Desert road adjusting

Post by pekka »

I wasn't satisfied of the current desert road. It has far too much contrast compared to every other terrain tile, so I started to adjust it a bit.

The topmost picture has the original desert road tiles. The lowest picture might be a little too similar to the dirt road and contrastless. Maybe the best result would be something between the middle and the lowest road example?

I agree. Something like the middle one looks nice.

This fits nicely into what has been done lately, with reducing saturation & contrast on those that don't lool natural (like the recent changes to desert & sand).

Terrain should not contend with units when it comes to contrast and saturation.

Edit: These where intended to be used with desert terrain, but has become more or less a generic sand road, so you might want to keep that in mind when editing them.

Great, another thing that's bugged me about Wesnoth has been fixed without any effort on my part.
Yes the middle one, or something between the middle and last would be great.

I'm very curious to see how this, like almost all other terrains, would look with its vertical scale reduced by 50%. So far it's worked wonders for a couple of terrains, and I'd like to try it on several others.

commited.
if a squashed version is better, commit over it.

This one has pretty uniform noise, so I wouldn't think it would benefit much from it. We could always try and see though.

Gratuitous praise from JW.

Fixing things I would never consciously be aware bugged me. Nicely done. =)

Good job, you removed the very reason I refused to use this terrain in levels!

Thanks it looks a lot nicer, as a darker form of dirt/sand road. As someone who has a lot of desert maps, I appreciate the update.
