In an effort to organize this ancient thread feel free to PM Taoizm with any working links to online .mat files. Please add a quick description as to what’s in the material file as well as any 3rd party plugins that are needed.
I've been thinking about collecting materials from people that would be willing to share, and compiling them all into nice neato librarys that everybody could download. It's all about the resources. :thumbsup: Is anyone up for this? All you would have to do is "donate" 1 - 1 million shaders to the community. I know a lot of mapping is very custon based on the models, but wouldn't it be nice to have librarys full of stuff that can be reused like complete brick shaders, bathroom tiles, skins, metals, blah, blah, etc...? I know this is gonna come up so.... I really want this to be full of AWSOME shaders. I want to try and keep this as highend as possible (damn I swore I would never say that word ;) ). I guess what it comes down to is if this works and everybody thinks it's a cool idea, then me and a couple other cg guys will dig through and pick out the best of the best and add those to the librarys. Oh well, I'm not to that part yet :) So what do you guys think? Awsome librarys of downloadable shaders for everybody?
