Iolas Textures : Snow tire track road [uploaded]

drowssapdrowssap Posts: 2,007 Member
if your wondering bout the iola bit its my name :) think its violet in english, but anyway figure if i need to search for this after, as no one is likely to have my name its a good way to find it

this thread i intend to add some textures/roads iv been making, anyone is free to use them modify them, heck you dont even have to give me credit,

now title is a slight misconception, its not actually a road but two side walks
this is because the road texture is slightly more complicated and tiles differently so this will work better as a decorative, or if you dont actully plan on having cars and just want the look
i am in the middle of making a snow road texture, but i will get back to that later, its very complicated

*note, cars will not drive across it, sims will walk across it*

to download the sidewalk texture: http://www.mediafire.com/?mgyyfzmwbgd
to download the snow terrain texture: http://www.mediafire.com/?cdtyy312mmg

files in order ...

Street texture
base detail: click anything as it don't really matter .it wont affect the sidealks
detail texture: anything

Sidewalk texture:
base texture: Imj_Snow_road.tga
Normal map: dirt_sidewalk_base_n.tga
opacity map: dirt_sidewalk_opacity.dds

intersection textures:
corner texture: anything
corner normal map : anything
cross walk texture: anything


up close its very detailed, and if anyone is curious how i made it, it involved layers, clone brush, mirror, scratch remover tool, and changing the brightness a lot, i spent alot of time trying to measure it up against the road, but i believe the scale is about right

iv also got a snowy/grass texture to upload + footprints in the snow texture

i should also add im not making a snow world, im just doing this to distract me from physics revision :(

and if anyone has any tips on making roads or textures id be happy to hear, i find them incredibly fiddly to make

    thankyou for the link! since my pcs been formatted countless times, iv lost all my bookmarks,i didn't notice you had a snow road before, i shall have a look at it,

    still trying to figure out how im going to go about doing it, think i need to figure out how much the base texture tiles



    finished my physics exam, now i have 2 weeks before i finally get my Chem exam, as iv only had about 40 mins sleep i cant guaranty i will be able stay awake long enough to upload the road today, but im going to start on it, and upload the other textures

    and YES! the store works, the launcher works,:)!

    what i am saying is that i did find out how the base road tiles for my snow road, although i have not looked at the file for a while myself :lol: I cannot quite remember if it was 4 or 8 times across with mirrored every second one. just have a look.
