    Default Textures for egyptian buildings

    Hey,

    I'm looking for decent textures to use on egyptian buildings - can't seem to find any with the right sandy colour. I'm also not looking for gritty texture would rather it smooth so they don't look like they are litterally made out of sand

    Got any suggestions on whats best to use?

    First, know that Egyptian Buildings would be flat roofed, often brightly painted, with only the most basic of building having a thatched roof (Straw was much to important a commodity for use in Brick making to be wasted on something like a roof). A little Google-Fu and the following link will give you some insight into how the Egyptians built their buildings:

    I cranked these out pretty quick using Genetica Basic.

    If you have anything more specific in mind, or modifications you would like to see, just let me know and I will see what I can do!

    I'll take a look through my textures folder on my archive drive.. I used to have a rather large collection for VRML world building, I had one world set up with an Egyptian pyramid and tomb. But first.. Dinner!
