Was just thinking that the white defaults are a bit *too* white and bright, so thanks for these! I shall be switching them out.

(Could you please add a little blurb about default replacements and how you can only have 1, pretty please? Thankies in advance.) Thanks!! *hugs*

Seems like a "small" thing but makes such a big difference. One of those that when done well, you might not notice it because it just looks right, but when it's glaring white, it jumps out at you. Phae's was quite nice, but I prefer your slightly darker version. Thanks for sharing!

Yay, thanks, I never could use Phaenoh's version because it was too bright and eye catching for me

I really like this :) It's a tiny detail but it makes the roofs look so much nicer.
