Some people have been asking for better cmt1b textures but you might want to wait for a while to see if cmt1b will be played in EQL11 or not.

Red done

Flags should be done pretty soon im redoing the blue because the red turned out so much better with a different process as im sure you would agree the red looks pretty sweet

great job man. hey is there anyway to make the extra parts 'alpha' instead of matching it with 1 specific texture?

if we dont use that texture then it looks bad maybe nothing u can do about that.

alpha blending requires something behind. Quake doesn't generally have that.
So no, quake engines ignore alpha channels in world-texture replacements as its only useful as a wallhack.
You can get alphaness in recent engines with func_walls with an alpha value of 0.99, but make sure your transparent bits are still sane in case your client or server or proxy doesn't support the alpha field.

Then just make the psd available or the alpha png available, so others can use it for their texture pack as well?

That would mean id have to create alpha channels for the textures, which i didn't plan on doing, nor really have the desire to make to be brutally honest with you
I suppose if there are people out there that want the 2 flag textures to be alpha channeled they could make them out of the base plates ill put in with the pack.
If the need arises then i will make them with alpha channels and shading etc.

Hey RaRe, welcome back! Your textures are always appreciated, especially since you seem to be the only one who creates them for maps that nobody has yet done. Everyone seems to create textures for Aerowalk, when we already have like 6 versions of it... Oh, and of course your textures are among the best! Those textures you did for Ultrav are easily the slickest set out there for any map. I wish you had completed the entire egypt set in that awesome quality, but I understand that it's a huge undertaking.

Anyway, you know what maps I would love to see faithful textures of? The Fragtown maps! These maps are huge classics that I believe still find their way around servers. I think all of them use the same textures, so completing one map should cover all 8. In fact, I would go with Fragtwn7, since it's the best one - and probably covers all the other maps too.

If you want a really simple program to just view/extract textures from .bsp files, use Game File Explorer:
http://mirrored.xentax.com/gfe/gfe132.zip

With this program, you can just double click .bsp files, and it will automatically show a list of textures. I think it's a bit faster for the purpose you need it for.

I used to have all the egypt textures and such zipped up, but I can't find them now. I may have to extract them all again.

Hey RaRe, I found the texture sets for Egypt, Maya, and Rome. I don't know if you ever want to complete the Egypt set or not, but I uploaded it for you anyway:

Looking forward to seeing the Fragtown texture set.

hey lightning, nice find. those are very frequently used textures of course and it would be cool if someone finished a faithful set as some are already done. it would kind of be like an unofficial add-on to match the QRP package.

I'm excited for your return as your work is very promising looking, I like the nice update to the 24-bit textures for 2fort5 and the upcoming bam4 work you plan!
