Substituting a TEXMAP? - Willy Tschager - 2020-03-16

Hi,

I just authored a sticker for the 364 - Harbour Scene:

[attachment=4992]

which has been split off into subparts for reuse in other parts. The first candidate would be:

[attachment=4993]

https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/003829a.dat

Which uses a TEXMAP while mine is made of prims for primitive substitution in a viewer. Question is: Shall I rework 003829a substituting the TEXMAP with the subfiles from 004488a?

IMHO, yes. Please substitute this "pattern". This is not how we should use the concept of texmaps.
Vector graphics is always better than any bitmap, jpg or png raster image, when zooming in close to the surface.

Or, your code could be used as a fallback pattern in 003829a

In my opinion, there no reason this pattern should be a TEXMAP.

Imho this is the best thing to do. Offers more choices!
