Finally decided to do something. How did you do the paths? If you lay down wrong a path , is there a way to fix the fuckup?

Go to your design page and click on a design and lay it on the ground. Use the same one for everything so when you switch to a better design it auto swaps them all.

If you want to pick it up  just use B like when you pick up fruit.

Cool.

In 11 days that bare path has recovered something like a third? I would use percentages but you'd just rag on me.

Oh yeah one thing I should mention. You will notice in the pic above.

Here again:

http://i39.tinypic.com/zk0mj4.jpg

I have doubled up on flowers. Half my path is next to a pond so I have a single row next to half the path and a double flower row on the other half and notably there is more growth on the path where there are double flowers. So load up!

Okay, it's difficult to re-create though. I did the horizontal one myself.

The vertical, Wendal gave me:

Holy shit GG, you made the horizontal one yourself based on the one Wendell gave you? It looks like the real deal. Thanks, man. I'll print them tonight and start my own designs.

Yeah it was very hard to do, which is why I suggest you just nab it from me. I didn't appreciate pixel art before this. They have various shades of near identical colour around the tiles which gives them a 3-D effect.

I had to take a cell phone pic and try and copy it. I also have a corner tile I could give you, well it's an intersection crossroads type tile but I dont think its very good.

Whoa. I almost go blind after last night. Finally made both designs. The horizontal was trickier because it inverts the order of the shades. There was a time in the middle of it where I thought "fuck, this is going to look like shit", but in the end, it looks rather good. I think I managed to nail them both pixel by pixel. Pics tonight, finally laid most of the pathwork and started covering everything in flowers and trees.

Still need to figure out a way to lay a good path along the river to catch fresh water fish. I laid two paths to my two ends of the beach.

I'll start hunting for corners. My anal nature makes me all itchy when I try to set a direction change in a path.
