Well ... if you guys start to understand what we're saying about you here, we'll have to resort to some untranslatable German idiom ... :mrgreen:

Irontower,

I have been using your texture mod with a few new missions, and I have the following point of criticism.

You seem to be very fond of making metal textures, and they all look very good. However, often this doesn't go well with replacing texturing that is using non-metal textures, like rock, sand or earth like textures. You can see that particularly well with levels that have outdoor areas, where your mod completely ruins the "nature" effect.

I therefore rather see your texture projects as level building texture packs, giving authors access to different texture styles for the particular theme your packs cover (mostly metal).

It would of course be cool if you would create good looking "natural materials" themed textures too.

Yes Diedel, your right. I know this problem. My primary goal was to create a more metallic look.
Hmmm... creating natural textures is no problem. I can make a set and give it as alternative download
so that users can choose between them.
For the next three month I'm very busy with my job (industrial heatings, and winter is comming :( ), so it will take some time.

Some hints for levels with outdoor areas for testing would be helpful. Didn't look much for those.

I agree with Karx, i mainly use your textures for level building Irontower. I have a whole big collection of your files all zipped up, and when I need a certain texture, i just get it out and go. It's very handy. :P
