Hi there.

I just had the Idea of a very minimalistic Graphicsstyle for Widelands. And I just started making it.

Sorry but to me this style of graphics looks like placeholders awaiting more realistic images. I've seen similar terrain graphics mainly in games in pre-alpha that really need a lot more graphical love, that's why this does not look like an improvement to my eyes. Widelands is lucky to have a great terrain rendering system which should definitely not be simplified in my opinion.

Its totally fine that you dont like that. But since its not going to replace any of your files I dont see a reason to not do it. I like it very much and this is why I want to do it.

You mean, as a possible alternative style, so users can choose their preferred terrain theme in the options menu? I'd not be opposed to this then… (edit: as long as the current one stays the default theme)

Yes of course as an optional Style you can install like a mod. I do not intend to replace any official content in the main release.

Nice practical style, I'd possibly chose this option. One can distinguish the triangles better...
