Updated versions of the white tubes, with slightly subdued bluish tones.

Very nice. Going to get these in the game now.

Could use an underground set as well to differentiate from the surface tubes. ;)

Should we also have the Surface Roads ?
It was made to allow trucks way between mines and colony.
(even if I've never payed with trucks in Outpost)

Definitely think we should include surface roads in there. Though that'll be a later addition -- actually it should be somewhere in the v0.8.x series of releases (mine facility updates, truck pathing and routing, etc.)

Roads should be fairly simple, assuming they are just going to be pavement and maybe some lines.

I'll start work on the UG versions soon(tm).

Well, I meant for these to be underground versions, but do with them what you will. Also open to feedback...

Now just to replace those underground structures. :) :)

Gotta say that I really like these tubes.  Look like something constructed.  The originals looked like inflated balloons.

Some adjustments to the tubes, with recent material changes and to match the new style.

These are the above ground tubes. I've included two variants here, which primarily differ in the support structure. I've also included variations with a dark and light end cap, and blue vs. yellow lighting. I'm partial to the lighter end cap myself, as I think it provides more/better contrast.

I really like these. They're simply nice to look at.

Thanks, Hooman. :D

All right, Leeor. How about this one?

Here's the first attempt at the surface shaft. I patterned it after Goof's suggestion in one of the other threads. (http://forum.outpost2.net/index.php/topic,5976.msg86017.html#msg86017 (http://forum.outpost2.net/index.php/topic,5976.msg86017.html#msg86017))

Wow, that looks really cool.

It all just fits so nicely. There's a very definite overall style to these graphics. None of it ever seems to look out of place with the others.

Took some tweaking and a bit of iterative trial and error but I think we're hitting that sweet spot where we've got them looking pretty good and popping off the terrain just enough to provide depth.

Really digging the updated graphics, it's exactly what I was hoping for when I started this project!

First pass at a comm tower.

Looks good! A little monotone in terms of coloration.

It first occurs to me that it might be a bit short but when you compare it to the scale of the other new structures it's actually a pretty large tower. Definitely like it.
