Bump from beyond the grave!
I've added support to AWBW for doing the context sensitive pretty shoals, but it needs quite a lot of tiles and I'm not much of an artist, so I'm crowdsourcing this to you guys for some help.
There's a total of 81 tiles, in 3 different weathers, needed to make this all display well. To submit tiles, please name them as indicated below and zip/rar/7z/tarball them up and upload them somewhere. I'll keep this thread updated with images of some maps + the set of tiles used on those images. I'd like to take care of clear first, then we can work on rain/snow after. Once we get a real nice pretty set of tiles, I can push this to the site. One person doesn't need to do all the tiles, everyone is welcome to contribute until we have a really nice set of graphics.
File Naming Procedure:
Each shoal tile has 4 tiles around it, which I will be calling top left right and bottom, which shoal tile to display depends on what's in those 4. Each slot has 3 possibilities - a land tile, a shoal tile, or a sea tile. Land tiles are given a value of 2, shoal tiles a value of 1, and sea tiles a value of 0. That value is multiplied by a different number depending on what slot it's in; top = 1, left = 3, right = 9, bottom = 27. Add the totals from each of the 4 slots together to figure out what shoal tile to display.
For example a shoal with land to the right of it and sea all around would go like this:
Top = 0 (sea) * 1 (top) = 0.
Left = 0 (sea) * 3 (left) = 0
Right = 2 (land) * 9 (right) = 18
Bottom = 0 (sea) * 27 (bottom) = 0
0 + 0 + 18 + 0 = 18
So this tile should be named shoal18.gif
the rain and snow versions would be named shoal18_rain.gif and shoal18_snow.gif, respectively.
Tiles should be 16x16 px, gif format.
