Does it look a bit better now?

In any case, the best way to break up a grid to use different tiles. Don't just tile 1 tile, tile several with little changes. Don't forget to use some tiles that are just 1 color either.
Yes, I know. :3 I haven't made them yet, but I do plan to have a few of each tile. I want to get this one fixed first, though, so that I can make sure they all tile.

Haha, I feel so weird just now, I usually encourage wordy and pick-apart-y critique, but I feel a pressing need to just give praise for you and your tremendous improvement, especially on the grass tile - it started out as something quite hideous (but with a clear idea and thus potential) and is now something very nice to rest the eyes upon!

Same with the dirt tile - I'll be a bit more constructive here - I can think that making things 'not tile' can be too much of an undertaking sometimes. Tiles tile, that's their nature. Making the tiling into a smooth and even shape is priority, because then it'll be even easier to add break-up tiles that make things look more natural. I think you're doing great with this. So keep it up!

Oh, fine. Tile nicely. I'm focusing on making sure they tile nicely. XD Semantics! Thank you very much for the compliments, Jad. :lol:


Started on transitions. I was pretty unsure about how to do these...

i think this is a pretty awsome article about tiles and transitions: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/3028/tiled_terrain.php?page=1
considering your skill i dont think you're gonna have problems implementing these.

Mattam - That looks like it's for texturing polygons for 3d games. I don't think that rotating the tile is very plausible for these kind of tiles, since the view and the light source are not straight-down.
