Umm, is this supposed to happen? I have a Gigabyte 6800GT using the latest WHQL drivers, high quality, all options on, and 2x AA. I don't think dirt looks like this and why is the mipmap transition so harsh? If you look at the top center of the screen on the ground, you can see where the blurry "dirt" becomes glassy.

yeah, this is common problem with some ground/floor textures (Q4 maps are very "noisy") and normal offset mapping (ultra or high). Don't worry - coming "Uber" offset mapping will fix this problem

lol Actually I thought that this is a feature since this actually improved the default textures (at least some of them). It reminded me of a fractal algorithm where you bascially have the same details no matter how close you zoom into the texture.

Tertsi, I think the ground looks great! It doesn´t seem flat and is rippled in quite a realistic way. A hell lot better than what the default texture looks like. It would be nice if someone made a mod and improved the few low-res (ugly) textures that the game has, kinda like Fakefactory did with Hi-res textures for HL2.

Tertsi, I'm a big fan of your work, but those grondtextures don't look right. I think these textures arn't suitable for reliefmapping.
