Nominate Poor Textures


Recommended Posts

  • 2 years later...

I'm glad this thread exists since I absolutely have a nomination to make. Every rock model found under darkmod/nature/rocks uses low-res images that look almost like Minecraft texture resolution, you can count the pixels with your finger. I saw some of them in-game as well and the low resolution is definitely noticeable. It shouldn't be difficult to see what I mean...


They're models but luckily using generic stone textures. Thus they should be possible to improve with a new image which may even be allowed to tile a few times.

There's a model which 100% needs to be reported here. Please take a look at models/darkmod/architecture/buildings/small_church/church_small.lwo: The mesh is pretty okay, however the texture is painfully low-quality. For this reason I'm only using it as a distant detail in areas the player can't get to which are clipped off.


Note that the rocks I reported last time are actually not a problem: The super low-res texture only shows up in DarkRadiant, in TDM they use a high quality and very well detailed image. Sorry for not checking more thoroughly before reporting it last year... unless it was that low quality in-game too and got fixed afterward, in which case thank you!

Fixed the broken cheapbeermud texture.

Looks like when it was converted from TGA to dds back in 2008 it didn't work right.

Current textures.

Diffuse: tfjyJtF.jpg

Normalmap: xTYKGaY.jpg

Specmap was kinda more of the same.


The only thing that looked normal, was the editor image, so used that with ai upscaling and I think it came out fine. It's at least as good quality and at least now looks normal.







And like a lot of textures, the bumpmap is subtle as well as the specular highlight shine.


I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

      Does TDM 2.12 add "30" to the list of FPS caps? I accidentally changed mine and had to look up a console command to set it back to 30.

      Going from DarkRadiant to Trenchbroom feels like going back to the stone age. It's great at geometry (prevents invalid brushes and vertex drifting like no other), but... that's about all. It's terribly underdeveloped. So far behind on so many things...
      Unfortunately it seems to be the only option for my Godot projects, as editors like DR and Hammer are too tied to the engines/games they were made for. (Hammer probably even has a license wall or something, anyway.)
      Sorry, just needed to let this out.

      Any Thief-Fan who also enjoys Soulslikes should give Lies of P a shot. The art direction is sooo incredible! Love it!

      Server definitely still has some issues. I think I've narrowed down where the issue is, so I'll take a proper look after work.
