More Envelopes or Custom Envelopes?

What if there were more custom envelopes than four? Sometimes it's a bit hard when you can use only four envelopes when you need few hundreds of them. Is there any possible ways to "add" more envelopes in the actual game? Maybe, by adding them in CE itselves on a new page?

What level scenario could one think of that would require hundreds of envelopes??? :-D

Hm, I can't think of any way to create additional envelopes by using some clever CE tricks. (But I will never write the words "CE" and "impossible" in the same sentence again, or else Alan Bond would prove me wrong. ;-) )

Did Alan even get the memo that the site came back from that 3-year downtime?

We sort of lost contact. I've tried to reach him several times with no success; seems that all his old mail addresses are inactive now. :-(

I really hope he's well (even if he might not be interested in R'n'D anymore)...

Back on topic "more envelopes", I've been pointed out that eight envelopes were needed instead of four to re-create Diamond Caves 3 style levels, so maybe I should at least increase the number of envelopes to eight...

Envelopes 5-8

Ok, if so, what colors will be stamp cliparts on those 5-8 envelopes? Just curious because I aldeady added tokens of those in my 64px graphics set :D

Hm, not sure... any idea what colors were used in DC3?

For your own graphics set, you can of course use any colors you like, but I understand that you would like to match them with the original colors... :-)

because why not?

Okay, whatever, I made them match same colors as EMC doors 5-8 (purple, lightblue, brown and darker gray), just like that happens with envelopes 1-4 (red, yellow, green and blue) :D
