I've been playing TripleA for rather a long time now and consider it one
of the most entertaining and intelligent games on the internet.
I would like to make a contribution in the future by making some American civil war maps. I have
asked an artist I know to make some unit icons, for a fair price, but he has generously offered to make the icons for free. He has recently completed the first icon, that of a Confederate Cavalry unit, which I would very much like to share with you here.
He also makes very beautiful fantasy and game maps, which you can find here.
if you have ever used a program like paint.net, photoshop, or gimp, or maybe even regular paint, it allows you to "Change Hue" of an image
hue basically means you can change the color of an image, from any color to any other color
the only thing that doesn't change, is any grayscale (black, white, grey, etc.).
thats why it is better to make images in color, then change them to black and white later...
you can go from color to black and white in 1 second, but going from black and white to color is basically impossible
