Wonderful graphics those tiles have, but one cannot see where the rivers run in Tropical forest or in Rain forest. I keep having to right click those tiles to find the river tiles in South America, so I can plan my towns alongside them for the benefits.

See the attached picture, that area is riddled with rivers, but can you see them? I can't, except for a few odd hints.

  • My realm is in the river riddled Amazon/Brazilian area.

    One rather simple and quick solution would be simply making rivers appear on top of the forest. Downside of this will be compromising the isometric effect, it surely would't look quite as good as in 2D. Rivers will run over tree trunks at some places. But at least they will be visible.

    (Currently, trees can be seen growing on the river, or rather they could be, had the foliage not obscured it;)

    So it should be slightly better.

     
  • A rather quicker and simpler solution would be to return to the images of 0.8.2, where this problem did not exist.
    And the artist who made the new one might then redo the improvements considering this issue.

     
  • However, I tried using the old pictures, and thought the rivers are indeed again visible, the resulting image is unpleasant, as they clash with the rest of the landscape.

    It's pretty bad in Wetland Forests, too.

    Michael added new autogenerated forest tiles with clearings for rivers in git.0e6eddae. Setting to Pending until next release.
