Currently, Cloth and Spidercloth have the same icon. How about we change the color of Spidercloth a bit to differentiate, e.g. make it whiter?

If they are different in "one tribe" branch - I guess that they should have different icons.

I don't know how it will work with trading/exchange in the future, but if there will be possible exchange cloth for spidercloth, I suppose that it shouldn't be changed. If not - go for changes. The main reason is that new players will not or will see the difference between cloths. It may be confusing why the same product can't be exchanged (don't change colour & don't allow trading0) or different products can be exchanged (change colour & allow trading).

"one tribe" is trunk now - so yes, they are still different wares, because the production costs are so different. We have the same ware for Barbarians and the Empire though.

I'll play with the icon then, thanks for your feedback face-smile.png

The new icon is in trunk now. Please let me know if it needs improvement.
