Default Trackhed's Textures


Well,

As many of you know and have pointed out, TF2 is kinda in the dumps for range of textures, so I have decided to get to work on some.

so far i've completed a few Marble tiles (neutralB&W, red and blue) and am working on the alternates for them (inverts, lights/darks, different marble vein shapes and tile shapes/sizes/formations)

Also I've started on some new nature textures (mostly dirt)

Now here's where the community comes into play.

What type of textures do you feel are most needed?

Keep in mind this is NOT a custom texture offer

I want to know what kind of textures you think would be usable in many different ways and expand the worlds we are creating.

This is for the community

We need a few more metal textures dirty and clean.
Any new skyboxes would be amazing
Concrete of various shades and ages
Tiled surfaces for floors and ceilings would be even better.

Its so hard to make the right textures for this game. I think all the TF2 textures come from 1 artist (not the model textures). That guy made them all since he knows the best what would fit. You can try to imitate them, but it's hard.

Reiterating Youme's list, the ones I think are most needed are:

-More metal textures (both dirty and clean)
-Wider variety of concrete shades (especially in "neutral" colors)
-Tiled floors and ceilings

P.S.!

Texturing is not that hard of a task to do!

HMm see, you need to put the opacity of the cracks really low, also paint with a big fat brush really quick. Rules are: impressionistic, but the material always stay clear.
The first image than looks like it reflects water
The black image should get banned

The middle one frightens my inner child. Nice work, though!
