Hello there.
I'm going to be around the hive again, and so thought of contributing something usefull.
This terrainart texture is named Good Time Blocky (sorry, couldn't think of a good name).
It is supposed to fit well with any 'city world, as well as with modern\futuristic enviroments.
Includes 18 variations.

Developement steps:
1. Texture materials & pipeline setup (~30 minutes)
2. Rendering (~10 minutes)
3. Editing of texture#1 to form 14 side pieces. (via Paint.net, ~20 minutes)
4. Creation of overlay to get it tilable (~5 minutes)
5. Manual processing of each of 17 pieces (open, combine with overlay, smooth edges, save, close, - 15 minutes)
6. Actually combining everything into one image (~5 minutes)
7. Uploading everything and writing this description (~30 minutes)

Sources:
PNG (quality preserved): http://vadim647.at.ua/src/img/091027gtb/overview.png
GTX (if you want to edit\look how I did it): http://vadim647.at.ua/src/img/091027gtb/GoodTimeBlocky.gtx
Overlay (makes the rendered parts tilable with eachother): http://vadim647.at.ua/src/img/091027gtb/temp.png

Comments are welcome.
In my opinion, this should be approved because there is a LOT of futuristic resources and no suitable terrainart to use with them. Also, overall, the terrainart resource section is pretty empty.

    Name of Skin: Good Time Blocky
    Positive [+]:
    -Bricks look awsome
    -Matches well with WC3 tilesets
    Negative [-]:
    -Maybe a bit repetive
    Notes:
    -Very useful, and I think it looks very nice to be honest. Keep it up!
    Rating: 4/5

    @Everyone: thanks!
    @Revolve: additional thanks for mini-reviewing :)
    Its still a challenge to get rid of repetivness of textures that are following the rules of fixed tile layout system.
    I've done things that found possible - shading, color, and texture are different for every brick in texture (excluding those 5 that I have used to make it tilable)
    Overall, I look forward seeing it in your (your, reader) maps :)

    I'd like to see more variation within the tiles to merit it using a 512x256 skin, right now it looks as if it would work better being 256x256. Nice use of the alpha channels with this, I like the boarders of this skin. Just simply make it a 2 tile variant skin from were it is now, or really use those extra 16 tiles ;)

    In real world this is the exact level of variation.
    I had 2 textures simply deleted by moderator because they were only 2 tile variant. After that 'event' I wasnt visiting this site for 3 month. I dont really want that all to happen again.
    [​IMG]
    Is that enough variation?

    Great tileset, although I don't understand why it is "futuristic."

    Good, really good but if you want to but it in the city, (in editor) make some straight tiles on the edge. It will look tidy. 5/5 +rep
