How to make a inverted subway tile?

Recommended Posts

Hey Chiefers...can anyone make a tile texture like this?

I was thinking that i could make a 3d object of tile and just apply it to walls...but maybe there is a better way?

Normal maps. Learning a few tools in Gimp or Photoshop can go a long way: inverted tile.calibz

That’s awesome, I have gimp I will look into how to make normal maps.. what about bump maps or other maps? Or do you only need normal maps?

For your inverted tile, a normal map is all that is necessary (my opinion). Googling 'normal vs bump map' will lead you to further reading. Here's a better version of the material - I removed the pronounced shadow from the left bevel so the fake shadow isn't biased to the left: inverted tile improved.calibz

David these have been posted on here before. Both of these are free to use and provide the various maps with the simple import of whatever the texture photo is. Shader Map is on your PC and Normal Map Online is obviously online.

Robert thanks for doing this...the tile is actually 3x6 so i tried adjusting scale down but the texture and the pattern don't match up...the original tile you had at 12x6 and now 

11 13/16x6...i could move pattern in x direction until it matches...perhaps something on the orginal?

When I "improved" the material the Texture>Retain Original Aspect Ratio checkbox got checked unintentionally. Changing the material to 3x6 is easy, just adjust everything in the Material dbx:

yes i did that but i was trying to keep your texture file the same exact size, once i changed both to 3x6 they aligned...thanks again..looks great.
