Something I've been fiddling with... I'm not 100% on it yet but the end of the month is fast approaching, so I'll submit what I've got. I will post a download link for them when I have output the complete gridded and gridless versions. Final version will be 8" square for each tile.
Will a different grid than the standard 1" squares be useful enough for me to make a third version??
Before It's finalized I'd like to get your guy's opinions on the green color: I know printers have trouble with that but if some of those greens are not in a particular printer's gamut will it look like crap or will the thing just try its best and just be less vibrant?

I think it will be a good green for most folks. I think most of us use inkjet printers, and with inkjet the colors wash out a bit. Right now, it's an early spring green, which will be a late spring green once printed.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

The color seems OK to me - a bit garish and bright, but that's a matter of taste, mostly. Another thing you should take into consideration, though: making your tiles 8 inches wide gives a headache to anyone who doesn't have a US Letter printer. A lot of folks out there have printers that handle DIN A4 exclusively and that format is less wide than letter. So if you want to design a tileset that can be used all over the world you should make your tiles 7 inches wide at most. That's also the reason why most designers settled on tiles of 6 x 6 inches.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.
