Has anyone ever made some distant art like the dark stilloette of mountians? No detail just a dark outline.

Making Custom DistantArt is very much like making custom terrain textures. You won't need a custom gamesys because there is no material property needed.

The originals are in fam.crf in the skyhw folder.

The maximum size is 256x256, and you're limited to 256 colours, but you can use any palette you want.

For the actual drawing, you'll probably need to brighten your monitor so you can see the subtle difference between pure black (the sky) and dark grey (the terrain). Don't worry about smoothing the edges of the mountains, the game does that itself.
