    I like the overall look of it, especially the new Desert and Dunes.

    A few minor comments:
    - Grassland and Lush are not that easily differentiated, though (maybe lush should be greener?)
    - Not a great fan of Scrub (I'd have though something closer to Desert or Barren with some, well, scrubs)

    1) We already have one alternate terrain pack.

    2) I assume this is intended as a replacement for the current terrain set. It is just as bad as the current default set, in that it makes me ill just looking at it.

    Dune is too dark for my taste. I agree with RWN except that.

    I think this set is at least better than the current set. Anyway, it's a modmod. People who want to use it will use it and people who don't will not use it.

    OK for me, Marsh and Muddy are backwards. Lush needs a little more plain "lush" green like it was. Ice i really like. Perma is alot better also. I like i waves also in Dunes.

    But Hydro, what say you?? I believe you made the last graphics comparison?

    DH, this is more in your ball park, maybe make a double alternative just for you dont get "headaches" any longer??:p

    Lush is maybe a bit flashy/bright but I'd rather get this than something too close from grasslands.

    Some comments after trying it in-game, by decreasing order of importance:
    - Moutains are all icy-white, probably unintended
    - The features such as peat bog are two large/not transparent, it looks a bit out of place and it's not so easy to see the terrain beneath
    - Salt flats are often in the middle of desert, but look very different. Maybe give a more "sandy" to the salt flats?

    But overall it looks good. I'll stay with this modmod.

    Salt Flats do look totally different from the surrounding terrain. That is why they are so easy to pick out from space.

    Icy mountains and peat bog on permafrost that makes it look like a different terrain:

    Salt flats in the middle of dunes:
