There has been version of hexemplio (also toonhex, but that's outdated) available through modpack installer for some time. Main problem I'm not yet proposing it for inclusion to freeciv is the duplication of city gfx from amplio2 just for getting them placed correctly. Tileset format should have separate offset for city sprites so that it would not be necessary to include it to the gfx itself.

Our supplied tilesets currently are:

- trident, isotrident, hex2t, and isophex for low-end devices (low memory usage), one for each topology
- amplio2 for better look, without oriented units, on square topology (iso)
- cimpletoon with oriented units take most memory of them all, square topology (iso)

What we don't currently provide, are equivalents of amplio2 and cimpletoon for hex topology (I don't consider it essential to cover both hex and isohex, as there's no big gameplay difference between the two)

Now that GriffonSpade has created amplio2hexbig tileset, I'd create new tilesets based on that (combinining our existing tilesets and amplio2hexbig). At the moment I wouldn't take amplio2hexbig as is. For example it contains almost exact copy of amplio2 units.png, so I'd rather reuse amplio2 units.png than increase size of the ditribution with the copy.

Working names: "hexemplio" (based on amplio2 units) & "toonhex" (based on cimpletoon units)
