Tiles list

Tiles and other graphics are placed in \data\gfx and in \data\gui directory. They are...

  • "Building_nameLevelStatus.png" for the buildings.

Building_name: should be barracks, defencetower, hospital, inn, market, pool, racetrack, school, swarm; the stone wall works in a different way);

Level: indicates the level of the building shown in the tile (Level = game level-1, so a level 1 school has a Level value of 0);

Status: indicates status of building (Status = B0 means built, B1 means built and damaged, B2 means built and seriously damaged, C0 means under construction);

NOTE: After Status you could find a r that means that this is a overlay tile that colours the tile with same name lacking of final r with the team color;
