bug: texture scale in DR preview window not the same as in the game

I spent the morning aligning my windows inside and out with the wall brick textures, but after saving and dmap, it still looks off in-game. It's quite bizarre. I tried deleting the .cm and .proc, and running dmap again (several times) but it didn't help. I don't have any dmap errors either. Any ideas what is going on?

additional info: rather than adjusting the textures I edited the brushes, grabbed all the relevant vertices and adjusted the height of the window recesses. On the outside of the house I moved the window facades. Everything is appears to be aligned perfectly in DR, but is way off when I run the game.    🤔

Another attempt. I selected all the brushes at once and reapplied the texture, went to the surface inspector, adjusted the scale, hit Natural, adjusted the vertical shift till it looked good in the preview window. Again, it is not aligned the same way in darkmod as it is in the DR preview.  (texture is blocks_large_sandstone)

I've seen this before too - with that exact same texture.  I set up a brush with that texture side by side with some other brushes/textures and only that one had the problem, ruling out a general DR bug.  I thought I was going crazy.

Something is wrong with that texture, or it's a DR bug with that particular texture.  Or something 🙂

so it looks like the editor image for blocks_large_sandstone is totally different from the diffuse map, which is blocks_large_whitestone

haha, I was also concerned about about my sanity. Thanks, I never thought to try a different texture.

So I filed a bugtracker for this: 6281

It seems that the proper diffuse map for the sandstone texture just doesn't exist in the base game

      i am so euphoric to see new FMs keep coming out and I am keen to try it out in my leisure time, then suddenly my PC is spouting a couple of S.M.A.R.T errors...
      tbf i cannot afford myself to miss my network emulator image file&progress, important ebooks, hyper-v checkpoint & hyper-v export and the precious thief & TDM gamesaves. Don't fall yourself into & lay your hands on crappy SSD

      Does anyone actually use the Normalise button in the Surface inspector? Even after looking at the code I'm not quite sure what it's for.

      Turns out my 15th anniversary mission idea has already been done once or twice before! I've been beaten to the punch once again, but I suppose that's to be expected when there's over 170 FMs out there, eh? I'm not complaining though, I love learning new tricks and taking inspiration from past FMs. Best of luck on your own fan missions!

      I wanna play Doom 3, but fhDoom has much better features than dhewm3, yet fhDoom is old, outdated and probably not supported. Damn!
      Makes me think that TDM engine for Doom 3 itself would actually be perfect.

      Maybe a bit of advice ? In the FM series I'm preparing, the two main characters have the given names Toby and Agnes (it's the protagonist and deuteragonist, respectively), I've been toying with the idea of giving them family names as well, since many of the FM series have named protagonists who have surnames. Toby's from a family who were usually farriers, though he eventually wound up working as a cobbler (this serves as a daylight "front" for his night time thieving). Would it make sense if the man's popularly accepted family name was Farrier ? It's an existing, though less common English surname, and it directly refers to the profession practiced by his relatives. Your suggestions ?
