Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The original Path to Meadow terrain paint, created by SalixTree at Parsimonious, is terrific and pops up from time to time in downloads and pictures. I've made three modified versions for variety.

One is older, warm and worn (-brownstone):

One is greyish (-greystone):

And the last one is called July, apparently it is from a place which has lots of rain in July, unlike where I live (-July):


Additional Credits:
SalixTree at Parsimonous for the original terrain paint.

Great work...I , too, am a HUGE fan of SalixTree, and this is the perfect complement to the original.

I usually steer clear of terrain paints, just too many of them out there; making an exception here, these are beautiful and USEFUL! Thanks!

These are very nice, I can't wait to use them!

I am curious as to the lot you used with the terrain, is it one of your making or did you download it (and if so, would you mind posting the link)?
#14 Old 14th Mar 2011 at 2:50 PM
Uhhh.... Nice, I love the original one, and it's gonna be nice with some variety
#15 Old 13th Jun 2011 at 9:11 AM
I looked forward to using these but they showed up only as grey squares, so they aren't compatible for Mac users. First time I ever ran into this with terrain paints.

I'm sorry about that. I will see if the instructions for making mac compatible walls might be used to make a mac-friendly version. It would help if you could tell me whether the original works for you?

These are lovely, thanks.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the sunflowers in your pictures? They're so cute!

They are certainly from the game. I think they came with the Mansions and Gardens stuff pack.

Drat, I don't have that one. Ah well. On the upside, your lovely terrains have come in handy already!

Yay, thanks! I had been looking for a path terrain paint for a lot I am uploading (don't worry I will give credit with link of course!)
