They were batch-compressed by someone to save a few megabytes, don't know was it really needed. By the way I still have my original textures. :)

@Tzeentech: thanks :)

Made a lowpoly for the repair facility today, 220 triangles.

The textures were processed in a way suitable for web graphics, NOT for use a texture maps. I believe we are beyond that foolishness now.

While we are discussing this, I came to think of another similar issue: GPU texture compression. This is fine for colour maps, but looks quite ugly with normal maps (jpeg-like artifacts that show up very brightly in the specular reflections). To compensate, we use fairly high resolution, which defeats the purpose of compression in the first place. I'd be very glad if someone could look into this and disable texture compression for normal maps.

That looks easy to fix (https://github.com/perim/warzone2100/commit/8d95a87e74b4defae422b6b7a11fbb5db141bc6c). I assume specular maps should also be uncompressed, while tcmasks should continue to be compressed?

Thanks Per :) Dunno why I didn't think of mentioning it earlier. The most important is the normal map, but it might be a good idea to leave the spec map uncompressed as well.

@trevormanaze I plan to do it eventually, but I try to focus on the most used models first.

Why does everything look weird now? The textures are broken and the menus are green.

Hi
There were some changes to how the fragment shader works in wz 3.2. I haven't yet made a new release, but you can download the latest svn snapshot from the sourceforge page, it has updated shaders.

People still play with our mod, even that it isn't finished. And we are still too lazy(busy) to make something new or at least finish all the models that have work-in-progress status. :D
