Thanks you all for the comments.

The icons of the keys are all messed up.
Could you clarify this ? What is messed up exactly ?
Obviously I may have made a mistake somewhere but I haven't seen anything wrong ?
What is not working on your part ?
I have made a mistake in the first 20 or 30 minutes of availability of the file since it was missing the icon file !
Sorry for that. But it has been corrected since as far as I know.
Do you still see any mistake after a source update ?
Please report any mistake on my part in order to allow me to correct this as fast as possible.

Well I understand this since I did not mention it on purpose.
In the teaser screen shots I have shown a few days (weeks?) back I have 'mentioned coloured version of the locks and the keys (I.E. meaning ruby keys as red, emerald as greens and so on.)
I wondered if I should mention this anywhere but your remark show that I should have done so.
Anyway do not care too much about this and please regard this as bonus :D
You have a default neutral grey metal lock and some coloured depending on the models.
5 bonus model in all I guess.

thanks :)

Basically, the gems keys have the icons mixed up:
For example:
the Ruby key has the Amethyst key Icon
The Sapphire key has the Ruby key icon
The Amethyst key has no icon at all, and so on.

Nothing too serious, I just have to modify the atlas indexes ;)

But again, thanks for them :D

Ok, the items icon ids have been corrected.

The download file has been updated with a correct lua definition for items.
You can download the new file if you want to avoid manual editing in the lua file.

Check the newest file at GrimrockNexus

Thanks for the report crisman :)

A little update on my progress.

I'm struggling with the diffuse textures of my doors.
I can't determine what level of detail I should add and what kind of effect would look fine.

Here are five shot of the same design with various change made to the base texture.
SpoilerShow
1. Base texture, Clean wood and metal. Only scratch here and there.
Image

2. Added a layer of dirt on the metal and played with the saturation on some region of the wood.
Image

3. Previous dirt layer plus a moss layer on the whole door.
Image

4. Dirt and moss layer combined and played with saturation and light effect.
Image

5. A refined version of the number 4.
Image
Please, tell me which one you prefer and if they are good or not.
I cannot say myself, I don't even know if the design is fine or not any more...

Thanks.

I like .4 Best, .1 is good as well.

I feel like it may just be your normal map that needs adjusting. Give it more depth, or create a bump map of the diffuse first, and then make the normal.

I like 2 and 4; but if I have to choose, it will be the door number 4.

Yes, I have tried that already and I don't like the result at all. :cry:
It make the wood too bumpy, and the metal surface looks awful.
The light reflections are the worst...
The wood reflect light like metal and the shadow looks ugly.
It might be that my specular map is crappy as well...

I have re-started from scratch from the first height map just to adjust the diffuse before going further.
I'll try again with a smoother height map just to see if I can achieve something nicer.

Thanks.
