So clearly our textures were not... popular... to say... the least......

ANYWAY

So I wanted to show everyone what they look like in action. I think they are quite interesting, but we are free for judgment. Please take a look and give us your honest opinions. I may redesign them slightly anyway, though, unless a lot of you think they are some sort of perfection. So, without further ado, here are our metal textures in action!

Looks... good. But I thought you wanted to mix them with the original textures! They should improve the testchamber-atmosphere, but here they replace them. And, the chamber looks a bit funky... and I dont know if this is good or bad.

Well, it's a work in progress. I was wondering if it sort of trumped the Portal 1 feel...

I'm thinking most of these textures will end up being used in non-test chamber areas for the most part.

Let's say this chamber was made in a party mood for Kat.
One of GLaDOS' weirder facility changes. :)
I like the idea.

Alright, so it seems people DO like this!

You know what, I'll make a test running map with a simple puzzle or something and put it up here so everyone can play around and see what the rooms will be like using this texture set. Tell me what you all think. How does that sound?

Hmm, I think it's bit to brightr (could be due to fullbright though), If you have a sinister plot I think you should try making the enviorment bit darker than this.

The beginning is fairly bright, actually. Without giving away plot details, it gets MUCH darker and more foreboding later on. These are the special chambers designed for GLaDOS's elite subjects. They are made to be a bit brighter than her 'disposable' subjects because she discovered they responded better to a brighter environment.

I just realized half the stuff I have in mind will never even be mentioned within the game....

Definitely looks like one of the children's tests.

this kanda gives me a portal 1 feel though in a way the design of white looks more like portal 2 maybe instead of metal you make it more portal 2 looking with the white changed to black if it is nonportable.
