As part of replacing files with unknown or incompatible licenses, I tried making a new grass texture [1] based on grass vector shapes [2] by OCAL-user deemonizer.

SVG Changes: colors, shapes, shading

I had to make changes in Gimp to the rendered file (all pixels have 0 or 255 alpha), otherwise some pixels would render white. Here [3] it is.

I also made some screenshots showing off the new grass [4].

Is this a good replacement for the current grass? Please be blunt. :) If it's not good, I will give it another shot or ask at OpenGameArt for help.

Who can decide whether something gets checked into svn or not?
