Questions about textures
« on: December 22, 2007, 06:39:05 pm »

Hello. :)

This may seem like a dumb question, but how do you control how much of a texture is shown on a face?  For example, let's say I want an image to tile (repeat) x-number of times on one face.  Is this possible?  Also, where do I put the texture in the material box (ambient, diffuse, etc.)?  These are only a few questions I have, so also if any of you know of a good texture tutorial someplace, I would very much like to know about it.

You can tile the texture...  when you apply the texture (after going Settings > Component > Texture UV and press apply on the materials tab... if you want more detail on all that, please ask) you can hold down the middle mouse button and drag to cause the texture to repeat itself. Thats how I do it.

And to go 'ambient' 'diffuse' etc, from the materials tab, double click on the material and simply click 'Textures' underneath the Trans setting. From there, you can select where the texture goes, including bumpmaps etc.

I hope this helps  :)
