This is a pack intended to be used as a dark beach for Dink. Or at least that is what the description would make you think. Now I could imagine a dark beach to be useful in some DMODs, but this pack is not going to be of any help.

The first problem is that this pack is basically tile no 16 (the beach/grass tiles) but with its colors darkened. This means you can make the borders between beaches and grass perfectly well, but since there are no beach/water tiles and no tiles for making large surfaces of water, sand or grass you can't do anything else. Can you imagine a DMOD consisting of only dark beach/grass tiles? I salute your imagination.

Not that you'd want to use them even if they did match. Because they simply look like someone inverted the colors of the graphics. In practice this means that the sand is very dark and the grass is bright, not a typical nighttime phenomenon. Oh, and did I mention that inverting the colors does not make for very pleasing graphics?

So, we have dark, non-matching and ugly tiles. This means there can only be one conclusion: This file is, unfortunately, useless. I'll give it points for actually being in a usable .bmp format, but that's all I can think of.

These are the beach sand to grass graphics from original Dink (Ts16.bmp) with the colours inverted using Microsoft Paint. Starting from having the tileset opened in Paint, it takes two clicks to accomplish this. On top of that, it looks like crap.

Is it intended to provoke a response? Is it simply bad? Was it submitted just to see if it would get through? For fun? Whatever the reason, this is the worst file on the Dink Network. I would add "to date", but I shall take a chance and trust nothing more horrible will ever come.
