I'm just using photoshop's Skew function to finish up this set.
I'm using the existing image for this (the first on in the pic).. I'm using TI's concrete cliffs as a template, using transparency i can use ti's cliffs as a background layer to line up the angles right, and its working pretty smooth i think so far. They might not be perfect, but as long as it looks decent enough im cool with it. what yall think?  (not much progress yet, but just wanted to check if its easy to do, and it is)

cncnet is enjoying the big concrete cliffs with the slope angle, its pretty dope. But i'm basically just doing this so i can make a profile for maptool to convert ra2 maps, cuz convertion doesnt work with those angled cliffs. And then we can play them on cncnet ts, enlarging our massive map database even further lol

Not bad, the horizontal (3rd) piece looks blurry though. Might want to use some sharpen on it. Also, on the 2nd and 4th pieces, I'd make the tall face slightly brighter than the flat pieces to reinforce the perspective.

Im definitly gonna come back to each one and make them better. I just wanted to have each tile existing first so i have a better view on how to fix them.

It actually turned out better then i thought it would, it looks terrible right now, but i'm definitly gonna fix m up lol.
Ima also gonna thicken the line on the back cliffs, add the darker line there too,..

Anyway, just posting progress for tips or comments (im using photoshop)

Also, before i do my own research.. are destroyable cliffs hardcoded? I can make a destroyable cliff for the concrete cliffs?

If no, have anyone tried turning a destroyable cliff into a building placed on top of a slope?

Logic is to replace the destroyable cliffs to its normal cliff version. Temperat/snow.ini has its cliff entry for graphics.

I don't think you will be able to replace it to concrete cliff, never tried myself.

Made a few improvements.. but its just a really slow process.
It really doesn't look good yet, id rather delete this entirely and use
the ones from TI if they allow it, and just change the terrain a little bit, that would really be helpful.

Don't delete it; someone might find a use for it.

If you want to get rid of them put them up; let someone else fix/finish them then.

I think ima leave these cliff tiles like this, too much work for each tile. and i have a better idea that might be easier and faster.

Would love to help, but no idea how; IIRC there still isn't a guide for making TMPs.
