Just unzip in your Mods folder >>> The Files

EDIT : If you want the water tile >>> The File

(one advice : the png used for the parchment and the fog of war are the same. So just adjust the brightness in the options for a better result)

Ooooh! Looks really good.

 

EDIT: This looks awesome ingame. Suprised Stardock didn't play around with doing this. It REALLY enhances the cloth map, imo. This is one of those mods everyone's gonna have to get.

This deserves a

Looks great.. does it slow things down?  Cloth map is only good way I can play right now, can't afford to have it slowed down any.

I've just replaced the old files. The water tile is just the old one "colored" and with a bit of noise (GIMP FTW !)

The parchment tile is just the old one with the Filter that let your work looks like .. cloth (with a bit of tinkering after that, one or two gaussian blur of 1 pix, a little more noise, the parchment a little more satured, nothing difficult, really.)

This is awesome!  Now only if someone would create a mod that will add the City HUD to the cloth map.

What do you mean ? You can see the city HUD AND using my mod. It's just replaced files.

Basically I want everything on the City Card floating above the City.  So that just looking at the map I can get a lot of info at a glance.

Ok. I'll see what I can do. But I'm not sure it's still exposed to xml files. And I didn't find any python script file in the elemental folders.

NetNomad, vieuxchat is not an a la carte mod maker. You could put things in a little more of a request rather than MAKE ME MODS NOW >

I guess I was a bit terse... I did not my mean it as a request.  Sorry if it sounded like a demand.  It was more of wishful thinking.   I kinda think it is something SD should have done anyway.
