Details

Please read and understand permissions for these textures BEFORE purchasing. They are primarily meant to be used on terrain. I also offer a full-perm set for builders

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

-Second life now allows for 1024x1024 sized textures for Terrain. This means that the detail can be twice as much as the previous 512x512. However, I have found not all viewers allow for them to be uploaded to the terrain yet, so try using a different viewer to upload them if you are having trouble, or use the 512x512 textures if you must. You will notice the change in quality almost instantly at near photo quality.

-This Pack of textures was mostly put together from photos I took up north from where I live. They are all seamless and very high quality that should help add a lot of depth to your sim.

-For the textures to look their best though, do not stretch the terrain too much or they will appear blurry. A fair amount of smooth hills will produce the best overall appearance. Also, not all the textures will blend well together if there are very dark ones used next to a very light one.

-Buyers may use these textures on their own sims and in their builds, but may not distribute them freely or sell them.

I love these textures to bit ... but

Posted July 24, 2012 by NightTurist 3 stars

hate to do this. I honestly do. Giving these textures 3 stars instead of the 5 they deserve. And I do this due to a slight surprise. See in the description about these non-transfer textures it says:

"Buyers may use these textures on their own sims and in their builds, but may not distribute them freely or sell them"

Now this is exactly what non-transfer meen to me. Evidently it seems I've never bought non-transfer textures before, and I got a gazillion of textures, but for some strange reason these (and perhaps all I have no idea) non-transfer textures can't be applied to a prim the normal way. Meaning that instead of dragging the texture to the window in the Edit window, you have to drag the texture onto the surface (face) of the prim you want to texture.

This is a hazzle I could have lived without. And simply due to this the 850L seems very expensive. Too expensive actually. I already had the 512 full perm textures but figured I would treat myself with these 1024 versions just for my own parcel. But I can already see myself in the future using the 512 ones instead of these despite the slightly lower level of details.

I have tried to figure out, even to come up for an exuse for Leviathan, why this box is not full perm. But I can't come up with anything no matter how much I try. I keep hearing this angry voice in the back of my head saying: "There's no excuse. Making these textures in a 1024 version would, at best, have been something the good creators in SL would have send out to customers that already had bought the 512 box. At worst they should at least have been full perm. The way things are it just feels ... cheap".

You live and learn and this lesson costed me 850L. I'm just happy I found out before I also bought the 2.0 box in this 1024 version. What a shame! Really it is. It should have been great and I would have loved to throw a 5 stars review at this product. But sadly I can't.
