    Late reply is late (somehow I didn't get notified). But YAY, my Banners made it!
    More of these may be tricky as there are only a few patterns that aren't used for background/decoration. There may still be some left though. Any suggestions which symbol/pattern we need?

    Also:
    -> Minecraft Banners :: Miners Need Cool Shoes Skin Editor
    This one may help. Just note that it uses the original patterns.

    I think you should change the White Tree from flower to gradient, because gradients don't normally appear on banners and flowers could actually be useful for Middle-earth themed banners :) .

    Or simply re-add the flower instead of the gradient if White Tree banners have already been used :) .

    The problem being that we have already used the tattered (or mud-splashed, or however you want to use it) texture, which is currently the gradient, in places. (Although I would enjoy having the flower back instead of the tree in some cases, cough Fennas/Ethring)

    isn't the splashed texture replacing the wall?

    I actually use the gradients quite often because they allow you to make the banner look less "flat".

    Some examples:
    For background -> Minecraft Banners :: Miners Need Cool Shoes Skin Editor
    To wash out colors -> Minecraft Banners :: Miners Need Cool Shoes Skin Editor
    And my favorite: The Curtain™ (available in many different colors) -> Minecraft Banners :: Miners Need Cool Shoes Skin Editor

    I'd like to keep all of the background shapes for exactly such uses, but maybe there's some that are really not used at all.

    Oh yes, sorry my bad.

    Is the fancy border (vines) used anywhere yet?

    I don't know if anyone uses it yet, but I think it works well for Rohan: Minecraft Banners :: Miners Need Cool Shoes Skin Editor
    I'd rather go for the four corner squares. I can't see those getting used often.

    The Swan Ship of Dol Amroth and the hammer, anvil and crown of Durin is for some reason not included in the download version (I checked every single texture and couldn't find them in the files)

    Huh, you're right... Weird... The shield patterns are missing as well...
    Apparently the download version is the one from the first (of three) updates.
    I'm going to upload the current version again, might fix it - after a few days of waiting for approval that is...

    Do you think it will be implemented in the server's RPs as well?

    In theory they should already be, since it was a request from Thijs and I told Finrod about it. Seems the resources derping out delayed that though.

    If you ever add more designs to this pack please try to not alter the top right square if possible because that will mess upp several of the flags I've made for the birthday cake monument... or any other pattern exept for the top left square and the two gradiants I suppose.
