I’m trying to make some custom textures but they are a bit low-res for my tastes. Finer details like text could be better and I’m looking for advice on how to improve image quality.
My current method is to use Inkscape.
- Get the dimensions (64x80 in this example).
- Make an image twice the size (128x160).
- Put it on a 128x256 transparency to make the dimensions a power of 2.
- Export as a PNG at 180 dpi instead of the default 90 dpi.
- Convert via VTFEdit.
Fits perfect with the 0.25/0.25 scaling.
Any suggestions would be great. Perhaps an ideal way to configure VTFEdit when I create the VTFs?
