I made a 7z file with all the gimp xcf files and the .blend file I use for border baking.
(Blend file requires knowledge of assigning an image to a texture as well as using blender's bake functionality)

Made a cliff for the rockies tileset, haven't tried it yet. It's rotationally tileable, however.

New release, including all the required cliff decals for all the three tilesets.
Edit: btw, I'd really like a folder for 256x256 tiles, how hard would that be to do?

256x256 isn't that difficult to add, but all the old stuff would need to be upscaled, and that tends to look bad.

And thanks for your hard work, it is appreciated!

upscaling the old stuff with a bit of gaussian interpolation wouldn't make it look any different from what it is now, since the pixels are interpolated anyway...
Anyway, thanks :)

Another question: may we allow decals to spread across a bit larger space? Around its tile? That is, 256x256 decals that are not scaled to one tile, but take half-tile more at every side. This will probably allow making cliffs a bit wider (but still crisp) (not sure though).

@NoQ: having decals spread across multiple tiles can possibly cause problems with the tileability of cliffs etc...

Here are the textures the way i like them. Are these ok?
Cause we might get them into beta11 if we hurry up (:

I increased the transparency of arizona even further; they still make cliffs prefectly clear even in very hard places like the Nowhere map shown below, but don't strike in the eyes too much when observed from above.

With some alpha, rocky mountain textures no longer make the icecaps completely broken.

Note that we can't afford completely forgetting about the icecap tiles; they need to be made into decals as well, otherwise we can get bad holes in cliffs, cause they can sometimes reach the bottom (especially the 1/4-icecap-3/4-cliff tiles).

Yeah, the decals look better when they are more subtle :)

Hmm, just tried to use arizona-like cliffs on urban and rockies. Looked sort of cool (especially rockies).
How about leave it like that? :oops:
