I think that TDM should have a decent medieval cobbles like Thief had. I uploaded the texture as cobblestones05_multicolour_irregular. Screenshots:

Verry nice :)

I'm pretty sure we do have cobblestones of various types, but those are a great addition! :)

We surely all remember cobble streets from T2:

I think the closeset texture we had was cobblestones04_multicolour but it's very regular:

yes, that texture has good normals and not noticeable tiling which is important for large surfaces!

 

Thanks PinkDot, that's exactly what I tried to achieve :)

It's only a model...

There are red bricks already, but I wanted something suitable for older buildings. Redbrick_dull_small looks very new and clean: http://img140.imageshack.us/my.php?image=newww5.jpg so I added some really old red bricks: http://img141.imageshack.us/my.php?image=churchyk5.jpg

Very nice! :) We probably could also some more variants of the shingles, oh and speaking of that, do you have a more hires version of the red shingles?

Darn, I read bricks instead of shingles :P No, sorry I don't have. But I plan to make better, high res version someday.

Thanks Bob! I uploaded new metal door: http://img3.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?1850259499.jpg

 

 

That's a tough looking door! Are you aware of the skinning situation on the door models? Thought I'd let you know if you didn't.

 

The doors have seperate hinges and lockplates. By seperate I mean there are extra planes on the door models, with skins we can swap the hinge tex seperately from the lockplate AND door. Or use nodraw on either the hinges or lockplates.

 

What I'm getting at is that we could use your tex as is with nodraw, or we can use any base tex that looks good. All we need is someone to create great base textures and more lockplates and hinges. Currently a few of the wood planks look good for bases and I have a couple ok hinges/lockplates but more would be great.

I actually like that wood floor, think it looks ok for old school wood tiling.

Yes, I know about it but I wanted to use this photo I made and removing the hinges from it wouldn't make sense. Besides I think it would be hard to get the same effect (hinges under bars) with separate textures.

I have also simple doors on my todo list, but a little further :)

Here's my Jolly Roger. I used Corel Painter which I got with my tablet to make the oil painting effect. I used layers to merge it with black t-shirt photo to make it look like cloth:

Where should I put it?

Looks good, though I don't know if it will be useful as a brush texture. It really needs a model.

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Even though I've been absent a long while, I still find myself dreamily wishing for the free time to do TDM mission development. When working on new research projects I'll find myself involuntarily thinking, "hee hee this could be a fun texture or readable or bit of map architecture." Or I find myself absentmindedly responding out loud to odd noises with a drunkguard-like "must've been rats!"
