I have opened this because i see there is need for upgradeing some unit appearances and there are also great artists doing it ! :)

so here is my suggestion of units that need some rework in AOS (capaign units mostly)

True. Those 3 towers are worst images in whole game.

Please add the spanish units to the list, something is very off with their heads. Guillotine joke not intended.

I forgot to say this - I corrected 2 white pixels and head a little, and it's already in.

i hates gatlin+flame+barrage so i made this quickly, can be further polished or totally remade but will do better than currents temporarily.

I changed the colours of tower roofs (along with TDS towers)- just to make them different, so it's visible at first glance.

Edit: I wasn't clear enough. My question is - are they distinct enough?

Hi,
since its my bday tday im busy and prolly wont do morem till tomorrow.

i finally finished the horse based on endrus version thats based on my change.
Does it need TeamColor?

I dislike the tower color changes. i think the visual difference that already is there should be set more focus on instead.

Patroid

(the image endru called fixed had alot of random black pixels and outlines that do not fit the AOS standard that we set wich
was 1 px wide 'clean' black border)

Not for long.

I plan to add them to normal buildlist (as agreed in viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5484&sid=a575666126 ... d99bc9c5c6) along with few tower upgrades.
I wanted to make them more distinct before (especially Guard/Crossbow/Longbow).
Just take a look at that :

yes, but currently only mapeditor things
es you can color those, but we also need eg. a ballista in it so some other things too not only roof color distinction.

eg. ballista could have no roof at all but a ballista in top

Something like attached image I assume.

I actually posted this tower images in hope someone would give some idea how to make them different in a better/additional way.
Especially I have completely no idea about crossbow/longbow tower (well, name could be changed).

My plan is to have 8 basic towers:
Tier 1 - 4 turns
Gate Tower - looks like tower build on gate (with wall joining - I'm trying to make it), has no attack, but fortress-like garrison (2cap, 6-10 heal) - frontal
Guard Tower - like it is - basic, cheap attacking - back tower
Tier 2 - 6 turns
Crossbow Tower - stronger attack, better hp - frontal tower
Longbow Tower - higher range, less hp - back tower
Tier 3 - 8 turns
Fortress Tower - like it is - good defence, good range - anit siege(burning), frontal
Shooting Tower - much lower hp, better range, 3-4 shots, lower damage in each shot - anti-infantry, back
Tier 4
Ballista Tower - higher hp, area damage! - anti-infantry, frontal
Cannon Tower - like it is - anti siege, back

Though the image is good, it's not appropriate since it like it's build using concrete. I suggest making it look like the fortress with it looking like it's made out of bricks.

With small changes to look close to other towers 3rd ballista image will fit nice.

Hmmm. Now it looks like it's made out of Steel. I suggest, instead of square like bricks, make it rectangle. While the pattern is, instead of lining up the vertical lines, position the vertical lines on the middle of other horizontal lines.

Idk how to add picture so I'll use the keys on my keyboard as example.
