanted to ask first. Thanks, and it looks very cool!


    EDIT:
    I loaded this mod pack up and found that some of the coast and sea tiles don't match up correctly colorwise.

    This first image is of the area where I noticed the problem.


    This one I circled the area in red ust in case it is not clear.


    It appears to be a simple color issue, though I could be wrong.

    It's a great mod pack, I love it, and I'm not trying to be harsh, just helpful by pointing this out! :)

    I'm sorry, am I blind? I really don't see the mismatch :)
    Please circle the single place that is wrong

    It could be my computer is displaying more colors.

    Anyways, I see a color mismatch here:


    It's only where Ocean tiles meet sea tiles, and where sea tiles meet coast tiles. Again, it could just be the color display on my computer but I see a color mismatch along water tile edges causing a line to be seen at those edges. Unless this is meant?

    I can see some mismatch here:

    (but you know, even Firaxis's terrain wasn't perfect. I'll probably correct it in future but it's not the only tile to be corrected)

    Good grief I know there are levels of perfection but I am glad that you put circles around those 'imperfections' there Rhye. :D

    I just couldn't see anything

    I don't know how I can bring myself to play this game any longer :rolleyes: ;)

    @ Morgan UK alright I get your sarcasim.

    @ Rhye, sorry man. I siad it could just be the colors on my computer, which it looks like it is. I was, by no means, trying to be a pain nor was I trying to say you did a bad job. In fact, I said it looks very cool. You did a great job, and I love it. I thought I was being helpful by pointing out a problem, but since all I got was flank forget being helpful.


    Again, great job... even though you'll give me flank for that too!

    I can easily see it on Nexushyper's screen shots. The edges of the tile don't match (where he circled). There is an obvious zigzag pattern.

    Yes, Firaxis messed up the grassland tiles. There is a row of bad pixels in them (not just colors no matching).

    I can see it too, but it is light enough for me to not really notice it.

    Nice.

    This might not be the right place to post this question, but...

    In C3C:
    Is there an easy way to integrate all these nice graphics-modpacks into the epic game? And not only use them as scenarios? So we can play with all the nice graphics and STILL get a rating in the HOF?

    Yes. Substitute the files in Conquests\art\terrain folder with the new files(after having done a backup)
