Certain texture size is currently just one of those limits. Most important, knowing those limits and what you can do to work around them makes you more valuable than being just a great artist. If you are able to experiment with file size, compression, color depth, and so on and are able to get twice the number of textures into the game, you will not only free yourself up to do more as an artist—you will also be much more valuable as a developer. 12 Here the base pieces are assembled into a simple room and hall.
We will look at image size, too. This topic is pretty straightforward, and we will talk about height and width, but knowing how big to make your images involves a bit of knowledge about the technology used, the method in which the game world is built, and how the texture will be used in that world. A texture that is huge but on a small sign that the player will never go near is a waste of texture memory. Likewise, a texture that covers 80% of the walls of your level, which the player will spend most of his time running past, probably warrants a much larger image.
Think about the addition of other players and characters and their weapons. Suddenly you have thousands more polygons on the screen, a few more large textures loading, and other assets and events. In short, can you think of every possible thing the final game will have running and guess what your frame rate target should actually be? You probably can’t get a dead-on correct answer early in development, but an educated guess (have lunch with the programmers and question them—they’ll love you for it) and the awareness that your actual frame rate will be cut in half when the game is up and running in full will help you hit a more realistic target and prevent the total destruction of a game level at the last minute.
