I think it is beautiful and perfectly usable, althou some roads are not very clear. I still prefer much the hex2t, as you know. IMHO it is more clean and easier to use.
HOwever, with this new ampliohexbig tileset there are 3 issues:
1. It can only be used with HEX-ISO maps (and not with HEX-NonISO maps, such as GT02)
2. If we set a game with HEX-ISO map, this tileset is the only viable option, cause ISO-HEX tileset is ugly and unclear. So, you can't choose, and with small displays (<1200x800) this new tileset is impossible to use cause you can't play seeing only 30-40 tiles in one glance.*
3. Many registered players will not bother download it and install it when they discover they don't like iso-hex tileset. They will just idle.
* when I played most of my LT and GT games I played with a 1920x1200 screen (yep!) and sometimes I felt I couldn't see enough tiles for a decent strategic view even with Trident tileset (maybe the smallest ever).
