New Textures

I am in need of "decorating" the walls of my new map. Sandbox seems to be a bit lacking in that area. My question is: How do I make new textures (specifications etc) and how to I import such textures? I am using version 2.3

Regards

J

Add your textures into the "packages" folder and ingame type [/texture 0 "texture.PNG"] the location should be in quotations " " I don't think it has to be a .PNG but it seems to work best for detail, also if you stick it into a folder you have to add that
example: "textures/MyStuff/texture.png"

There are tons of textures we could add to Sandbox, but then what happens is that Sandbox becomes a mega huge download. I'm sure a lot of home users wouldn't mind so much but when downloading at schools you can really feel it. However, one thing we have talked about doing is content packs. Maybe that would be the way to go. We just have so much we want to do and so little man power than we can't hit all these bases at once. If anyone wants to help in this area you are more than welcome. Generally textures are a multiple of 64X64, though 256X256 and 512X512 are the norm for wall textures and anything that is going to repeat a lot. The more times a texture repeats, the more comp power it is using up.

To add new textures, if you are doing it to an existing map, you can try as Joe said, or what I do is edit the map art-config and enter it at the very bottom of where the other textures are referenced. If I want to be able to use that texture for any new maps I make, I would want to go into /data/default_map_settings.cfg and add in the new texture at the bottom of that. The best thing to do when adding it in is look how it was done with the other textures and copy that format. It is very important to put it at the end or else you change the order of the textures in your map, which means where once was one texture, could be another. Take care.

Remember when creating textures, an 8x8 pixel is the same as the smallest possible square, this is good to know when you need to offset an already existing texture by 1 or more squares.

Joe,

Thanks for the info for placing the textures. Most helpful. Also, love your signature graphic. Somebody likes God mode in Doom... Great game. Still play it now and then.

Mike,

Thanks for the specs. By the way, what bitrate should they be? 8, 16, 32?

At the moment, I have plenty of time to spare. I will try to produce similar decorations for original Wolfenstien 3D and post when I am finished. Could take some time but will try to get it done asap. If they are acceptable, and I can refine the process of creating the beasties quickly, I would be more than willing to help out.

Thanks again for your help, guys.

Regards

J

texturepack is in sandbox/packages directory? Try using .PNG instead of .JPG

Joe,

I have the image file in the texturepack directory. I have tried both png and jpg. No luck. I am going to try using the same image with Sauerbraten. Then I should be able to tell if it is my image file or sandbox. I suspect my file, but will test it anyway.

Let you know soon.

Regards

J

Just a quick question.

Can Sauerbraten's textures be imported into Sandbox? If so, how?

Regards

J

anything related to sauerbraten can be imported into sandbox, we use the exact same engine afterall :P

and you're not trying to use the texture on an existing map are you?
that'd require you to modify a map's -art.cfg

since you're modifying the default map_settings, test it on a newmap, rather than on an existing map
