I was reviewing the multi-page thread that spanned several years and it seems there were some questions regarding the quality, resolution, dpi, format, etc., as it pertained to the production of the original file.
I would have scanned the original tiles directly into photoshop at no less than 300 dpi. The tiles themselves probably weren’t 300 dpi (or whatever the equivalent is for that style of print). I don’t know what it’s called where the printing process produces those faint, round “pixels” that I remember seeing in color comics in the newspaper when I was young, but my understanding is that was the limit that I could scan those tiles in.
When I made this I didn’t know anything about vector art, so all the custom icons for convoys, bases, etc., I would have made an effort to keep those high resolution as well, but they’re certainly not vector.
Text should all be vectorized in the original document. If you install the included font you can modify it to your heart’s content.
I don’t remember why I added a number to the Caspian Sea. I never did get to play the game much at the time so I probably thought that it was an oversight that there was no number there, and it didn’t occur to me that you couldn’t go there.
If you have any other questions I’ll be glad to provide information as I recall it. This was 8 years ago after all!
