Take a look at the existing tilesets...
Making a nice replacement for the hires tileset is one thing you could
do... I don't really like that tileset and I know I'm not alone...

I don't know what you mean by resolution changing exactly but I think
there is support for tilesets of different sizes (there's two sizes used
now and it looks like it would be simple to add a tileset with another
About the colordepth I don't really know but I don't think it will be
too big a problem if any...

Go ahead! I'm sure we can work something out... :)


Now take a deep breath, smile and don't take life so seriously... :)
