Making tilable images can sometimes be quite a chore. Organica
plans to change that this summer.
"Organica will feature a revolutionary way of designing tiling textures. Rather than painting textures by hand, Organica allows you to create textures at a conceptual level by visually linking together texture components and processes, adjusting values, and modifying preexisting textures.

I thought I should point out this mapper: BerneyBoy
. He publishes his maps under multiple platforms. For example, his Egypt TeamTemple map was built for:

Gamespy has started a developers diary for Chrome
