Submitted by HerrDave
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
After an extremely long time in the remaking and with the help of Jim, the Grass tile is finally done. Sort of.

Being forced out of the drawing board rather soon on the grounds that I am having trouble with the rim opposite of the shadow.

Update - After comparing it to the rest of the grass textures in WCIII, I found that this creation was a little too pale/dull, so I sat down with a bowl of noodles and a few hours later this is the product.

Changes
-Added more green tone
-Fixed trim to be less flat
-Added Lighting along the left and lower borders
-Increased color vibrancy
-Removed pale hue
-Decreased color vibrancy
-Lessened blue in favor of yellow (Looks different from Lordaeron Summer Grass now)

    I'd have delayed it longer if I could have as the lower rim doesn't look quite right compared to other tiles, but people insisting have more of a voice than I in the matter.

    Have you any ideas on how to improve the tile?

    I fancy this grass :3
     
  5. The upper shadow feels a bit dominant, but in-game it is overall okay.

    Maybe add one or another small, tiny variation, as you already did.

    Yeah, I tried to add a bit of lower shadow, but kept messing it up. I'm on the hunt for someone who can clean it up better than I.

    As for variation, I ran out of ideas for the remaining squares so I ended up performing the cardinal sin of copy-pasting tiles.

    Tbh I like the old color much more. Now it is too much like the standard lordaeron summer grass.

    I see what you mean, I'll put the yellow tint back into it. I wandered away from it because it was looking too out of place when put by other tiles, guess the pendulum swing too far the other way. o-o

    The old tint had a realistic feeling to it. The pale-ish color offset the texture from the in-game textures.

    Open your editor > Open your map > open the import manager > Import the texture > Edit the destination path to the following > [TerrainArt\Village\Village_GrassShort.blp] without the brackets.

    It won't work immediately, you'll have to save your map, exit out of the editor, and reload the map in order for the tiles to render in.
