I produced these a few days ago but forgot to post them:





Texturing on that second shot isn't very good, i know (somebody even mentionned a "golf course", and i can't say i blame him :p).

I'd like to mix my lookup texture with a set of real textures. But for that i need a set of textures (grass, rock, sand, etc.. ) that look good, at a decent resolution (512x512 min).. and that was taken from a medium to high distance. No close up. If you know a website with such textures, please let me know, thanks.

By the way, i found the most hilarious "MMORPG-wannabe" thread ever: Worth a look

Lookin good!

yeah definetly need to do somthing about the texturing, if you plan to be down that low in-game =/

as for textures I would recomend Mayang's Textures but IIRC most if not all of them are close up, however, they are very large so perhaps a scale to 512x512 would give an impression of 'high up'?

ROFL longest class/race list EVAR. =D

Thanks. These textures are of a good quality, but i can't use them as they're all close ups. I don't think it'd work well simply by rescaling them.

Can't really help on the whole texturing front, but that MMORPG thread was hilarious:

I just found this one http://www.imageafter.com . Maybe after some edit it can be useful. Been reading your journal now for a while and man you got something great coming keep it up!

Have you thought about extracting textures from sattelite imagery? As an example, for wooded terrain you could use something like

http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=37.018659,-92.141905&spn=0.017025,0.026093&t=k&hl=en

Obviously you'd have to be a bit careful with copyright.

Dracus: unfortunately, these are also close ups.

Crayfish: using satellite maps, that's a good idea (not google's ones though since they are protected). It might not be very easy though: first i have to find good maps with good colors and quality; then i have to find a way to make them tileable.. but that's something to investigate.

I just took a look at some screenshots at

http://www.flightgear.org/Gallery/

Looking at the images, they should have
plenty of textures, enough to cover a whole planet :-)
Maybe you could ask them,
where they acquired them and if there are any
copyrights assigned to that material?

Thanks for turning up that mmorpg thread, haven't laughed like that for ages ;) And more than half those crazy posters came in on the OP's side, unbelievable.

Ysaneya instead of using colors to 'color' the terrain have u tried sampling textures (will be slower but will look better)

Yes, of course, that's the next step. That's why it doesn't look very good at very low altitudes (the flat colors aren't giving enough details). That's actually why i was looking for a good terrain texture pack (see my other post).
