Yeah, I think reusing graphics is mainly for making a demo or as a
starting point - which is important in the open source world if you
want to have something to show to get more people to help you :)

I tend to mentally divide game graphics into "generic" and "specific",
where the generic stuff is often the bulk of the graphics, and the
most boring to create (grass, buildings, inside decoration), and the
specific stuff is the rare pieces that stand out. I think there's
place for a lot of cooperation among open source games for making
generic tiles. That's probably even more true of games that rely more
on gameplay than on backstory and graphics.

Anyway, thanks for the quick answer !
