512x512 .bmp or (hopefully) larger?

Multiple formats - .tif?, .png?, .jpg? other???

There is bump mapping (obviously), but how about "decaling" - applying a texture like graffiti, signs, scorch marks, blood splotches, etc. over the top of existing textures?

Thanks very much for your time.

It uses the DBPro engine so the same texture formats will be supported (DDS, TGA, PNG, JPG, BMP)

From what I remember at the convention, 128x128, 256x256 and 512x512 texture sizes are allowed. Texture sizes larger than 512x512 are not a good idea - as they will result in severe performance degradation.

The engine uses decals for scorch marks and blood splatters in game, but I don't know whether you can apply these yourself in the editor.

Should we read that as -
"You can add blood splatters to the ground. - therefore you can add blood splats to crates, countertops, ceilings, whatever you like"

OR

"You can add blood splatters to the ground. The program only allows blodd spalts and only on the ground."

Thanks for the info David T!

Probably on top of crates, don't know about vertically (ie on walls).

How about you try making your own custom crate texture in photroshop with blood splatter on it and then add the texture to the crate .

*sigh* I'm an artist with some skill at Photoshop (but sorry not protoshop, photroshop nor frodoshop)

Yes I can make layers and apply blood splatters or bio hazard symbols or anything else I want.

What I really wanted to find out if I can create small seperate images that I can apply individually as needed to create atmosphere and immersion... otherwise I am doing a LOT of extra texture work that really isn't necessary.

I thought in the video they showed bullet hole's in the walls, if that's the case could you just change the bullet hole texture to a blood slatter by renaming the file to make a paintball game lol.
At least it shouldn't be to long before we find out what it really can do.

Yeah it looks like FPSC has a complete range of weapon effects on various surfaces and types (bullet holes, scorch marks, blood splats, etc.)

I'm looking to do more advanced stuff with the application of decals. Blood splats were just a simple example.

But then everything you shoot at will splatter blood. How about changing the object properties that if the bullet hole goes on collision with let's say an organic being, it will change to obj_bloodsplatter. Much more convenient
