This is a simple utility that provides .bmp images of all buildings, trees and a whole lot of eye candy from the game. It is a very useful utility for modders who want to create new graphics using the age-old copy-and-paste technique. It can also be useful for making scenario intro bitmaps, if you want some units standing around on a map or something, which at least I have used a couple of times.
Instructions are superfluous as this is just a pack of images to be used for modding.
Two things could however be done to improve this utility. One, change the name to "All Bitmaps of All Buildings, Trees and Eye-candy" or something along those lines. Two, add the graphics from the trees that are currently not in this utility, namely jungle trees.
A very handy utility.
Even without those two fixes, it is still a great utility for those in need.

There are no bounds to the usefulness of this utility. The fact that all bitmaps of buildings are provided allows modders to create infinite permutations of cut and paste building graphics. Personally, I have used them in making bitmap images for the instruction menu of my custom scenarios. Also, modders can use the graphics for beta buildings that are included to add more diversity to the game using AGE2.
The graphics quality is top notch, and lots of eyecandy is also included, making it very complete. Instructions, though they go without saying, really, since there is no limit for uses of this utility, are still included.
This is a must have for any modder or scenario designer. Thanks Devestator!
