    You can have only one set of rivers. Even though there are mountain rivers and delta rivers, the actual rivers are a mix of both and across flat land both files tiles are intermixed.

    Mind you, as you may know, I have demonstrated on my Canals Preview Thread http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=120985 (I think you will find it on Post#50) that you can have major rivers that actual can allow ships to go up river.

    to bad on my idea then. It would have been cool to see both types of rivers used. Easy crossable little rivers and then the Big non crossable major rivers. Unless u had cities as the gate way for crossing. U could then really do a ( Bridge to Far ) type mod.

    But on a side note then. once u finish the Canals could u do a version for Jokers terrian. I know we could use that in the SST mods with some of the other stuff u have done. With Credit of course.

    The wide rivers look good, but I think I prefer the regular ones. Like Bjornlo said, it looks like a small boat ahould be able to navigate them. I don't really like the bridge idea either, because it doesn't make sense for a crossing to cost 1 MP before engineering when there is a visible bridge spanning the river.

    I don't use Jokers terrain, but maybe I will have a look at it later, I would have to match the colours up with Jokers coastal waters.

    May be a bit of work,

    or maybe if I pasted over top of his palette for the delta rivers and the mountain rivers files maybe would could get lucky and it may be no work.

    Would you be able to posts joker's deltaRivers.pcx and mtnRivers.pcx, so I don't have to load his whole mod.

    It is not clean, as you can see the colours are different for each file, so there are some dark tiles and some light. I will have to make them from scratch (from joker's original files), which will take a lot more time.

    Have you tried the files I have already posted on joker's terrain, they may work as is.

    Could be used as the Ganges river, perhaps?

    I thought that I would play around with making the deltas larger because they were still having problems with the fact that every terrain is a different size and the deltas don't start and end on the same place on each terrain.

    So by making them as large as possible they can help to clover up this flaw.

    Tell me what you think. I could make a couple of other changes while I'm working on this file.

    I know others have done this kind of thing before, well here is my version.

    I think Rivers with banks look better when they go through jungles and forests and over irrigation.

    I have also used the extended deltas so that the river delta always makes it to the sea.

    You need to use both these files together, place in the terrain folder, don't forget to save your originals.

    Those banks, are perfect, dude. I always had a problem with rivers looking like they were on top of trees and stuff.
