    I think this is the best graphics mod pack for terrian there is. Good job. :) It's now part of all of my games. :) And I shared it with friends.

    Now if I could just find a road/rail mod I liked.

    I like most of the changes...but not fussy with the new plain irrigation graphics. Actually....mostly just the first one in the file. Not sure if I'm going to keep it or change it.....

    Edit: Yeah, I cropped the very first irrigation from the last version to the new version. Very nice all around. :D

    Rhye,
    When you redid the ocean terrain did you do it your self or did you just adjust the brightness?

    Finally had time to look these over.

    Of all the separate files I've downloaded (and that are all over my folders) downloading this should organize them all in one place.
    You have so many different graphics in this mod that it is irresistible to download.

    The planes are also awesome. They look just right.

    Thanks for your hard work.

    I based my work on snoopy's files, but it isn't just brightness. The ocean, sea and coastal tiles have been worked out in hue, saturation and blurring, too. In particular coast needed some work with curves and RGB decomposition

    BTW, any chance you might be able to add the city styles that came with the Sn00py terrain graphics (rAMER, rASIAN, rEURO, etc)?

    Excellent work. In our next rev of ACWC3C we were going to add Snoopy's terrain mod but I must say I really like your look better. I think it would blend with the scale of Procifica's American Civil War map better.

    Have you ever considered taking a turn at railroad tiles? We've needed a more 18th century look to them than the standard CIV tiles.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I don't remember the format the music was. It it was in audio tracks, ripping into mp3 would be enough
