QuoteI guess it depends on where it's being viewed from
QuoteEdit; yeah it looks like it depends on viewing. The textures for the tops of buildings are at 72 DPI, and the textures for the ground floor (where you can walk right up to the wall) are at 300.« Last Edit: Today at 02:09:03 PM by WASasquatch »
QuoteAs far as I know pretty much all software ignores DPI info if it's been shown on screen.As soon as you start a print dialogue or are about to send it off for printing, only then do you worry about DPI.
QuoteChanging a 72dpi image to a 300dpi images does not add to the file size.
QuoteAlso, what monitor since 1998 is displaying at 72 dpi?
Quote from: Tangled-Universe on January 08, 2016, 03:38:42 pmThe guys who made those fallout models probably did it like that because:1) they downloaded a texture from google search which was set to 300dpi by a guy who didn't know what he was doing and used that file by itself or as a base2) they didn't know themselves what they were doing
Quote from: TheBadger on January 08, 2016, 03:45:51 pmI was thinking about web. I thought that images for viewing on web needed to be 72? I was conflating I think, all the different things and then applying them in the wrong place on top.
QuoteThis may have to do with other things, for example projectors, virtual reality, directx 12, who knows.
