    That's a great idea Joe. I might have to try that.

    That's pretty cool. Glad you're having fun using them.

    Ramah: i notice on last page that you were asking if there's a way to re-order brushes, and there was no response as yet.. Yes there is. When in the preset manager, you can just click and hold, then drag it over to where you would like it to show up. I just figured that out myself recently, I got tired of putting so much effort into remembering what order I wanted to create brushes in, and thought "there's gotta be a better way" heh.

    (ok that came out slightly wrong).

    Ah, cool. Thanks for that CM.

    I'd tried dragging and dropping them in the normal Brush Prest panel of the Brush window but it was no go there. I'd never actually opened up that Preset Manager before. Works a treat. Thanks.

    Here is yet another one combining 4 or 5 of Ramah's shaded icons into a single city icon with coloring. There are a few places where the coloring is not all the way to the edges, but you have to zoom in an look hard to see them. Also, I added all the masks first and then put a layer under to color. What I should have done is to color each icon as I placed them, and then follow up with masking it out as a new icon was laid over top. It was much more painful to try to stay within the lines so to speak the way I did it lol... If anyone wants the GIMP brush, let me know...

    Truly amazing, thanks for making these available.

    I've started to work on a map using these icons, only the trees, mountains and hills are in yet, but I thought you might want to see the results so far.

    I'm totally new here and working on my first map. These look like they're going to make it possible; thank you so much!

    Edit: I should say I'm a long-time lurker, newb in the participation department.
