I would rather avoid, this being a competition. I would suggest to just keep track of participants and their tiles for now - seems like Willem is already onto it  :D
I am sure we will fill the ranks as time goes on.

The artwork is not decided yet... We are discussing on Discord taht maybe we can mix artworks... I just suggested something very basic that amy allow anyone to create tiles with no graphic background...

Still waiting for more people to join in.

Pretty interesting idea  :) I like it

Just a thought here about art:

What if we look for one freelance artist that is willing to help us with all 72 tiles in BGG or Fiverr.

Each forum member involved in the project will designs the tile layout (including some crazy stuff), and each forum member actually pay the artist for their tile. Some artist online can charge between 10 to 30 USD per one high resolution illustration.

The more crazy tile design is, the more expensive it will be, obviously. I think a project like this can be a around 600 to 1000 USD for an freelancer artist (with no commercial rights and weird stuff like that), and considering that a lot of graphical components will be repeated (walls, basic roads, trees, grass) could make the process more cost efficient.

I know that managing this can be a total nightmare, but...  8)

Nope... This is just a way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Carcassonne as fans...

A crazy initiative.  ;)

I think they allow us to make our own tiles as long as we don't try to sell anything to anyone. That wouldn't be the case with this. It would be purely a vanity project for ourselves.

For example, this is your opportunity to create C2-ish tiles with a less flubber-y green, if that pleases you. :o

I will just quickly restate my opinion/idea on what the goal should be - that is to allow each participant to make the tile in their preferred style (by that I mean their personal style, not C1/C2), in order to express themselves. That is what I believe CarcassonneCentral Edition shoud be.
Of course if Meepledrone creates some kind of system for making artwork and some people opt to use it instead of making the art in some other way, that is nice as well.
I just wouldn't go the route of codifying a single style for this crazy project. Will the end result look little incoherent that way? Sure, but it will be a true representation  and expression of the community.  :orange-meeple:

Then I will like a fusion of C1 and C2 into a new C3  >:D

Sorry, late update!

Yes, i think it is best to leave it to each member to do it in their preferred style. We'll end up with a mixture of C1, C2, exCel, etC ;)

We can explore things like a freelance artist at a later stage, as this would be tricky enough i think hahaha
I'll make sure to have a list of tiles and will start assigning tiles.

The completed tiles/art can be returned to me by email, and i'll keep us all updated here. Depending on the amount of people who want to be in the project, i'll assign multiple tiles to some people. And i'll keep some tiles open for people who join later.

As the art style is free to the person, the only thing i would ask for is a square image, and keep in mind that any details you want to put in have to be clear enough to be seen in a small image, otherwise your hard work can get lost ;)

Great Willem!
I signed up for CCFF splitter, but I am willing to take some more if needed (I suspect some duplicates of multicopy tiles as FRFR or FFRR will be leftover).

I would add that any art on the edge of tiles needs to be (or adequately match up to) a Road, a City, or a Field in order to retain compatibility. While the art and colors and everything else may change, the tile edges still need to be able to line up.

Yes, indeed.
Everyone will get a tile configuration assigned. So they have got a base layout that they can then play with.

But the roads, cities and fields are predefined to keep it compatible with all other tiles. We'll use a standard base game config for it :)

Any preferred dpi for the images: 300dpi or 600dpi?
