Early Graphics Leftovers[edit]

These used World Map graphics are actually early versions of graphics found in level tilesets.

Small bush 1

Large bush

The world map textures were apparently never updated, but the tilesets were. "Small bush 2" and "large bush" can be seen in various pre-release materials. The size difference of the "large bush" may be due to memory limitations in the world map.
