You are wrong. It has 1 layer only!

Yes, I'm wrong.

Also I know that .dds format is very popular in games. It was created for the DirectX but can be used in OpenGL too.

Nope, Zarel is right. If you use Adobe Fireworks you can create layers and all sorts of other things with the .png format.

Screenshot from inside Adobe Fireworks CS4:

@Mysteryem: That's nice, I didn't know that! ow I like .png even more :rolleyes:

Hmmm, yes.
But it's too bad DDS is complicated to work with (needs to be converted all the time and opens in a few softwares). I remember that Mount & Blade (one of the most moddable games I've ever seen) uses .dds textures, they seemed OK, can't remember the file size.

But oh, well, this is getting off-topic, I'll do my part and go make some textures :cool:

There are many plug-ins on the Internet, and for photoshop too. :)

I know it's a very old topic but I'm learning about it and anything I can learn from what you write is valuable

What is the size of the model, for example if I made the model in SketchUp to what proportions corresponds?

Or if you model it in BLENDER that there is difference?

Hi mauricio, every program has its own scaling convention and it's own exporters, but in WMIT, a distance of 256 equals one in-game square. Blender's default .obj exporter has a 1:1 scaling from blender units to the unit-less coordinates of the .obj format. Usually I work in 1/10 scale in blender since it's more practical that way, then I just scale it up by 10 in WMIT.
