The rampart will be released again under a free license, so there is no need for you to change your graphics. Regarding the stone textures I can
only recognize, if I see it. You can tell from the textures name, as well: all my texture filenames contain the "_us" tag.
I know how hard it is to do 2D graphics using textures and I do not want you to change your work.
For 3D this is a different thing in my eyes, because there textures can be changed in a more comfortable way.
live long and prosper, Uta.
