it's not about space - it's about lossless vs lossy compression (which is about space but in a different context) and when to use them

jpgs -> photos (lossy as you don't notice it)
gifs/png -> everything else - particularly line work, logos, and images with few colours (eg euo screenshots) - lossless compression - ie NO artifacts

Everything is about size, space, and load time when dealing with dialup.

dialup... that still exists? And they CHARGE FOR IT?

That's like paying to listen to AM radio! Or paying to watch basic TV! We're not in the early 90's anymore, people!

Back to the actual topic of this thread...

Renovated my house. Still needs shore tiles around the edges.

That's not a food merchant as it says Flood. I believe that's his own personal master of disaster dispenser.

Sorry, I am prejudice against the letter "L" apparently. But still, i'd give my privates for food dispensers in my house... well, maybe just the left one.

Possibly the most expensive renovation in EUO's history. I think i spent about 300 addy coins on it. X-D

I really should just make maps... or lobby for cheaper IKEA. The tiles are worth more than the house.

That's were it'd be cool to have containers look like different things than just mimics. I'd love to have one look like a bookcase for my Books/Tomes chest.

Imagine a container looking like water holding all your fish. You could really have a nice house and fully functional too. We need a refridgerator pic.

Hi Kendal, you should post a picture of it here for posterity.

I was going to go for an island/beached ship theme but:

1) House isn't large enough to have an decent looking island - I'd only have a small strip of water surrounding it.
2) Mountain tiles are prohibitively expensive. They're like 3-4 times dearer than the forest tiles. Even having a small number of them made it as expensive as having walls of forest.

I wonder if egg would be willing to redevelop IKEA and add more tiles. Something for the suggestions box.
