Titi is actually making a faction about ancient egyptians.  In answer to your question, no, but I can see why you might think they are.  In fact, a large number of historians are trying to link the aztecs and incas to the egyptians.  The reason is they found tobacco in a sarcophagus of a mummy, which only grew at the time in the americas.  But the similarities in the peasantry's dress could be just coincidental, the climates pretty much dictated white loincloths to be good, non-exertive clothing.

BTW:  Nice palms!  Those go great with your egyptian faction.

Nice Titi. Finding a name will be hard though with all the abstract ones that fit this taken (topic, desert, etc;). What about 'Amazonia'?

Oasis 

The desert is an ocean
in which no oar is dipped. 

On this ocean, the Bedu go where they
please and strike where they please.

This is the way the Bedu has
always fought.

...I long for the vanished
gardens of Cordoba.

Both nile and oasis are fine.  I like 'oasis' because it is not specific to the nile river region.  It could be southern spain, as in cordoba, the middle east, or polynesia.

There is a very interisting plugin for gimp! Its called Resynthesizer and it speeds up creating similar looking and tileable ground tiles very much!!

Anyone has feedback for me? What do you think of the ground textures? I'm still not very happy with them, but my family says they are good. What do you think?

I looked at Mediterranean using default map Big River.gbm

Everything from the color of the water to the mossy rocks and textures look very nice.

The secondary grass surface texture was used quite a bit by the map designer for Big River.gbm - this looks good when using forest/evergreen tilesets because of the minor color variations between grass and secondary grass surfaces. The deep orange colored secondary grass of Mediterranean does not integrate well with the primary brown/tan grass surface texture - at least on this map. I noticed the same thing on wciows Swamp tileset where his snowflake/fractal secondary grass texture repeat often.

This isn't a problem on maps where secondary grass textures are used infrequently. In fact, there really isn't a problem with the color variations on this tileset or swamp. The problem is, we need more mappers making tileset specific maps which showcase these unique texture features to their full visual advantage.

Nice artwork and colors titi.

Here it is: currently called tileset mediterran:
http://www.titusgames.de/tilesets/mediterran2.7z (~4,4 MB)

I will probably rename it to something different when it will be included in the megapack v5.
( Hint for the mappers: The ugly texture called custom5 or whatever is also set to something useful in this tileset.
I will try to add somethings for the other tilesets too if the mappers like it and start to use it.  )

Another awesome tileset Titi.

I think the first ground texture needs a little less contrast to help it blend better.

Sounds good to me. If you have time to add C5 textures to old tilesets then do it - but there aren't many mappers so those textures may never be used.

These are very cool pics! Is something like this possible with the gae editor now or did you made it manually!
This is a big help for mappers!
