I think I have to disagree with that one. IMO I'd prefer slightly stretched textures over unaligned. I always felt the lighting looks worse on the edges of unaligned textures. BTW it looks like a base texture, but it actually is part of a wall texture :wink:

It doesn't need to be either! Align the textures to wall direction & pan, then u-pan the textures until they line up.

A technique that's always worked for me when aligning textures on cylinders with equally wide sides is to:
- Select every side
- Deselect one side
- U-pan the remaining sides towards the deselected side until the texture lines up
- Deselect the newly aligned side and repeat the exact same pan (e.g. 16 + 4 + 1 + 1), deselecting one side at a time.

You will end up with the cylinder aligned on every edge except for one, which you can place on the least visually prominent side of the brush.

...unlesss...... Sarevok's idea is ok on one hand. If you take a block and shape it into a certain size, you could expect at least two sides to look like they're cut.. which you can make it look like that when you use stretched textures. Not a bad idea... as long as you don't overdo it + as long as it doesn't look (too) blurry.

Why not just use Texalign? That's what it's for. Large blocked floor textures often work well on pillars as well and are easier to align.

May I ask how's progress on things? Also, does anyone have a working contact for Sarevok? Thanks in advance.

I haven't heard from Sarevok since he sent me an early version of the maps with my ice spider. This was years ago, though, so I don't know if his email is current. I'll send it to you just in case.
