Hi Everyone,

I have a bunch of new free seamless images ready for everyone here:

TXR - GROUND
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/

TXR - ORGANIC
http://soundimage.org/txr-organic/

Also, if you haven't already noticed, to streamline my site a bit I’ve eliminated the gigantic text block under the header image that showed all the pages on the site. Instead, links to all the pages on the site are on the right side of every page, listed under MUSIC, SOUND FX and IMAGES… (scroll down.) Simply click on the name of any page to navigate to that page. Then scroll down. The links appear at the right side of every page so that you can quickly navigate from any page to any other page on the site.

Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

A bunch of cool new seamless images are ready here:

TXR - CONCRETE / PAVEMENT
https://soundimage.org/txr-concrete/

Some of the TXR pages are getting a bit out of control so I'll be creating additional pages specifically for seamless images.

Btw more new music tracks are coming tomorrow.

And if anyone happens to need some custom music created, I'm doing that as well at very low cost...feel free to email me. (My email address is at the bottom of my homepage.)

Have a good week!

A bunch of nice seamless moss images are ready that might work as building blocks for ground cover:

TXR - ROCK/STONE - Cartoon
https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-cartoon/

TXR - WOOD - Cartoon

More new music tracks will be ready Wednesday as I continue my quest to provide looping versions of every track on my site, so be sure to check my other thread.

Have a good week! :-)

Well that's one of the greatest threads I've ever seen on a forum for all of the 15 years I've spent online. No, seriously. It's... It's a goldmine. I can really use things from your library royalty free, as long as I mention you? As in, "Textures and SFX by Eric Matyas" in the credits?
That's too awesome to be true, I'm used to pay for less interesting stuff :lol: sorry if I ask newbie questions, as I've just started dabbling into game creation.

PS : if you ever have time for this and want to do it, could you please add some explosion sounds? Especially shorter, sharper ones like gunshots or grenades bursting, and deeper, larger ones like what you'd get from a heavy artillery shell. So far, I rely on recording whatever explosion-like sounds I can find IRL, with gunshots being represented by firing range recordings and firecrackers... Thanks a lot for allowing me to develop a game that won't look like it's been done by a homeless person on Windows 98 :lol:

Hey there, you're very welcome! And yes, all of my work is free to use as long as you properly attribute me...(please see my homepage for attribution information.) And feel free to keep me updated as you progress with your game(s)...I love to see how creative people are using my work! :-)
