Great designers need great assets and level developers are no different. Many of the best maps rely heavily on custom textures and props, that's why this week we are challenging you to come up with a high quality texture pack!
Brief:
------

You have 30 days to create a pack of 5 or more environment textures (or texture variations) that are compiled and ready to be used in a PC game of your choice.

The game, theme and art style are up to you!

Things to consider:
------

This contest is open to all types of games and textures, below are a list of things to consider and help give you ideas.

- What type of game are you texturing for? (First person shooter, Platformer, RPG etc..)
- What textures already exist for that game? / What do mappers need?
- What art style should you use? (Realistic, cartoon, flat colours, 2D, 3D, pixel art, etc..)
- Is the material clearly defined? / Does it look like what it is supposed to be?
- If the engine supports them, have you taken advantage of transparency, bump maps / height maps, animations, light maps, glow maps, LOD's etc..
- Does the resolution and file-size fit the game / purpose of the texture?
- Does your texture tessellate? Does it blend well? Are there visible seams?
- Using the same textures over and over again can get repetitive, have you provided mappers with several variations of your texture? Example: Shallow water & Deep water, clear path, snow covered path, dusty path or light wood & dark wood etc..
