I thought I'd have a go, it's not perfect but is this along the right lines for railings?

Hm; the perspective isn't quite right. This adopts a top-down perspective--which would have worked in previous Telepath games--but Telepath Tactics uses a projected perspective. You'd need every railing post to go straight up and down, more like this:

Sadly, no. There are times when the player needs to sail between islands, and making those moments occur via cut scenes using a single background is way the heck cheaper and easier than commissioning an entirely new tileset.

Since ship tiles won't be commissioned, I at least know I won't be wasting my time by trying to create my own.
