Bug Description

Forgive me if this is intended to set the different tribes apart, but I have been wondering for a while why the atlantean's resource signs are tinted red. To me, the added color just makes it harder to see which resource is actually available. Looking at tribes/[tribename]/resi_coal1 for instance we can see that the atlantean signs are slightly tinted compared to barbarians and empire. Is this intentional?

PS. I wouldn't mind if the tribes have different signs they use, more fitting their unique style, but I'm not sure if this is the best way.

As an example, the same mountain checked by both barbarian and atlantean geologists.

Instead of fiddling around with tinted signs,
we only need to decide, whether we like
uniform resource indicators for all tribes,
(then copy the files over from the Barbarian to the Atlanteans)
or a different set for each tribe.
(then make new ones)
This a matter of half an hour for creating the pngs.
 I cannot see a point in doing them in 3D with blender.

2c: I like different resource indicators and for the "stone" resource it also makes quite some sense (as each tribe gets out another ware from this resource). Maybe the forms could be mixed up to make them easier to understand and distinguish though.

For now, with bzr rev #6361, I have set all the resource markers to be the same for all tribes.
I will work up some possible tribal-oriented markers soon for discussion in the Graphics Forum.
