Recolor Poll Results

Poll # 1: 102 participants


Question: Do you recolor items you have downloaded?      Yes: 31%      No: 69%


Question: What program do you use?     Windows/Mac paint: 4%

                                                          Other Free Program: 7%

                                                          Photoshop:  27%

                                                         Other Purchased Program:  6%

                                                          None (I don't recolor):   50%

( I'm surprised I thought more people did do recolors at least for personal use. Dose this also mean that there is a 50/50 proportion of artists / non-artists as a whole using this web site???) I use Photoshop pro but was debating on purchasing "Eyecandy" (which looks totally awesome but is expensive), Not 1 person surveyed uses it so I guess it's not worth the $, I'll stick to what I have.


Question: Do you Prefer:      separate mesh with multiple individual recolor file options:  23%

                                          All in 1 file: Mesh and multiple color options:  69%

(Cool, that's how I like doing them. recolor packages are good too but more than 1 option per file helps keep the file list small.)


Question: Which is more critical to you:      Low memory usage (Less detailed - refined textures):  25%

                                                             High quality detailed textures (requires more memory):  72%

(Cool, I definitely prefer doing quality work. Although I also try to keep memory in mind, quality always wins out for me.)

Mostly that question was posted to determine whether or not I should use raw 24 / 32 or DXT1,2, or 3 for the image format in SimPE. Raw gives much better quality but the DXT options reduce memory)


Question: what do you think of the texture repository method (AKA: Master/Slave mesh system):

                                                      I Love it:  25%      (x4 pnts)  =  100 pnts

                                                      I Like it:  17%        (x2 pnt) = 34 pnts

                                                      it's OK:  45%          (x1) = 45 pnts

                                                      I don't like it:  6%    (x2 pnt) = 12 pnts

                                                      I Hate it:  2%          (x4 pnts) = 8 pnts

Positive: 134 points      Neutral: 45 points      Negative: 20 points

Overwhelmingly in favor of the master / slave system  :(    (personally I don't like it for most applications)
