Ok, used some sprites from adjacent topic, i have done these terrains:
Cool! But I think it would be nicer, if OXC could handler larger sprites, instead of downscaling them. Most people have more than 320x240 pixels on screen. And most original art could use some retouch for higher resolution too. That should be a priority of OXC devs ;)

I think I can safely speak also for all other OXC and OXCE devs when I say that this is the absolute bottom of our priorities.

Hand art is way easier when I'm limited to fewer pixels. I find the end result looks just fine. We don't need or want more pixels.

What about converting graphics to simpler formats, like those in Wesnoth? That would promote modding. Say on the first run OXC could dump all data to PNG, WAV and CSV, and then uses these files. Now modding would be as easy as opening CSV in a spreadsheet app. That way supporting HD-graphics would be a matter of adding support to blitting routine.

Modders already use PNG, and there are very easy to use utilities that convert original resources to GIF/PNG too.

Modders already use WAV, and all original sound effects are already in WAV format too. They are packed in an archive (CAT), but it can also be easily extracted using a tool (not that you would need that for anything really).

Modders already use YAML, and all vanilla rules are already in YAML too, no conversion needed.

No, if you really want you could today load 2x bigger sprites to game and it would not crash, but problem lay in other place, offset.
Game is full of magic numbers that fit current graphic size and completely do not work with any other size. And adding arbitrary sizes will be hell of a work to do.

Hope one day you will get to refactor it. Would love to see a Diablo mod with original sprites, instead of downscaled

The X-Com Files.
The terrain was actually made by Dioxine for Piratez, but hasn't been used yet.

Something I started working on today. Not sure if I'll finish it; it was agonizing enough getting it to look good just for north and south rotations.

I worked on these a couple years ago and started building out a mod. The idea was laser weapons that used power capacitors, then after elerium they would be unlimited. I have floor and hand graphics as well, I believe, if there's any interest.
Did Oftcrash upload the HandOb & FloorOb images for these cool looking lasers?

I've been looking but I can't seem to find them.
