So I decided to attempt to make a flash, and I ended up with this:

Bases16



18 structures adapted from Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, laid out to copy/paste into the .pcx of your next custom faction.

Bases are the most difficult aspect of a SMACX faction graphic to create, so it is hoped that these graphic goodie files will give beginners at faction modding a leg up.  See also the Portraits, Diplomacy Landscapes and Logos series, also in this Downloads section, and for info on art techniques and/or to communicate with BU and ask any questions, see the Graphics thread: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=1237.0  These are a lot of work to put together, so please be sure to credit me in the empty space of the .pcx.  Posting to let me know you found it useful would be okay, too.

Thanks to BlueFlux for the SW: GB files I worked with.

Diplomacy Landscapes2

Diplomacy Landscapes2



23 diplomacy landscapes, size/croped and scanlined to copy/paste as-is into the .pcx of your next custom faction.

Diplomacy landscapes are one of the easier aspects of a SMACX faction graphic to create -provided one hasn't anything terribly specific in mind- but it is hoped that these graphic goodie files will give beginners at faction modding a leg up - given a logo appropriate to the faction, all the elements of a faction graphic are available in AC2's Download section for anyone with elementary copy/paste skills and a graphics program that can handle .pcx files - a good eye/taste helps, too.  (See also the Bases and Portraits series.)

For info on art techniques and/or to communicate with BU and ask any questions, see the Graphics thread: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=1237.0  These are a lot of work to put together, so please be sure to credit me in the empty space of the .pcx.  Posting to let me know you found it useful would be okay, too.

I've seen SMAC Earth maps before - is that what you mean?

If it's an Earth map, then it would include Africa.
So yes. That one in particular looked really nice to me for some reason.

Looks like there's been some mild terrain texture modding.  Looks good.

Alright, I figure this fits in this thread well enough
This guy named Lobo on a different forum used to take requests for avatars. My avatar is an example.
Unfortunately he doesn't do that anymore. Me and a few other people have joked about being his legacy, and I actually went through with that.
Modded my avatar to look like Shadow the Hedgehog. It turned out pretty okay and I felt like editing an image for some inexplicable reason.

About that map--that may or may not be Flygon's. I remember him playing on an Earth map--ask him :)

Such a quirky style of avatar XD

The 80s were not cool.

I was there, and it was a stupid decade.

Eh, I meant that as a rhetorical question. I know little about the 80's aside from the fact the US had a good president (Reaganites) and Nintendo made a pretty important Video Game console.
Well, most decades tend to be stupid.
I mean, lets take a look at the past...
1910's -World War Freakin' 1
1920's -Woo! Stock market crash
1930's -They call him Adolf
1940's -Blood 'n gore
1950's -Korean War
1960's -Vietnam War
1970's -Err...
1980's -very stupid
1990's - :dunno:
2000's -Afghanistan, 9/11... Other stuff too
2010's -EBOLA!

There's always going to be somebody that says every president sucked.
But I like him. Even if I wasn't there, I know some stuff about him. I mean, I have a biography on him a few feet away from me on a shelf.
But I'd rather not argue about that here.

* Random quote

Of all the employments, working in the the brood pit was at once the most horrific and the most desirable. Horrific for what we saw occur day after day, and because of the very nature of the sessile native lifeforms. Desirable, because having been chosen to work in the pit, you were highly unlikely to be one of its victims.
~Captain Ulrik Svensgaard 'The Shadow Resonance'
