PNGs are far better than jpegs for resolution - use them for game resources, etc; but there's no reason to use them for screenshots or web use photos.

Exactly, PNGs are only supposed to be used for displaying maps (you can have much larger maps without the huge file size associated on JPG... for instance, a map that's 4096x4096 with only a few colours is ~800kb, but a JPG of the same size and same image is ~1.8MB), signs and whatnot. Same for game resources.

Just don't use them for showing SC4 pictures.

Agree 100%.  And if you need help on how to figure out how to compress the images when you save them in JPG format, just take a look @ my signature on how to do it. ;)

Take a look @ the JPG Compression tutorial.  A must read to help cut away unnecessary file size from 500k+ images to help dial-up users out.

Alright, back on topic with some properly compressed JPG files (less than 150KB for the entire update). ;)

The long-awaited RHW-4/Road at-grade intersections are here . . .







Back with even more later . . .

Um Alex, you messed up the NB texture. :P  You need to flip it. ;)

Oh and guys those are the first of the new textures I've created that you'll get to see. ;)  But all in due time. ;)
