Maybe a tad bit too dark, but a great start!
Is it possible for the trees/foliage to be a darker, murkier green?
Also, can fields have darker borders to show where hedgerows would be?

but very nice work. It's hard to gauge a full opinion without seeing it from a higher altitude.

to be honest,the first second i looked at the right picture, i thought that it looked better.but the more i look at it, the more i feel it looks a bit too brown.so maybe something between those two pictures would be perfect.but thats of course only my opinion.
i know many people think that the colours are correct the way they are.i think that at low sun,the colours are great, but at midday they are a bit too green.

how did you do it?

yep agreed. BUT but but... this is the autumn pack you see \o/ only joking but thats my idea.

ill try just dropping the saturation next time and increase contrast a touch. suprisingly easy to do, once i get the correct colour change formula i want ill apply it to everything terrain based and it will bring a non intrusive mod to use at your descretion. so later on tonight i hope to have some nice comparisons. 8 main field textures between here and france, golf courses and all the independant airfield textures.

im trying to not get into the realms of artwork just yet. although i have played with a snow style layering effect generated from the original textures. but regards foliage yes it can all be changed, and its all contained in 1 file. not to mention the cartoony style grass can be re designed easily too. so....

i will change everything via te choosen colour formula you guys give me feedback on.

How about a look through this (subjective, but maybe useful?)

the first picture looks like midday, the last picture looks like dusk. I don't think the green is off. Just came from england yesterday, england is really lush and green this spring

ok ive modded every assett now. sadly theres a mip mapping bug with the trees file which i had darkened. It produces an error on the console readback too. i have created a photoshop action file for modding the files in bulk ( an autumn and winter mod could be generated in minuites mwahahahha.)

here is where iam at. its subtle now. top pic is original lower the update. trying to create the same images is nigh on impossible lol. feedback ?

TIME= 09:00 settings:



low shots which just seem crap in general.



BTW i could so easily make this game look like WoP ? but i dont think so.
