    Tech Doors!

    Release: Nov 21, 2009
    Author: Meshes, LOD models, And Collision Meshes by Alex Kreeger. Textures modified from Valve Software's Textures + Original Textures.
    E-mail: Kreeger242@live.missouristate.edu
    Version: 1.0.1

    Change log from 1.0.0:

    Updated the textures to reduce some noise, and toned down some specularity settings from .8 to .65.

    This pack includes a set of doors, in 2 seperate models..

    Tech_door_01:

    *6 Textures (1 plain, 5 with A-E decals) (normal mapping + env_masking)
    *1 Mesh
    *1 Collision Mesh
    *1 LOD model (for optimum performance)

    Tech_door_02:

    *1 Texture (normal mapping + env_masking)
    *1 Mesh
    *1 Collision Mesh
    *1 LOD model (for optimum performance)
    tech_door_02 - 1362 Triangles @ LOD 0, 680 @ LOD 1


    Zip contains:

    *This fantastic readme file!
    *A suggested use .vmf, In which I provide a demostration example for using these doors. You are free to copy/paste this example into your map, as I feel it is optimal.
    *16 texture files (7.33 mb)
    *16 model files (1.44 mb)

    Extract to: "SteamApps\[username]\team fortress 2\tf" directory to install.

    You are free to use these models as long as you credit me in your map release.

    **YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO MODIFY ANY OF THE FILES FOUND WITHIN THE ARCHIVE, OR REDISTRIBUTE.

    Those look great. What are the dimensions of the doors? I'll have to try them in a map and see how they look. Definitely will make for something different than the Vault doors.

    The distress on the paint/metal seems excessive, or perhaps just too contrasting with too defined of edges.

    Ah yes, totally forgot about the unit dimensions:

    128.6 tall, 106.5 wide, and 9 thick.

    Boojum, let me see what I can do about that.

    those are really nice but they look more like they belong in Borderlands than TF2.

    Maybe these doors go perfectly with a space theme.

    This is another good example of what I meant earlier about TF2 texturing being tricky. Rexy definitely got better at it as time went on; even his forklift model was a lot splotchier in its first incarnation.
