for germans i think this is a good one:
flak towers (as we discussed earlier):

i think it could be 2x2 or 2x3 sized on its base, and maybe can produce AA and AT units ? :) or better would be to produce some special units like spies?

anyone would try to make an image for it?

i think very nice image concept, but i try to find more realistic idea for US, that was really on the battlefield, seems a little not fitting having 5-6 pentagons built in a battle :)

we can put it in as mapeditor unit tough when it is ready.

Fort knox is a gold repository not a real military base of operation. The Pentagon would do much better in my opinion.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

i read that fortnox was a military training facility during ww2 and a real military facility not like pentagon being a buro.

That is correct. However we were more talking along the lines of the military high command.
A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Pentagon should be a "unique" mid era tier unit, so that eliminates the problem of seeing double or too early.

ok we can put such "flavour" things later, here i am (as first task) looking for the "castle" unit from AOS, that you can build many and can be a fortification of your army

awesome!
i thought that roud flak could be a 2x2 based (like fort in aos)
and the big flak "fortress" could be 3x2

so germans could get 2

Removed signpost, lamposts, fence, and banana van roof from the image, and added team coloring with an occupied building version.

I noticed some windows were missing light.

About .xcf, not entirely sure how to do that.

After adding that shadow, I begin on Fort Knox, which according to a military site: was responsible for armored tatics, formation, and crew training during WW2.

Shadow version, attempt cutting the rest of the building out, and using the shadow on bottom layer for unoccupied img to see if that works, I don't feel like doing that after taking a Nation mandated test for colleges/ universities.

gimp: ok, no problem, but is that app let you make multiple layers? so u can send me only the shadow maybe?
also i thought moving the building a few pixels up so we can make shadow to the front too (as i remember other units have a little)
...
Shadow: i have checked and we have shadow in front in half of the tanks - while other half has only shadon on the left... i alspo saw man without shadow.

we should decide which is better and keep that as a rule, which is the better? attached few samples

M36 Jackson has the best shadow. I think light should generally go right to left in all Ao variants.

I think you should draw Russian mega building for now. I'd like for them to be published on google play at the same time.
