    I've got an interior decorating idea but I could use some help making it happen.

    I need blown up, artifact-free versions of several tool textures such that they will have a DPI of between 180 and 240 on an 8"x8" surface- by my calculation ~1600x1600 pixels. TIF or PNG prefered I guess, for best quality.

    I'd like the following but some of the others would be good too:
    HINT
    NODRAW
    Occluder (minus border, and in capital letters)
    SKIP
    CLIP
    SKYBOX
    PLAYER CLIP
    ORIGIN
    INVISIBLE (w/ white text instead of black)

    Another 'preferably' would be slight color correction for aesthetic reasons (i.e. if you think the color would be better if it were a few shades off, then go for it) and consistency regarding font and capitalization.

    Why? I'll be ordering thick canvas wrap-around prints of these to hang in my apartment; the 8x8 squares will look amazing and be a good conversation piece. Also I can't get off unless I think about mapping so they'd be good above my bed ;) ;) ;) If someone does this for me to a satisfactory degree I'd be willing to buy them a 15$ steam gift card, but it really has to be well done. I'll of course be posting the results after I have them hung, and the blown up toolmats will be available for anyone else to follow in my stead

    <3 as always

    this website is stupid, why don't they support vector images? I can do it, but I do not approve of this bandwidth usage.

    Hey Message me on steam or something like that so i can send you these. It was easy because I already had like the basic ones done because I was also going to make my own posters and what not. I just got lazy and forgot about them.

    Here you go Mangy: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/4222914/MangyTools.zip

    YOUR FONT IS WRONG AND YOU SHOULD FEEL WRONG.

    That doesn't work very well...

    EDIT: Also added a SKYBOX without lines.

    Aliasing is fixed. Also, I wouldn't be so sure about wrong fonts when you consider that the soruce text is 8pt. It's Arial, right? Did some side-by-side comparison with yours, and the only difference I see is spacing between letters. (and my AA isn't as nice)

    Aliasing + higher resolution > antialiasing, when it comes to printing. Especially for the tetures where the text is solid black.

    Actually I'm pretty sure it is, unless it's Franklin Gothic. It's not Helvetica, if that's what you're suggesting.

    Oh, and "Occluder" isn't supposed to be in all caps.

    well the "A" bar seems too low for arial but I could be wrong. haven't done font matching in a while, I should give this a try

    He asked for Occluder to be all caps.

    This reminds me of a curtain that was in the window of a science classroom in my high school, a long time ago. The letters Fe were printed all over it. It's a joke that a nerd would get.
