    Dear denizens of TF"Maps. Can you tell me what texture scale this texture is at? One of the x/y scales is 0.25, the standard, and the other x/y scale is different, but can you tell me which dimension is scaled, and by how much?

    (It's a reaaally close in shot so it looks really over scaled)

    X. Look at those pixels.

    That's a strange question. It looks to me like the Y scale is half that of X--though whether X is 0.25 and Y 0.125 or X is 0.5 and Y is 0.25 is impossible to tell.

    Ah, of course. Lets call it a 2:1 ratio.

    If Y was stretched, the detailed spots would've originally been really small and I don't think they could have stretched into those shapes. If that makes any sense. X is scaled up.

    Calling Shenanigans. Neither are scaled. Both at .25. Badlands rock texture too, if I recall.

    I see square texels so I say they're the same.

    Z is stretched

    But really, I think that x looks to be 0.5 or so.
