Free Texture Maps from TRU Textures with the 3D Artist Magazine

TRU Textures is honoured to be featured in the 3D Artist Magazine issue 53

On the front of the cover, there will be a Freebie CD; within that, you will find 50 Diffuse Tiling textures sized 2048 pixels complete with Specular, Normal and Bump Maps created by myself.

If you prefer the digital version of the mag,  there will be a download link made available to those who chose this option.

I plan on creating new textures for the Magazine in issue 55.

If you buy issue 53 today then you’ll find a disc bursting at the seams with content, including a 90-day trial of Unity Pro and the complete CryENGINE 3 software development kit! Here’s a run down of what you can expect:

TRU Textures Website Back Online

It was touch and go for a while, quite the stressful week!

We had to close both the TRU Textures Website and the virtual store within Second Life for almost a week due to server data loss.

Thankfully Martin (SL name Thorian Pennell) was a real hero and managed to get the server data recovered and everything back online in lightning speed.

Thanks to Elizabeth Tinsley too who as always, was there to assist and help Thorian test and debug glitches.

HUGE thanks for your patience and even bigger thanks to both Thorian and Elizabeth!

TRU Textures Website Offline Due to Technical Issues

TRU Textures Website Offline. 

I just wanted to get the word out that the TRU Textures (Textures R Us) website has been offline for the last 3 days and may be offline for a week or two due to server issues.

We are currently working on the issue and are trying our best to get the website back online ASAP.

As the TRU Textures virtual store in Second Life. runs from the same servers the store is also closed,  and again, we hope everything will be restored at the earliest possible opportunity.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any concerns or queries please contact us on
