When I get to something resembling art....
added more greenery to the main quest castles, they now look more interresting, old and grounded in the surroundings
Showing 3 of 4 such places because of images limit

Thank you :) the combination of old stone with some green moss/ivy has its certain charm, its a safe bet.... like a red ferrari.

The thing which makes this looks a bit more stylish is, that Ive have kept the normal maps and the height maps the way they looked before I even added the greens. The greens are added only on the main texture. This makes the green stuff blend in better and copy the stone better, in some places merging with it even - like in the last image at the horizontal parts..

Ive added slight shadow under the green stuff so it blends with the stone better. It behaves more like ambient occlusion than a defined shadow. Without that - it did not look good. These things are invisible to the end user.

Working with these type of textures - 512x1024 canvas which is basically repeated all over the building - is very special task. In modern games, you have unlimited amount of textures to define a object. Here you have basically ONE for the last image. TWO for the previous ones which include windows. Its brutal minimalism. And everything counts there. I like the discipline. It has something in common with the discipline of pixel art - with a very limited resources you try to achieve as much as possible.

I found a bug with 0.11.5 and the UI module.
The Map looks like this with the module enabled:

Probably has something todo with:
Added "Accessibility" panel in DFU settings, with 4 new settings to select building colors in the Automap #2147

You forgot to mention that at that point the game is crashed, so the regression does really look bad.
The log looks like this (many times):

I'm sorry this is happening. I specifically wanted the change not to write to the texture for this reason. You can see my comment below.

https://github.com/Interkarma/daggerfal ... r652195585

I've obviously missed checking this fully in review. I'll take a look now to see if a hotfix can be arranged.

Edit: Yep, I missed this in review. The method used to recolour legend was changed to an overlay rather than a texture write, but the changes to make texture read-write and call texture.Apply() were not removed despite no longer being needed. I've submitted a fix for this now.

https://github.com/Interkarma/daggerfal ... 59a6e3b298

I'll release a hotfix shortly to 0.11.6 to resolve this. KoW - if you're doing a rebuild of DREAM for 0.11.5 anyway, you should also be able to workaround this by setting your TOWN00I0.IMG import settings to allow texture writes.

Edit2: Have confirmed fix is compatible with current release of DREAM from Nexus. Spinning up hotfix builds to 0.11.6 now and will post when available.

Edit3: Hotfix to 0.11.6 now available. Builds are otherwise identical to 0.11.5 with just the fix for this specific issue.

I found a (very minor) bug in your mod. In the spider texture (261, record 1, frames 1, 2, 3 (counting from 0)), there is a small, during normal gameplay invisible dot, that shouldn't be there.
