the internet for this one, so I used the paint program to make a patch
of grass for this hill. The tutorial provides a really nice picture for

playing around with the buttons. Find the "Map Input" button at the far

flat and everything there. See what you get each time. Play around with
the RGB values of your shading colors (F5), see how it changes the
color of your textures. Go forth and explore!
