I've read the other three reviews of this file, and there seem to be mixed opinions about it. Well, these tiles are basically the darkland tiles but with a grey floor rather than blue. DinkDude is right about it not being stone. Though it might be able to pull off being called dirt. Anyways, I don't see a problem with them being tinted version of the darklands. The tilesets look good. I have a few issues with them, but nothing that would remove their entire value.

My issues with these tiles is that the black space is actually entirely black. The darklands version while appearing black, was not entire so. It has little specks of color in it- to me the specks sort of look like stars. The other issue I have with this set is that there are still some edges in the tiles that are blue. I guess the author didn't do a complete job when tinting.

The readme of this file does explain how to implement new tiles, however it does so in a single line with poorly written english. It doesn't credit the author either, but I suppose that's not a huge deal.

My overall thoughts on this would be that if I wanted to use grey tiles I'd use these, despite the issues I have with them.

These tiles are ok, but I don't like them much. If they were stone, there wouldn't be rocks on top. Because you don't find rocks on stone. (If you have seen rocks on stone then please email me!) And the 'stone tiles' don't really look too stoney.

I think all he did was just darken the original Darkland tiles using some special program. Becuase of this, the rocks look darker and worse too. If I was going to patch it up a bit (which I don't feel like doing at the moment) I would Cut and paste the original rocks into another file, then darken the tiles, then paste the rocks back on top of the darkened rocks. It would look much better.

So sorry, but it's a 2.5 for me!

This file contains five tiles that can replace the darklands tiles (ts24, ts25, ts26, ts27, ts28).

The only thing you have to do is move or copy the tiles to the tiles directory of your D-mod. They have the correct number, so it works real easy. The tiles have a sort of greyish colour. That is the only thing that is different in comparison to the original tiles.

For those who can not use a graphics programme or do not have any, this file could come in handy, but for those who have got a programme such as Paint Shop Pro it is real easy to give tiles a different kind of colour.

These are the standard grass/hill/rock tiles tinted or colourised a dirty grey/green/brown tinge. Not bad, but not really stone. Maybe if you add some of the cracks it would help, but I found these too big. The tiles themselves needed cracks added, small hairline ones... tricky to do and maintian the tileable factor.

Overall they are a bit too much like the darklands in look (the blue grass conversion the original Dink had) to be different.

Even so it's good to have another tile option.
