    still have a lot of work to do on the borders. I'm going to have to make a new "blank" and mix terrains in order to get good borders I think. Here are the sand dunes based on Kryten's Civ3 San Dunes. I'm looking to edit these to make the dunes smaller and more varied in each square.

    Well then if we want to fix this we need to find the bug in the source (asuming we get it) and fix it there. But I guess this'll have fairly low priority (should have IMO).

    Ah you mean this, unfortunatly the problem is inevitable. More or less it appears at all overlapping portions of the tiles. Well not in this degree, for instance I wan't able to get a shot of your example with the full mountain, always something was missing and if it was just a very small part it is so big that you never get it in a whole.

    Well in the second example it is a little bit more difficuilt, to get it, but if you look close enough you see that the building near of the South corner has an in the air hanging roof. This problem appairs after scrolling, while you are scrolling the overlapping portions aren't updated. So I would ignore this bug if I design a new terrain type.

    Martin:

    The problem is not in the tile displayed in the terrain-info image. but on the map: If you look at the border between the mountains and the plain, you will se that a part of the "tile overlap" is missing. The mountain should go all the way down to the eastern corner of the mountain tile, not only half way as is the case.

    The only solution to this that I can se is to have this error in mind while designing the tile-graphics.

    Actual this is exactly the image of that mountain you find in the original tile file, so it is a problem of drawing, on the map you don't notice it, because of a neighbor tile image. But you have to admit it would be a lot more difficuilt to make it so that the terrain window displays a part of the neighbor tile, so one way to fix this little problem would be to draw an overlapping tile image.

    I guess it is the code because when I built my mountains I built off of TGAs like the one you showed and tried to follow the shape closely. Maybe I'm being a little perfectionist about it.

    Comparing to the shot you posted I guess my new graphics still look good. Thanks for the help Martin!

    I'll work on the sand dunes, deserts, and plains this weekend, might not change too much and add a few improvements that will finish me on this one. I hope you guys like it.

    Hi E

    Could you post the affected grapics (not a screenshot) and an export from TileEdit. You could also mail them to me. I'd like to make sure it's not an error in TileEdit.
