    Many thanks! - a very extensive and useful list, sure to come in handy. It's getting harder and harder to find good texture sites as more and more start asking for payment/subscriptions.

    pff for textures just get your mod team to invest into the 3dtotal texture CD's at www.3dtotal.com.

    Extremely cheap compared to other texture packages like dosch and royalty free. You'll be using them the rest of your lives even in a professional evironment

    I'd just like to point out www.imageafter.com from that list: it destroys everything else there. Brilliance.

    This list is great.

    Thanks for sharing your free textures on your website with the community here. :) However, the link seems to be dead at the moment. Please fix it if you can.

    I'd also like to mention www.photofree.ga as it also has free textures you can use.
