nah man, look closer, it even gained some detail and definition, it looks awesome ingame. Only artefacts are lost, lines are more defined, its clean... look at those cracks on a window-frame and other details

EDIT: Or I can say it like this :) Check maximized... notice the red circle on a left... and yes, this one is cartoony but fits great to the jungle region setting, IMO ofc

I can't wait to see it ingame (though it's definitely going to kill my PC). :D Yeah, the texture gained some details, lost other details, and lost the compression artefacts. You might be right that it's a reasonable trade-off.

This v2 of hedge texture took me WAAAY too long to create and tune so it looks good ingame, but its used in a lot of places so it will be worth a while I hope :) And Ive actually learned something as well...

HEDGE v2

....and a same story with this walk-thru archway in dungeons... lots of testing and tuning, but now Im content with it + plus I like my invention with the soil on the floor. New wall texture as well... Ive learned how to add a lots of photoreal detail to a simple hand drawn cartoony textures, and this is the resulting style I like. The best from both worlds Id say. Same approach is used on the wooden planks...

This stuff looks excellent.

Thanks for dropping by Jay!

There are 3 types of wooden walk-thrus in the dungeons, here are the last two... they are sometimes merged in a longer tunnel, so I made them work together when this happens. I also added a spider web for thats a necessity in any dungeon :twisted: Not many options to place it anywhere, because textures repeat a lot, so Im glad I found this decent place ... u can see the dirty wood more closely. This used to be a clean cartoony texture..

CAVE
Finally met some cave... this one is very similar to the starting place in Privateers hold

...and the gate leading to all caves. Spend a unholy amount of time on this one... also because the model is bugged and I wanted the textures to mask the problems which I managed to do. Theres a small gift for all arachnofobiacs if u look into the web closely. Because if you are affraid of the spiders, you dont go into the underground caves :twisted: :twisted:

Thanks! Means something from you, as you did the best textures around here hands down! I will release a work in progress texture set soon, maybe this weekend. Because I want some feedback in a sense, that Daggerfall uses many textures in many ways, so you dont really know, if the texture you made fitting here, wont be causing problems there... its a headache :) So maybe I can get info about this when ppl roam the map...

I found interresting way to detect textures. Just upscale so I can write on them... than I go around and see... like this :P I know wooden planks are archive 067 so... this is 067_14-0 etc.

Will use this approach from now on..

PS: today I experimented with some texture generators, nothing stellar was achieved, I will stay with the tRusty Photoshop for now...
