    Well, I got interested in a couple programs and put together this texture. Not sure what to call it so I'm calling it "Organic/Scifi" at the moment.

    Ive got some screenshots here:

    I'm just looking for general feedback. My goal would be to make a handful of scifi textures for an upcoming map, so this is just a starting point for me.

    a few things -
    For TF2 your normal map looks way too extreme
    Its way too repeated
    What even IS it?

    It looks like something that is better suited to a dark interior. A tad repetitive. I like that it has the appearance of not being just a flat surface. Not sure it fits the TF2 theme though, would probably have to see it in context and along with your other sci-fi textures.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what else you put together.

    Nice effort. I am not sure what it is supposed to be though. I would read through this Illustrative Rendering (Making of TF2) to see how Valve achieved their artistic look.

    Hope this helps.

    Reminds me of the inside of the alien spaceship in alien.

    Scaled up, tinted green and applied to some funky displacements yes thats exactly what I thought of.

    Thank you for the feedback guys. In hindsight I posted this too soon. I've made 4 textures after this one and I'm pretty sure that each of them are better. It is very difficult to make textures in the TF2 style.


    What I was originally thinking was a semi organic wall section having something to do with electronics. Unfortunately it seems that the only place this texture would look good is as the ceiling of a dark room :)


    But again, thank you for the input
