Custom Floor help? - Xanthos - 05-20-2012

I want to use a new floor/roof texture for Amnesia.
I already looked around and saw a mat file and dds file.
Can anyone guide me through making any of those files or better yet help me with a tutorial on how to making an entire texture.


I have Adobe Photoshop if that can help at all.

To make the texture you need to make a texture that is tilable, and to make your texture you use photoshop or gimp with there corresponding dds plugin. The mat file is created inside the material editor Smile

To prevent some mistakes perhaps, make sure the texture is a power of two as it is a .dds:

256x256
512x512
1024x1024
2048x2048

For a floor texture, it is preferred to use 1024x1024.
