Here is a tiny set of terrain tiles with a tool (Blender file) to create more.

These tiles are for continuous terrain, where each vertex can only be 1 unit above/below nearby vertices.

Made per request here

Specs: the tiles are for a base grid size of 64x32. The tiles are 64x48 each, thus each step in elevation is 8 pixels. The first 4 tiles are the same, just rotated.

The shades of those angles aren't based on 3D light, they're self illuminated. Basically the lightest shade is the texture at 100% diffuse intensity, the medium shade is 66%, the dark shade is 33% (I simply made 3 materials with different diffuse intensity but the same texture).

During usage and in specific game engines, you might adjust some tiles up/down 8 pixels; depending on how the engine assumes tiles are vertically aligned.

Usage: Create a texture named "texture.png" and put it in the same folder as the terrain_tool.blend file. Open in Blender and click "Animation". It will create 22 tiles in a folder named "out".

I use this montage script to combine the 22 tiles into 1 sheet:

montage 0*.png -background "transparent" -geometry 64x48 -tile 4x6 terrain.png

(edit) Added two missing terrain options, thanks to Betalord for catching it and testing the results.

None needed, but if you're feeling nice just attribute to "Clint Bellanger".
