timberdragon if you can improve the graphics on it no problem.

I think the weak hotspot looks better and fits in with the current style better then the main hotspot. Personally i think you could make the weak hotspot into the main and then make a similar style but a little smaller with a little less red and different contour for the weak hotspot. That way the main hotspot would look as though the magma vent is reaching the surface, while the weaker one is a smaller vent and deeper down to the magma.

Should we send the designs fonts?, The method is not working with insurance but I do not work with Photoshop,
only use Paint and Gimp 2.5 in regard to Sprites.

For more complex models used Milkshape3d which created the 3D model with their respective textures.
then assigned the position deceada, I capture the image, I cut, Resize, color retouch again
in some cases add bump mapping and go back to tweak the sprite taking away the edges.

In the case of hotspot and would have to send weakhotspot contour drawing and
the color palette that would be the source design in my opinion

The new hotspot is much better. I've only tried quickly ingame and will have to check more in depth by adjusting the parameters.

The design files (sources) of the graphics are still missing.

I send the hotspot have corrected if they like., and
I also sent a new weakhotspot hope you enjoy it.

I read somewhere on the implementation of new aquatic units.

I make some prototypes terrestrial and aquatic, I would like to know that new units needed.

Hi Cristian, thank you for the proposal. In the screenshot, I like the first one. It would be better if it could be less deep. It also needs to be smaller to be only slightly visible below the magma pump. With a small slope, it could spill a bit below the magma pump to give a clue wether it's a weak hotspot or not.

As the game is GPL including of course the graphics, we also need the design files for the hotspots in order to include them.

Would you like to improve them ? 

TimberDragon likes the idea too. If you cannot work on it, he is jumping around like a madmen to do them. :)

In attachment a screen-shot from the new hotspot graphics - on the right the weak hotspot.
The weak hotspot is already much better than before.

I also show them in the screen-shot with a magma-pump on top - which IMHO is not so nice.

feb, can you comment please?
If approved, I am able to commit the new graphics.

Hello Cristian,
I tested the patch, it works.
The graphics for the hotspot are quite nice, the one for the weak hotspot not so much. Can you make a different design for it?

Well I send a collaboration 2 magmapump resources simply are volcanic orifices, which can replace the images and weakspot hotspot.
