Hi all, where can I find good textures for free to use in my SketchUp city (specially for buildings and roads)?
I've already planned the city roads and have more than 50 buildings complete, but i've been using the textures that already come with SketchUp but I think they are not good.
So, if someone can help me, i'll be waiting.
Thanks in advance.

do i need to use any special program or sketchUp does it?

You have to use a software like msnpaint, and save them as a BMP of a certain size/dimension, then save them in the details folder where your SketchUp files are.
The details themselves could be from details of existing buildings on images on the internet, or pictures of details you have taken or already have yourself.

you can make a texture , then import it into your model , turn it into an entity , then it is possible to select the texture with the eye dropper tool :cool:

You can use textures from other programs also. I use the ones from SimCity 3000 building architecture tool kit. Its free to download and there are a whole bunch of textures in it you can use.

are you guys importing the pictures as images or as textures?
i dont have photoshop or anything, and i wont use the textures on amazingtextures because they're so common now, and most aren't really that good.
