Really nice texture - this just made me think of something:

Could you imagine how that sand would look if FF7 supported parallax occlusion mapping  :-o

Sorry for posting only and not showing own work

For the guys working on the train scenes:
There is artwork for the FF VII Midgar trains, and they are even featured in CC.

Looks more like a steam train than I thought 11 years ago.

Quiet interesting source. I found a good info about Highwind^^

Corrected the sand color:

Timu, I played with the tiles so the size and color would be similar to original. If it's better than the last one, I'll replace it

I don't remember what the beach scene looked like originally, but my knowledge of beaches tells me the lines should be PARALLEL to the waves rather than perpendicular.

having just completed that battle, i can agree that the original looks strange. I think the stretching of the original masked the strangeness, as is the case with man of the battle scenes.

I'd just flip the sand to run the correct way. I agree with staying true to the original as much as possible, but sometimes concessions should be made for the sake of common sense.

Dunno why i don't like that scene that much. Looks "unreal".
Could you use something closer to this just to see the diference?

Maybe its not meant to be a sandy beach. You could make it a rocky beach, or a mix of rock sand and dirt/mud/clay/sand. Look around industrial areas to see what I mean.

How about this sand?
Well if you look at it carefully it's a sunset beach setting. IE the beach at sunset. The angle of the sun at that time is close to the zero angle (angle at which anything and everything reflects off a surface). This creates some unusual visual effects on the beach surface. I believe that was what the original creators of the scene were trying to do. Beach sunset with weird sea creature I guess?

Now that you meantion it, you are probably right.
The first sand colour was right all the time, the montains and the sea just need to be toned to a sunset tone (darker?  :|)

I think it needs more trees in the background (smaller so they are far away type thing) the giant gap in between the two trees in the middle is to large.

Just my two cents


I see you said the sky box isn't finished yet. Ignore me :D
