Hi Bassam,

The problem with using something other than a checkerboard is that it
is much harder to produce equivalent results in other programs, and it
is much harder agree on what the resulting images should look like. :(

I tried using pluggins (there is a "tiles" pluggin) on Blender 2.49b
but the result is also strange:


I don't know what the "sprinkle noise" is and it doesn't seem like the
texture coordinates are being respected close to the horizon.

I will look into the wood idea, but I would love to have a checkerboard. :)

Kind regards,
