Nah, flowers would make the place look less creepy.

but more plant life would help spruce it up some. How about the thorn plants from the New Forest title set work?

U know , the grass is sort of unreal.It should ahve a lot of holes, so the color should be different in some parts.anyway the topic is about tombstones... as i see they are good except one of `em which is like a box or something!

It`ll be good if u add some bones and skulls near some of `em.

The wall tiles need some grass in front of them. It looks like some giant just dropped them there on the grass.

~I could try that while I'm away... if you've not done it already.

The last thing on my must-have list are open graves. Here is my take on it. I am not that happy with it yet. So constructive criticism would be appreciated.

I think the freshly dug and open graves might look a little better if they were a little wider to better match the head stones.

And a grave can be bigger because of the use of some sort of coffin but I don't know if that is the direction people want to go.

On that same line, the open caskets themselves might be remnant, whether in the holes or above ground near the graves.

Or perhaps Mana Worldians don't use caskets...

Let's do a grass mound for the graves instead?

Also that dirt road should be redone instead of spreading it around by abusing it.

grass mound is a very cool idea, i'd love to see it. Definitely must have forcefully-open graves though.
