Applying Overlay maps
Total Textures V1: R2 General Textures
The Original Total Texture collection was created in 2001, utilising the best methods and technology of the time. Since then, techniques and technology have both moved forward, and here at 3DTotal we felt that although the original collection is still widely used and highly regarded among artists and studios of all calibers, it was time for an update...
This enormously improved version of the original texture collection now contains 188 individual Materials, comprising of over 1300 individual, hand crafted texture maps and are all fully tileable. Every Texture now has its own unique colour map, bump map, specular, mask and normal map.
Included this time are 'Overlay Masks' which can be used over tiling textures to remove obvious repeated areas, and make it possible for the texture to be used over larger areas. With the 24 unique overlay masks combined with the 188 textures on the cd, over 4500 different textures can be created! This doesnt even cover the endless textures that can be created by modifying or switching bump or specular maps.
360 degree Panoramic skydome maps have also been added. In fact we have replaced the entire sky section that came with original CD. These Panorama's have been exclusively created for this collection and will not be resold or given away anywhere else.
Bonus Maps include dirt masks, shadow maps and the above mentioned skies. This new improved version of the Original Collection is now more versatile, broader ranging and larger then ever.
