9. Level Mods > 72. Alter the Textures in a Level

Alter the Textures in a Level

Change the look of any map by creating your own texture files.

In video games, everything from the players to the sky is given a texture. Hacking the textures of a level allows you to make the level appear as you wish.

In this example, you will inject the O’Reilly tarsier into the Foundation map (see Figure 9-1). You can find the tarsier on the O’Reilly home page (http://www.oreilly.com).

To work with textures in ADI [Hack #50] , make sure that you copy shared.map, single_player_shared.map, and mainmenu.map into the ADI directory. In addition, to work with the .DDS format, you may have to add a plug-in for your graphics program (e.g., for Adobe Photoshop).
