Good idea for a topic. Here's my advice: Always use specular, normal, and diffuse effects on your segments, especially floors. It adds to the realism and the wow-factor.

Jup thats a good one, i' m still trying to. I know how to create them but i don' t know how t add them to my segment as one thing, they always turn invisible. I have another one:

Play with the lights and find a good balance between darkness and light!

That's an excellent tip. That's one of my standards; any segment or anything that will be used in X10 I always include a normal and specular map. Always.

Another tip: Take advantage of higher-resolution textures. Don't get stuck making textures only 512x512, which is the max in X9. X10 supports textures as large as 2048x2048. Which is extremely detailed. Point in case: my segments look excellent...and all of them are just 1024x1024 (yep, even the mossy brick one). I'm sticking to 1024x1024 for segments and then go all out with characters and enemies, making them 2048x2048. Also, the 2048x2048 resolution applies to all textures, including weapons, decals and everything else.

hehe, no not yet. I want to get my segments up and running first and then slowly add the rest of my stuff in afterwards. I might change my mind though and upload a few non-segments first...

How long does it take between emailing them your signed agreement papers to getting your store up and running? About 3 days ago I sent my signed papers to TGC, so how much longer do you think I have until I can upload my stuff?
