RoundSquare Tileset (Trident modified to look good)

This looks like a good place to post about the RoundSquare tileset that I've made for use in the LT games.

A 30x30 tileset is great for viewing these large maps, but unfortunately Trident graphics are UGLY and make my eyes bleed.
I replaced or modified nearly every terrain graphic to give a crisper, cleaner, easier-on-the-eyes set of graphics that make looking at the strategic map a pleasure, instead of a pain.

Here is an example image from LT45.
As you can see, the Units and Cities are still Trident graphics, but the terrain is much more readable!
I broke up the Hills/Forests/Mountains so that it's easier to see where tiles begin and end without having to impose the ugly grid-lines. 
The rounded contours of the coastline graphics give the name to the Tile Set.

You may have also noticed that I changed the Tile yield graphics to show "pips" instead of numbers.  I find this easier to read without cluttering up the landscape with text.  Bright green is for food surplus from a tile, red means that tile costs food to work.

I am also trying to keep it up to date with the addition of new units, finding or creating suitable graphics for the special units added to the game.
I added the Square-Rigged Caravel yesterday:

Yeah, I thought it was a better idea to use a PAST game for an illustration of RoundSquare, rather than a current one like LT51 wink.
I made a map of all of Green Team's land shortly before I had to depart that game.  It showed a nice variety of terrain and action.
