Whatever method you guys decide on, can you make multiple graphical
sprites possible for a single terrain match?
Even with 81 sprites most of the terrain will just be coastal corners,
straights and (especially) deep ocean floor. Just having 2-3 sprites
for these (5-6 for deep ocean) would make a big improvement to the
If you're going to be making 81 sprites whats an extra 10-20 in
artistic and memory requirements.
Sorry to always keep bringing this up, I'm guessing it would take a
big overhaul to the graphics code.
