To be honest, they are horrible.

They are just a bunch of photo textures, which are low low quality because:
  • the lighting is bad
  • the colors are bad - caused by the bad lighting - and didn't get corrected
  • they are not seamless - so totally useless as textures
  • the resolutions are not wisely chosen - that might cause performance problems

    You should work on the colors and rething their scaling. Also keep in mind that your textures get heavy seams when displaying too much detail (sorta). Don't capture that small areas in textures and they might get better.

you know if you want free textures just go to http://www.mayang.com all the textures there are 100% free for commercial use, sure they arent tiling or anything like that but they can be used as a base for others. Theres some great stuff there

Cereus, sorry, but the textures really aren't nice. Thrawn is 100% right.

Scott, thanks for the link!

The problem with textures these days is that they must not only come with a diffuse-map, but also with normal- or height-maps, and optionally specular-, luma-, etc maps (see http://www.ca3d-engine.de/wiki/doku.php ... :filetypes for details), which are not (yet) found in most texture libraries.

Thank you for telling me what I did wrong, I personnaly was thinking they looked better against my drawn textures, much to my partners dislike, I will try harder to make better textures, sorry for wasting your time.
