Ok, so after pulling my hair out trying to figure out what was wrong much of the day....
Here is a sampler of signage. The sign on top is an assemblage of the tileset I worked
up over the last several days. The two beneath it are low poly boxes with texture.
First one is a dxt5 based dds with bump at 2048x2048. The second is a TGA file with
bump at 1024 x 1024. Now, I did a TGA at 2048 and there is little difference between
the high res texture and the low res - so little it isn't worth showing IMHO; but, I have
it if anyone is interested in seeing it. The color differential is not in the format, it is simply
rendered under a pale blue omni.. which I haven't decided if I like at the moment; but, ..
Will probably redo the texture in white and go on; but, overall happy with the dxt5 texture.
