Well, since we already did a ton of this, it would indeed be useful to ask Reaperrr about it.
Some iterations we went through, in the now-defunct Tiberian Dawn eXtended project:

(note that the purple in the water represent the animated water colours, fixed to have correct animations in C&C1. They'd need to be redone for RA1's palette scrolling animations though)

In the end, what stumped us in TDX were the filters used for shadows, the shroud, the movement flash etc. I figured those out a while ago, and may be able to reproduce 'em for new palettes now (if any devs read this, .mrf files are remap palettes), though I guess OpenRA doesn't use those at all anyway.

I don't mind. In fact I'd be a happy camper if someone made a full jungle/carribean tileset for OpenRA. If the TDX stuff helps, sure, feel free to use it.

Edit: 2/17/2014

Added and finished the Shorelines.

To Do:

- Hills
- Rivers
- Water Cliffs
- Debris
- Roads
- Shores
- Huts/Cottages
- Foliage
- Various .SHP's

About 80% complete

Note: Not all the shoreline tile pieces are shown in the image but you get the idea of what it will look like.

If a Jungle theater were made for RA95 I'd add it to my patch.

Some plants or trees could do justice

This looks great. Files created with https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/tree/b ... setBuilder will be compatible with both RA95 and OpenRA.

But couldn't it be added to RA95 since its pretty much the same?

I plan on finishing this tile set so we can have it implemented into RA & CNC, As soon as I get some time. Any tree,bush, or debris .SHP would be appreciated. I'll post whatever there is left to do on this thread which I believe is just the shorelines and bridges.

The easy part would be the vehicle debris (plane + vehicle), change the terrain color and if the debris color doesn't fit in, change it

I've actually done the debris already I had forgotten. But trees & various foliage would be helpful, and at that, ones with damaged or "burnt" frames to I guess, since jungles do burn.

I really do like this tileset! Will it be added to the existing openRA mods or be part of a new mod?
