I need feedback this is not a project

Post by DefconRazor32 » Sun Jun 26, 2011 20:13

here's a link to the wad: http://www.mediafire.com/?72ce73ibi7c2bd5

I came here posting a link for some experimental textures for software mode been thinking about it for two
weeks now, wondering if i should use them and include them on my newest build i had created or which textures need rejecting cause software mode compatibility is quite tricky cause no-one really gives me much feedback at skulltag only a select few and one of them has computer problems now. I understand if everyone is busy here and any feedback is welcome i just need to know what needs reworking rejecting and accepted textures and the names. I thank you all for you time in reading any help is appreciated.

Hmmm... I'm not really sure about these. I'm not even sure if "rust" is quite the right description. It looks as if many of the textures have been given a rust coloured textured overlay (possibly using a recoloured skin texture?) and, as such they have lost a lot of definition making them look as if they are coated in something (like some translucent mud or something) rather than just rusting naturally.

Case in point:

Rust wouldn't make the pistons/pillars/cylinders (whatever those bits are meant to be) as indistinct as that. I'm not saying that the effect is necessarily bad, but it doesn't really look like a rusted structure to me.

Actually yes they have been given a skin overlay which you are correct. I haven't had much to truly make them look completely like they should. I had added two different overlays one being a HELL8_4 texture from doom 2 and a RW12_1 texture also. I wanna know if these textures aren't considered rust then what should i call them then, cause if I'm not making anything truly rusty then what effect do you think it is Enjay that I'm making besides muddy. I only started making these textures in like two weeks from my research in opacity and i directly had most my research in dirty or fleshy to downright hellish in a software way from my recent projects which was just a one layer recolored base.


Also these were in what resulted in a merged two layers recolored in a palette index mode they lost alot of color from using the act file that gimp uses in it's doom 2 palette to convert the images into a doom 2 software mode. If i sound too nutty on my explanations I'm very sorry. I'm also very thank full on your feedback that they weren't really rusty but i haven't been doing much on gimp graphically just experimenting.
