Lately I’ve taken a break from making maps and decided to try my hand at making custom material. At the moment I’ve only created 2 sets of subway station wall tiles but i like the way they turned out, so i decided to showcase them here.
One has a mosaic look to the tiles while the other one has 1 colour throughout. Made another version of them just in case i needed a more dirty look to the tiles, with barely any reflective gloss to it
I’ve also created a blend texture to make it a bit more convenient
Blending the textures in the editor gave it more of a wet look (pics in the Additional Renders dropdown), so the opacity needs to be lowered, the good thing was that it wasn’t too hard to set them up tbh
I’ve provided a download to these materials below to use in your projects, one for the .vtex and the other the original 4K PBR. For the .vtex you just drop the
Subway folder in your
Half-Life Alyx/game/your_addons/materials folder and you will be able to use them, please DM if you guys have any troubles with installing them.
One more thing before I go, I made these materials using CC0 textures from Texture Haven and CC0textures, so i will also be classifying these materials I made as CC0, you guys can use them or re-edit them however you see fit, you don’t even need to provide me any credit (although it would be nice ). I can’t wait to see what you guys make and hopefully I can make more materials because it was actually fun making them.
