I've been working on The Pit for over a year now. Unfortunately, work has been insanely slow because of multiple distractions and procrastination, but every once in a while I'll catch a creative wind that gets me excited to work on the project again.
Anyways, what's got me excited this time around is the sudden realization that tiling textures play a major role in in large scale environments. Well, I guess I've always known the importance of tiling textures, especially since I've done so much work with them when I was working for Digital Extremes on The Darkness 2. I specifically remember doing pretty much all of Jackie's Mansion (the exterior parts) with tiling textures. When it comes down to it, using tiling textures is the only way to maintain a high fidelity texel density across your whole scene, without going overboard on memory consumption. Don't get me wrong, I think that creating unique pieces for the focal points and other specific areas is definitely warranted, but should be used sparingly.
