the overlays were a bitch. You wouldn't believe how many hours i spent on that...

"...3 pixels to the east, 4 pixel to the west... oups the tile coordinates needs to change."

anyhow thanks for your comments, the playa itself is a reward.. but i'll never forget finding that pack of cigarettes in the middle of NOWHERE two days I ran out of my stack...
