Happy Halloween, taffers.  Here are the textures from 5 of the photos I selected from that collection of photos.  Hopefully some of you mappers will find this useful.  I apologise for not making this idTech4/TDM-friendly out-of-the-box but honestly, it's been well over a decade since I dabbled with that engine.  I figure you guys won't have any problems getting that done, since the DDS files should be compatible, and the highMaterial file (you can open with any text editor) can be translated to an MTR file pretty easily.

There are 3 thin windows and 1 wide window that are supposed to be decorated with geometry, and 1 circular ceiling material consisting of many smaller windows that would probably be used as is, decorated with circular geometry around it, since it would be fairly high up on the ceiling.  Just wanted to mention that to clarify why some of the textures are the way they are.

So anyway, hope they're useful and happy mapping!

You can easily take the reflection texture (rfl) and drain the luminance out of it to create an alpha channel for the diffuse, if you want a simple transparent blend.  If you mean 'casting filtered light through the glass' in a literal way - not in these engines.  However, you can fake that by using a lightshader with the luminance (lmn) texture casting through it.  There are a few approaches one could take to cheat this effect.  A more sophisticated engine is required to literally do what I think you have in mind, though.

I forgot to mention - everything in that ZIP retains the CC0 license, so anyone can use it for any project they wish.  Thanks goes to Paul Wellauer for the original photos and they are the one who should rightfully be credited.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:
