Toyland Lighthouse and Radio Antenna
I would like to ask whether there are any follow ups?
Will this fit in OpenGFX or OpenGFX+ or rejected?

this could be part of the temperate in toyland topic.
IMO, everything, which makes the map more toyish but doesn't hurt the eyes should go in.

Thanks for the templating :-).

or rocks (plainly) like that: http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?p=899336#p899336 ?

That looked better :-), perhaps gumdrops should be in snacks, but not in sprites.
Again, I think they should be exchanged i.e. rocky = green, rough = red, as players will recognize the red rough tiles as in original TTD graphics easily, avoiding confusion.
After reading your post in http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=38122&p=899346#p899346
about the clustered distribution of tiles, I think your argument is also right. Maybe your arrangement is better. So never mind.

It is possible. Every climate can have its own.
We can be better than the original :-) This is one of the places which we can easily become better.
Generally, every sprite can be unique for each climate, whether it's in the original base set that way or not.
What is NOT possible, is conditionally change the look of one sprite within ONE climate, if that is not the case within the TTD base set.

Attached a small impression how it looks ingame - which is IMHO quite nice.
The light house uses no animation colours currently; I'm not sure whether it needs it, but maybe the fire animation is worth a try for the orange bubble.
Also I noted: by default, toyland climate doesn't generate light houses or radio towers; they can be built in the SE, though.

Nice stacker stuff ;-)
I was thinking of city buildings with different color per floor like it.
Please Google 'Stacker Toy'.
-> Inspiration for more stuff, new objects?
Hmm, we should open a new feature for opengfx+.
A suggestion for antenna is to include a head like the one here:
but + 2 antennas on top of the head.
Please could you give a try to a taller lighthouse as it seems shorter than 'normal' lighthouse? ... I made an effort on your own one (maybe I messed some action colors on the road). I cut top parts by 2 rows and last one too (so animation isn't huge) and added an extra basement floor. (Maybe it needs some pixel tweaking.)

- % Done changed from 100 to 30
The topic of this issue kinda changed... so it's not 100% done ;-)
I like the light house in toyland. I'm not so sure about the very straight communications tower, it's IMHO missing a bit sophistication; but I need to look at it ingame, too, I guess
