    Stock textures quick reference

    maybe i just havent got the hang of it yet, but i find dromeds texture browser a little awkward when i dont know what texture i want but just want to browse those available.

    so i made a couple of standalone web pages with all the stock textures in them. great for viewing online or offline, opening in your browser fullscreen, and just seeing all the stock textures available. im posting these here in case theyre useful for anyone else:


    and the python script i wrote to generate these pages from a fam.crf is available on github. if you use a lot of custom textures, you might like to use it to generate standalone texture references from your own fam/ folders.

    Wow Vfig. This is fantastic. I always fumble around when looking for specific textures.

    Thank you for a wonderful and very useful solution.

    I'm sorry, but could you please write an example of a complete line in .cmd? I managed to install python and write "pip install pillow') but I don't understand how to write a command in the line correctly (I absolutely don't understand this).
    It would be very useful to me, but I do not understand very well what I have to write in the line to get it, could you please write an example if the fam folder is in the root folder of the game (A:\Games\Thief 2 - The Metal Age\Fam I created it is there separately and I store only new texture families there, it is convenient enough and it works for use in DromeED).

    p.s.
    And I apologize for the English, this is google translate.

    in that example—and lets say you want the result to be MyFam.html in your thief 2 folder—the command you would use would be:
    Code:
    python fam.py "A:\Games\Thief 2 - The Metal Age\Fam" "A:\Games\Thief 2 - The Metal Age\MyFam.html"
    the double-quotes around each part are necessary because you have spaces in the folder names.

    Thank you so much! Now it's much easier!

    Nice work vfig. Also wanted to mention there are zip archives available with all the stock textures organized and indexed by family, and shown to scale. I've been using these for years, very convenient. You can get them here (look for the "Texture Index" filenames):
