The WIP you posted would only really work for round ones.
Nope. It's just addon to Academy walls. Purpose is clear - bring some diversity.
MerlinX420 wrote:I do have some concern regarding the shadows. The higher the wall the more shadow it would cast IRL. I found I had to make a separate shadow set and remove yours in order to get the desired effect. ( I had to do some creative layering but I like the ability to create custom shadows based on the actually building and not a shadow that's a fixed size based on the tile it's next to.) Have the shadows affixed to the tiles prevents it from being put on a top layer that would actually cast the shadow onto the sprite or layers below.
Shadows should be placed in separate file. ATM I don't care. Most of TMW tileset have crappy shadows.

Proper ground integration may be done only if final ground tile exists. ATM I don't see any. I refer to rocky clif.

Not my problem. Mapper should be aware of limitations. This set was designed to be outer wall. So vertical offset of wall stays as it's now. It's easier to place shadows from external tileset because wall ends with tile grid.

The shadows I made for the crypt are to dark for use in an outside environment but I will make some the same opacity as the ones you have in this set. Perhaps with some creative layering I could get the desired effect with out changes to this existing set.
Do as you wish.

Our road maps aims in different ways. BTW source file have shadows on different layer. So keep doing your "mangling".
