Core samples icon
« on: September 30, 2010, 08:15:40 PM »
We have 3 types of samples up until now in MCO: Ground samples, Core samples and Rock samples.

Ground samples are picked-up by a player simply by hand. They look like this:

The thing is - the core and the ground sample icons look the same.
Every core sample I have ever seen looked like this:

As you can see - the core samples are long rod-like. That's becouse they are taken from a drill sampler.
The difference is only graphical, but firstly: it's more real that way, and secondly: it make's easier to distinguish different sample types.

For that matter, it would also be cool and practical if rock samples would look like they are a part of a bigger rock.
