The original concrete texture set started out at full tile placements because I thought that would make it easier to use. Liz was the first to suggest quarter tile placements. Believing I was tending to two matters in one go I then made a test-release concrete textured set to QTC, with additional end pieces which were necessary when the set was FTC. Due to the added versatility of the updated QTC placements the additional (FTC) end pieces turned out to be unnecessary so I removed them. The original concrete texture set that was created to FTC placements has since been updated as a pre-release set in QTC placements. During the update, horizontal parts of the set that placed at Z=0 were given the video fallout fix.






The old set used a 1024 x 1024 texture. The pre-release set uses the exact same texture but it's 256 x 256, which I discovered gives just the same results as a 1024 x 1024. I've tiled the new texture a little smaller on the updated pieces and although it looks slightly more repetitive that texture now lines up on every piece. The following images show the versatility of the new QTC placements.

Once I've uploaded the concrete QTC official release version, if you've placed my original FTC concrete texture supports set in your park you won't need to delete the FTC pieces prior to installing the QTC set. Additionally, no FTC pieces already placed will change if you install the new set. The old set and the new set can both be installed and used in your game at the same time.






After once or twice using the pre-release set I find the QTC placements are no more difficult to use than the old FTC set. I immediately noticed the increased versatility when placing the new QTC pieces.

I have further experimented with an interlocked rock texture.

Textures additional to the concrete, hewn brick, and interlocked rock are planned for future release. I'm also considering the usefulness of support pieces with openings for tunnel entrances built into their sides.
