    THIS THREAD IS CLOSED, AND AWAITING RE-ACTIVATION AS OF 5/29/2013.
    IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST FOR A TILE OR MODEL, FEEL FREE TO PM ME, BUT BE WARNED: I MAY NOT ACCEPT! I AM VERY BUSY MAKING MODELS FOR MY OWN PROJECT!
    I've noticed that the Warcraft 3 modding community is greatly lacking when it comes to tile art to replace the current crappy tiles. People are always asking for new tiles, but almost nobody makes them. I hope to remedy this problem with a realtexture tile workshop where you can request tiles to me and I will actively create new ones using GIMP and free textures I have downloaded. Here are two of my tiles on a hill.
    IMPORTANT EDIT: I DO NOT ACTIVELY CHECK THIS THREAD ANYMORE. IF YOU WANT A TILE PM ME PLEASE.

    And a screen from above:

    Like what you see? Request a tile for yourself! I am working on a project that requires lots of new tiles so most tiles that you request will be of use to me.
    Keep in mind, the tiles are expected to be at least 700 kb.

    How to Request
    1: Give me a somewhat specific name for the tile.
    2: Give me a short description of the environment the tile will be in.
    3: Tell me the properties of the tile:
    (a) What is the tile's basic shape? This will change the edges of the tile.

    (b) How thick do you want the tile? The thickness affects how much of nearby tiles your tile will cover.
    (c) How much do you want your tile to blend with the rest of the tiles? Do you want it to blend very well or not at all? Someplace in between?
    4: I will choose the texture, but It would be very helpful if you can provide a reference picture that will give me the general idea of how you want it to look. If you provide a reference pic, the tile will probably look much closer to what you wanted.
    5: Try to describe in a little detail how it looks.

    If I will answer your request as fast as possible if I am not busy. The completed tile will be posted in this thread and uploaded to the skin section. Thanks for requesting. My only price is credits in your map. If you're feeling generous, you can tip me with some rep.

    You sure you want green leaves? Leaves on the ground are usually brown red and yellow.

    Considering all of warcraft 3's default trees are pines needles would be better. I'll try to make one with a that looks ok with warcraft 3 trees to. Be warned, it will probably look out of place without other realtexture tiles.

    Any reason the tiles you made have high file sizes, BallisticTerrain? I am guessing it's the textures that you use.

    Yup, the textures and the fact that that image size is 512x512. I could lower it to 256x256, but it would make me lose so much detail it would no longer really look realtexture. In addition, realtexture tiles are usually for single player maps where filesize doesn't really matter.

    All right, you made a good point, I guess. :ogre_hurrhurr: I have a question, though. What is the difference between realtexture and normal texture? I am guessing realtexture pertains to something in nature.

    Realtexture means I take a photograph and use it as the texture.

    Hmmmm, I don't really think those would fit the look of warcraft's style. You should focus more on the "cartoonish" side of the tile, if you ask me.

    They aren't ment to fit with normal warcraft 3 graphics. More and more projects have been using realtexture models and are confined to the tilesets in BM2's pack. Thought I'd change that.

    neo sluf: I can't find any textures for green leaves on the ground. I'll make you some autumn leaves if you prefer.

    i think the sand would look better if it was diagonal, it looks kind of odd horizontal like that. dosn't really matter, i didn't request it
