Non-Proliferating Wild Bamboo Texture Fix

This is a simple override for the 'light' texture for the basegame Non-Proliferating Wild Bamboo.

If your graphics card uses pixel shaders in-game then you will notice that the light colour option of this plant looks odd.

This mod overrides the TXMT resource for this colour option so that it displays correctly when using shaders.

If you have pixel shaders turned off in-game, or your graphics card is not capable of using pixel shaders, then this mod will have no effect for you, as your game is not displaying the broken part of the texture. Having this mod in-game without pixel shaders will not harm your game but you will notice no texture difference.

This mod is compatible with all game versions and will only clash with other mods which alter the material definition of that particular texture. Any custom recolours of that plant, or objects which use the plant's texture, should work okay.

I wondered why the bamboo looked so strange, sort of dried up. Thank you!

I had no idea what was bothering me about the bamboo, but it felt off somehow. I had no idea how "off" it really was! Thanks so much for such a great I-had-no-idea-how-much-I-needed-this-until-you-made-it improvement to my game!
