    Haha, it's me again. :D
    I am currently looking for a aluminum texture for a building's exterior of a night time map.
    I don't have photoshop and it is quite a headache to make it using Fireworks(yeah, fireworks), i wonder if any of u know from which texture pack can I obtain such texture, or maybe some tricks to make this texture.
    Thanx :D

    Well... not really

    The building's is firstly, mostly made of concrete. :D
    The exterior of the buildingis aprox. 1/4 aluminum, 3/4 glass texture.
    The idea generated from this(see attached).
    KL-Petronas Towers.
    Of course I won't make all those levels it's crazy. :D
    I had finished the floorplans for the layout, all I can say is there's a little Deus Ex feel to it, (or a least I hope) and the structure have been modified so it won't hurt the framerate.
    I hope I can finish the building exterior by the next 2 weeks.

    WOW! to say the least:D

    Anyways, why don't ya check the UT texture pack for that sort of thing? There are lots of futuristic textures in them(like some of the texture packs that are already open when you start the editor:))

    Good luck:)

    Thanx

    I scan through the UT texture pack but most of the metals are err, Dirty. :D
    But I found a great image coversion tool that can can ur image to 256 colors pcx format and Still looks good! (see attached).
    I think I will try to get photo realistic aluminum ,covert it to 8-bit and see for myself the result.

    Image Alchemy.
    If ur interested, u can get the tool here:
