This was found by Parasit:

The only shot we have of that building. I ended up drawing a similar building.


Use freely in RttR if you feel like it.

I like that one, great work, have u used the original pal5.bbm or the pal5.act? :D

Yes, only slightly modified, shouldn't have effect on regular buildings.

My own modified palette has each color different in the palette so I can convert image to full color and back without losing original palette index information.

ah, very cool, and as I saw, you only changed the "real" fortress right? therefore we can use shadows etc from the other one :)
Now I would just like to have a .bmp file xD

Download IrfanView, makes conversions like that very easy. The PNG already has everything you need, correct palette etc.

It is just a Fortress manipulated, because the original building looks just like that! However I don't know if the X, Y, Width & Height are in the size the game stores them as the source graphic wasn't directly from the game.

Too bad it doesn't support uncompressed PBM variant of LBM (only compressed ILBM variant), if it did it would make very easy to convert textures from LBM to PNG and vice versa :)

I'll probably do some further edits, there are some details that catch my eye.

Hello :)

I found a little detail which is missing in your version.

In the "original" picture the fortress has an wodden door, in your version there is only the "frame" for that door.

But I have to say: awesome work :)


Merri am 18.08.2011 16:57 #7968


I've noticed the door, but I'm not sure if it is a good idea: regular Fortress has a steel gate, and I think it might work better than a door :)

oh, that's true!
a gate is more stable than a door -> door is better in a fortress :)

Btw.: which settlers version is shown at that screenshot?

As far as I can tell the first screenshot is from a development version of original Die Siedler 2.
