What would make a textured modal better? Why, if the textures were actual geoometery of course!! This texture is completely 3D. IE, the textures that make castles look good is real. Consider if a Sketchup castle was covered with 3D bricks, how real it would work. The Shadows effect wouldn't just make the towers and turrets give shadows, but EVERY INDIVIDUAL BRICK. This particular texture can be tiled seamlessly, and can also be scaled verticaly (if the texture is on the ground) to change how far the bricks protrude.
