Where's the gravel?

The gray version of this texture is also available.

Simply replaces the default gravel texture with one that's easier to see. Why would you want to know where gravel is? It's only 70% fertile (compared to regular soil's 100% fertility). Any crops planted on it will grow slower so you'll want to avoid it.

A tweak of Frndly Fire's "Where is poor soil?" mod, which was in turn inspired by AlcoholV's "Where is rich soil?" mod. Frndly Fire's mod was great, the texture was just low-res and weirdly coloured so this uses a high-res texture of actual gravel.

As it's just a texture replacement, it can be added or removed from saves without issue.

Do not install both Frndly Fire's mod and this one, only one is required.

Because I don't want to change this texture any more for the people who might prefer it, I created a new version with a gray texture: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=892937516

Personally, I don't like all of this yellow being between all of my dirt and stone. I think the yellow sticks out like a soar thumb.

I remember trying the grey and it blending in with marble like you said, so then I tried going a lighter gray and it blended in with ice. As someone who likes playing on maps with lots of marble, I think it would be a bit of a crime. ;)

After this last update, do you think it looks different enough from sand to stand out?

I would have liked the gravel to be gray, but then it would go from looking like dirt to looking like marble... but on the other hand, would that be so much of a crime?

Update: lightened the gravel texture so that it's easier to differentiate from sand. Also posted a few more screenshots to show how it would look in different biomes.

@TheProcrastinator Are you referring to the colour or the texture? I'll agree that the colour is somewhat similar but I tried out a lot of different shades and this was the most visible one against all the other terrains that wasn't an outlandish colour. I thought the texture difference between the gravel and sand were enough to differiate them but perhaps I was wrong. I added screenshot of gravel next to sand so everyone can see what we're referring to.
