    I think it would be helpful if we had a series of new smilies that were based on specific game icons. I made the following for my own personal use, but if a moderator wants to add them to the smilies so everyone can use them that would be great.

    Hammers:
    Food:
    Science:
    Culture:
    Coins:
    Trade Route:
    Health:
    Mr. Yuck:
    Great Person:
    Religion:

    They would certainly be very useful, though I'd suggest having the food, hammer and commerce ones with only one of each icon, not two to avoid confusion. A separate one for gold (the stack of gold coins), rather than commerce would also be needed.

    Not a bad idea at all. :) I will see if I can make some with good transparencies.

    Yeah, we need a :mwaha: at some point. I'm just not able to express myself properly without one.

    You gotta pick your battles.

    Besides we I'd rather have other old smilies like :splat: returned than get new ones. :splat: was awesome (but :mwaha: is needed more)

    But whay can't we make the small leap from having it on the server to having a little shortcut (IE :mwaha:) so I don't forget how to get the damn thing.

    Here you go... Took me a while to make the transparency look good....

    :commerce: :science: :move: :health: :gp: :yuck: :food: :gold: :culture: :traderoute: :religion: :hammer3:

    The smilie codes are:

    Code:
    :commerce: :science: :move:  :health: :gp: :yuck: :food: :gold: :culture: :traderoute: :religion: :hammer3:
    Note the code for hammer is : hammer3 :, as we have two animated hammer similes already.
