I followed a tutorial to create a city using .osm map file, and ended up with a red-colored city, (with red buildings), I wanted to know how do I texture it? Tutorial I followed enter image description here In the tutorial, he states something about a texture atlas, which I couldnt understand. Thanks!

Around 2:00 minutes at the step 4 of the video tutorial : compose the texture atlas. This texture is simply a single large image composed of several buildings facades and roofs images found on CGTextures.com. So this is simply a copy/paste process.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, Thanks for the answer, after composing the atlas, how to i texture the buildings? $\endgroup$ Jun 10, 2016 at 10:11
  • $\begingroup$ I am not able to explain it here better than it is in the video itself... What is your specific question about it ? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @AineshSootha, this video is surely made for people with some Blender experience. But you can learn more for instance here : youtube.com/watch?v=f2-FfB9kRmE. But many other tutorials are available. Search for "blender UV unwrapping" : google.fr/?gws_rd=ssl#q=blender+uv+unwrap&tbm=vid $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ texure atlas is also the name of an addon (included in blender) that helps you combine the textures of many objects into one like @lemon said in his answer:) $\endgroup$
