Final:

There are trees in the skybox, but you can see them only when the battle starts and the camera zooms from above=)

Nice work, that battle scene was probably one of the worst looking ones in the game.

To me, it looks a bit that the bushes have too "hot" colors in relation to the trees (or the other way around).
Just my opinion tho.

i agree with nightmarish, the bushes look a bit to saturated, i would decrease the brightness a bit and up the contrast a hair to even them out. As far as overall design goes, your spot on.

The problem is that it looks a bit flat, like a picture of bricks instead of actual bricks. Yeah, I know, as a texture that's what it really is, but maybe try fiddling with the contrast, or reducing the space between the bricks to see if that makes it appear to have a bit more depth.

The idea is good but in my eyes it looks a bit too "heavy".
Can't really put the finger on it, but makes my eyes hurt a bit. Maybe there too much parallel lines.

Instead of the grey bricks I think you should do a sort of rusty blend of a dark brown and red. I won't look so out place like right now. Maybe the bricks should be smaller too. Also, have some irregularities. I know there is so much you can do to a texture before it looks like it's repeating but im sure it's something that can be done.



Is there a way I could get the textures from you guys and texture them myself? I dont have the programs or knowledge to rip them but I do know how to photoshop if you need something done.

If you want, I'll work on that brick image, just pm me the image file.

The first one looked much better imo.
Though you should post the original with your screens to compare, since TA is all about keeping true to the original.

^ True. I can't remember what the texture looked like in the original but from the background scenery, the color doesn't match, lighting wise and color wise. The texture should look great without lighting and lighting should only make the texture look even better once lighting is placed.


Also, I would like to add, the light fixtures in the battle scene are orange so there should be tint in general on the bricks.

You can get the textures here http://dopplereffect.shacknet.nu/ff7/data/battle/battle.lgp/
Just pick a scene, the series are listed in the first post. Before starting don't forget to ask if it's done already=)

The original texture is grayscale with slight blue tone. These bricks completely match the size of original, so using other has no reason. The only hard thing about this texture is to test it (5 minutes from the nearest save).

UPD:

I'm not positive, but I think Kranmer made a trainer that allows you to use save states of some sort.  So instead of being 5 minutes away from testing it, you could be right there each time.

Is this too much of a change?



This is kind of what I was trying to explain. A darker mood for a darker environment.

Here is a better close up. The resolution of the PNG 2048 x 2048 but it's compressed in these views. Not sure on the maximum res we can have.

Edit - I just got your email. Thanks for the feedback!

Ok, so what are the rules when making a texture because I re-read the first post and I couldn't find anything where it says I must match brick for brick. I'm not trying to be difficult, I just thought adding a little bit of variation and keeping the exact amount of rows and making the player search the scene more rather than just noticing how flat it is.

Here is a lighter version.

original


Some of my questions were not answered. I'm not sure how large the file can be, right now im working with a 2048 x 2048 png. To me that's really high but maybe it's ok for this work. I'm new to this place so I apologize if I'm asking rather easy questions I may have missed.

Here are the set with a blue tone

I cant give you a decent answer unless I see it in game.
