increasing texture resolution for vehicles, etc?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to increase the texture resolution by modding the textures for say vehicles? 

 

I tried increasing a dds file for the challenger from 1024x1024 to 2048x2048 and it appeared to be rendered correctly.

Yes it works fine what you have done. But remember just adjusting the texture file resolution doesnt make the vehicle look prettier, someone needs to redo the skin/template with higher details. So unless you got plans on making your own 2048 skin there is really no point in just upping  a skin from 1024 to 2048.

That's not really true.

Also, with a bit of photoshop skills, one can resize/resample the texture and retouch it to preserve or even add more details.

Cool, you learn something new everyday! And here I was trying to redo the textures manually in photoshop...

Thank you guys! Now I just need to practise how to make the textures. I really think when playing at higher resolutions the default skins look very ‘blurry’ which I’m guessing is because of their lower resolution..
