Mog will probably need to look at how these would be committed/what the WML would be (if you don't already know how to do so).
I really got problems with the WML stuff. That would be nice if someone else does this. The chasm transistions are a mess to me, and i'm not abel to build a chasm tile out of these by myself, so if i want a chasm background, i have to copy it from an editors screenshot :(
Yes, I had this problem as well when working on the cave river.

I also found that unless you want stone bridges to hang in the air while zigzagging, the normal type of bridge isn't going to cut it - need a full out new tile with chasm transitions so you can add supports for the bridge descending into the darkness.

I've finished one set. Well I'm not sure if the transitions fit each variation of the cave ground tile. A lava set of these is being worked on.

cool, but with a problem. unless im wrong about this, you should probably widen the bridge to the south.

I just thought the same, but then I remembered that we can adjust the vertical position of units with the "unit_height_adjust" attribute.

I've always considered bridges over chasms to be *rickety* wooden bridges.

Flying horse :lol:
Well we have a problem, but i think widen the bridge would still be wrong, because the units would stand towards one side of the bridge. Or if i move the whole bridge down, and draw new transitions, units would stand more to the south-east-side of the bridge, because the north-west transition have to be stretched.
If this is possible

it would save me the the work of redrawing, and units would stand in the middle.

Me too, :) that's why a set of my "wooden prototype" (you can see it in my former posts) is planed, after the lava set is once done.

I will leave it to mog and Kestenvarn to deal with the issues of committing this, and making it game-useable. Graphically speaking, I think this looks great - I extend a hearty congrats to musketaquid.

there is a way to adjust a unit's height on a given hex.... that's already done for castles.

not sure how it works though
