Well now, it seems the new topic posting issue has been fixed finally. Anyways, checkout the textures I did long ago. Unfortunately I lost most of the work files due to an external hard crash. :( Only the final products survived the crashed so this is what I have.

the texture thumbs don't work. It's a pity, the textures look neat at 50x50 pixels.

I'm using a javascript pop-up to display the images which the browser window shrinks to it's resolution, try turning off the pop-up blocker to see if it works.

I don't have a popup blocker. Gotta be something else.

Not working for me either. Not in Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Internet explorer tells me to debug it... which I can't do soo, it must be broken.

Well, they're nice. But they're just 256x256, I've moved on to using 1024x1024 and higher texture dimensions...

Some of these are really excellent. However, they are too small. Should be at least 512 natural resolution (not blown-up or resized, which always looks like hell).

I'm going to try some of these, though. I still have some 256's in use, and they actually look very acceptable even at 1650 wide with the HUD. The water door is a nice addition, as is the metal lattice.

Great work! More please!

P.S. Thank you, thank you, thank you for Sewage 25! That has been one texture I could never find a replacement for. The one in the Hi-Res Texture Set is just terrible, but this one of your is sweet! Thank you!

Haven't visited the Pfhorums for awhile but just to let you know, I've decided to start redoing the whole thing in 1024, so every now and then I'm picking on the project.

What I have done so far in re-creating textures in 1024 formats:

They're too clean looking.

But if you could make some all new textures that were all messed up after centuries of aging, and if they were made to make the actual game look as awesome as the M2 Chapter screens, then add light blue fog everywhere, that would be the most kick ass thing EVER.

Okay, I've gone back and added some erosion to the switches, I think they turned out better this time.

did you look at speedy G's stuff?

I did, and I liked some of the details in some of the textures I've seen, though I kind of think that in some of the tiles, he should of made the a bit more recognizable like the original ones, but that's my opinion.

yah I agree, but they are good examples of the kind of gritty people would like to see.
