UPDATE2: the main user interface is generated from a relative small number of pictures. If anybody feel like helping to improve some (1-2 is good too) units or elements of terrain, that would be great too. On the left you can see the "tile" images i'm talking about. They're also available if u click on download.
UPDATE: a new splash screen would be also nice (actually the background of the initial windows, see picture 2). I think it's a much smaller work, and maybe some of you might find it challanging. Anybody interests?
I would like to ask if any of the talented artists here is interested in helping us improve the most popular open source strategy game, Freeciv. The developers works hard on it, and now it's code is better than ever, but unfortunatelly we only have a few artists. So while the game is really exciting and challanging, and we have a nice and friendly player and developer communtiy, the GUI is a bit deprecated. On of our contributors have started to work on a 3D version of the icons (w/ blender), but alone it's a big job. You can see examples of his work here: http://freeciv.org/news/y2003/blender_demo/ . We'd need graphics many units, if u need a complete list you can find them here: http://freeciv.org/manual/trident/game-units.html . So if anybopdy has some spare time to create 1-2 of these units in 3D and in a similar style like Lukas started, please feel free to send us that, we'll be more than happy! Together we could make not only a damn good strategy game, but even a very nice one :)
