MOD: Annotated bitmaps now available

Recommended Posts

The annotated bitmaps mod set is now available at

Combat Mission Times

courtesy of Michlos. So, what is an annotated bitmap? From the readme file:

Ever wondered what texture maps make up a specific unit, or how they are actually mapped to the underlying 3-d model? Well, an easy way to find out is to use the annotated textures provided here.

They are of the same aspect ratio as the original ones supplied with the game, but contain chequered, colour-coded and annotated (with the bmp's number) textures instead of the actual game textures.

The 16x16 background pattern allows for convenient observation of where textures meet, how they are draped over the model, and how much scaling occurs when mapped to the model. The consistent colour scheme (based on the last digit 0-9 of the file

name) can be used to figure out a texture's number if the actual number happens to be partly or wholly obscured.




Thank you Michlos for hosting this mod, and also thank you to the beta testers for providing feedback!
