A long time ago Caelan has kindly given me permission to reuse and/or alter his graphics and release those under GPLv2-license.
One of those graphics was a windmill.
I have altered that graphic, added texture and also colorcorrected it (as in the original version Caelan did not use the Openttd-palette, so some colors were animated)
The version without blades looks pretty good in my humble opinion, but the trick is with the angle of the blades.
In Caelans original version and Pyoro's version the blades look like they are facing straight at the player. I do not think that is correct (even though it is possible, as the top of a windmill can be rotated to get the most wind), it just doesnt look right...
So I made two new directions of the blades, maybe there is one that is useable, or it may give inspiration to make it even better.
If anyone uses these graphics, please be so kind to mention Caelan in the credit-section of the (donot)readme file (I know its not obligatory for GPLv2, but it is nice and kind to do so

The untextured version is also there, just in case you may not like the colors and want to recolor before texturing, makes that a bit easier
