That last one looks like a StarCraft tile set. Dislike. Strongly. (There's a word for that)

Wow.
Don't know, if such walkaway really can increase walking speed, being so uneven, but who really cares? It looks amazing!

BUT
THE TSAR IS GIVEN TO THEM IN EXCHANGE!

I'm sorry, but I must agree with others, that new concrete graphic looks more like stone.
When You pour concrete it is flat and smooth. You can keep it composed of small tiles, but don't make them look so bumpy.
The old texture looked more clean and suitable for factory flooring use, when You really don't want to trip over a tile and fall into furnace or nuclear reactor. ;-)

Same here, the current texture (0.15) is fine for me at least. Nevertheless i really really like that feature to have smaller corners and borders of different textures. With placeable / craftable plants, trees, water stuff we can build our very own oases. Awesome!

GET RID OF THE GRASS ETC.

Not in general - but when I lay down concrete. I really hate that I have a large area of poured concrete (or set stone) and there are bushes around. Concrete and Stone should form a flat area without any decals from the original terrain.
Agree 1000%. I'm fine with the textures, but those stupid bushes and grass that remain are infuriating. Then, the new "functionality" of not being able to see which bushes will be removed until AFTER you replace a concrete piece has made it even worse. If we wanted bushes in our bases, we'd just make paths.

Follow-up: I've learned that if I hold down both the left and right mouse buttons while holding concrete, it will remove and replace almost immediately allowing for a quicker solution for removing the grass and bushes from concrete pads.
