With the Chancellorsville battle pack beeing a few years old now, I thought I'd work on a overhaul of the terrain map graphics. Thre are some nice grass multi-tex effects to play around with in the original!

A lot of things to do, but here's an early preview ....

It's getting there. The grass/fields terrain textures are coming along. Lot's more sprites etc to work on. Hopefully for a nice graphics update on this.

Looks great, David. Huge improvement, especially the dirt roads.

One thing I have encountered on the CV maps and the Pipe Creek maps is that the terrain splats appear to be stretched out to cover larger areas of terrain than on most other maps, possibly 2x the dimensions and so 4x the area. This can blur and pixelate the splats. I don't know of a method to alter the "splat coverage" factor. Is there one that you know of?

In LStudio look at

Edit/level properties/detail scale.

Adjust from 0.24 to 0.2.

That may improve the things.

Also, sometimes, some textures are bigger than others.

I've adjusted some LStudio detail settings, as you say Crikey.
Although some contrast is lost, I think it's the way to go!

Nice work, David.

Yeah, those settings match the original GB maps I believe, so keeps things consistent.
