Texture resource site

Recommended Posts

Well. Me neither. But from what I gather it's ok to use it for modding just don't let people take it from your mod and use in their. But direct them to the source.

Timeline, though I can't find on what past thread this was linked to right now.

The terms of use seem pretty straightforward. You can't use the stuff outside your creation itself in any way. Gaming stuff must be non-commercial while other stuff can be commercial.

Well, I appreciate this anyway, as we weren't all around in '02.

Yeah, the limitations are a little weird. I think that this artist didn't anticipate the .WAD format, in which any used resource is easily ripped by anyone else. Still, I'm sure it's legal to use these textures as long as we don't also include the texture image files outside the wad file or something silly like that.

Ah right, how could I forget the newbs!

I bet he must be aware some games use the equivalent of ZIPs which are even more straightforward to unpack, so I doubt it.

In environments where people respect copyrights, they check what the author permits and don't base their actions on what they can get away with. If not, making copyright requests in regard to text is nonsense, because it can very easily be copied anywhere by various methods.

One could request attribution, another the use of necessary fragments only, yet another full use only under certain mediums. None of which is particularly more enforceable.

These are very well made and would look good in Zdoom. As long as you give him credit, since we're using it in a free thing, it SHOULD be okay. Of course, to play it safe, if worse comes to worse you can just ASK the author about specific use first.

I quoted all of them in the help menu to fit their credits demands. Some of them confirmed by e-mail that this was allright.

Very cool. I am going to bookmark that page for future reference. It looks like you could make some great castles with those textures.

That site has some nice looking textures though some might need a bit of work before they'll tile seamlessly.

The unique problem I had to work with his textures was Doom 256c Palette...

Also some textures are not patterns and you needed to convert them using a drawing program such as Photoshop.

Still surprised to see that this website was not known by the Doomworld community.

That's not a very unique problem.

Indeed :D
Apologies for my english mistakes.

Around 50% of textures from "Davegh" website can be directly used in Doom without real modifications of their palettes.
