    For the challenge that we had a few months ago I raided Google images and then cut out the backgrounds. I'll see if I have the originals still or if I just shrunk them all for the map and tossed 'em.

    Double-post, c'est la vie. I have 52 images that I took straight from Google images for a map I did a few months back. They have not been "iconified" so the backgrounds are still there but you can enjoy cutting them out (well I certainly didn't but you might). Some are photographs, some are drawings, some are 3d-ish (maybe for a game or something). If I ever get the time then I might go and draw these up by hand to look more "mappy" but who knows.

    zip1 = 2 chickens, flax plant, necklace, chair, rug, beaver pelt, bluestone, 2 breads, 3 caravels, peat, coal, 2 cotton plants

    zip2 = cow, crab, yarn, fish chart, flax, food pyramid, olive branch, cow, white fur, glass, grapes, olives, ham, hemp plant, herbs, sheep, anvil

    zip3 = lobster, crystal ball and wands, books, bottles, sea fish chart, vegetables, rope, sheep, silver bars, spices, gems, gold bars, more silver bars, pendant, swords and armor, totems, cheeses, wheat

    I have no problems with a large list.
    Drawing 0r redrawing everything will give it a consistent look.

    They will be simple drawings, and I'll make a b/w version and add simple colors to one version.

    I'll make them as vector art 1st. then create PNG files from that. Keeping them consistent in size as well. The if someone wants to take the whole lot of them they could create unique backgrounds for them.. say buttons, or wood blocks, or just a beveled square or octagon.

    I'll start work tonight, and work on them as I get a free moment throughout the upcoming weeks.

    Feel free to keep adding to the list and adding reference.

    Here is sample of the resources listed.
    One page is rougher than the other, one I started looking at reference.. try to guess which is which.

    Anyway, if you guys think these will work... keep in mind they will be inked so some of the shading will be gone, then I will keep working on them.

    I think they'll work out just peachy. More than that probably

    Can´t wait for those icons, Devin. As it seems, there is really a need for them. I can't wait to show you my finished map with those icons. Im not sure if theres been a similiar challenge, but it could be an idea for one, something like "implementation of the resource icons".

    Devin, would like see fish, marble(stone variation), copper, dye and maybe tools and weapons. I could use not only natural resources, but also trade goods.
