    Oni Ryuu... Yes indeed, congratulations on your continued development. Looks Great.
    Talk about a different Game from the Civ Engine, this game is certainly Novel. I can "see" that you have really been working on a "Labor of Love" with this game and that will make the difference with in this meritorious endeavor

    Thanks guys.

    There’s still a lot of work to do. I hope screen shots will keep you interested until the next update.

    Great job. I'm actually quite amazed and have lost all connection to what terrains you are using and what flags are impassable or whatever, which is a great thing!

    Thanks again guys. I wouldn’t know if this stuff was worth doing without your feedback.

    Most of these graphics are only temporary. I'm hoping to get the attention of some graphics designers and animators. Everything should look much more natural with expert help.

    I’m going to draft out a short demo so everyone can see how the game will look and work.

    Non-alcoholic beer, kale and quorn sausages. The horror!

    Not sure what you have in mind for the rivers. I might be able to do something with some pipe section graphics I have.

    HI Blue Monkey.

    I’m actually using the rivers for road markings.

    I could use stuff like ducting, air conditioners and other industrial items. Anything you have on this scale could be quite useful.

    EDIT: Do you know how to edit the ‘fog of war’ graphics to make things look like a smoky, moonlit night.

    It's been a few years since experimenting, but iirc fog of war is hardcoded & no way to change it.

    Are you sure that it can't be done?

    I have removed the graphics from the roads.pcx file. I then added graphics to the tiles that I could use depending on their position.
    Spoiler :

    When the tiles are connected two tiles display the two halves of the deployed ladders. When the lower tile is pillaged the upper tile shows a third image of a retracted ladder.

    An immobile, invisible, nationless and defenceless (immortal) unit is placed on the lower tile to construct or pillage the road. The doors and planks use a similar system. The DIY ladders and climbing rope are fixed.

    I’ll write a full tutorial covering everything when the mod’s finished.

    Oni Ryuu... The FogOfWar.pcx does seem to be Hard Coded as even if you change the Palette colors or make or add a different Palette such as using Smoke and Shadow Shades found on a Unit Palette, it remains unchanged in Game.

    Sorry @Vuldacon. I was sure I responded to your post.
    Thanks for checking out the Fog-of-War stuff. I’ll just have to have really dark terrain graphics.

    This mod is still my priority here but, I’ve not had the time I need to work on it for a while. I’ll do my best to keep things moving forward.
