As some of you may already know, both CreeperLava and yours truly have been -and we are still- working on a "portable or reused" textures GameMap for the ME games lately.
We all knew that many textures where reused during ME games development. And while some are the same texture basicaly, some others were also downsized at some point -most probably for optimisation purposes, hard to tell for sure-.
The goal here is to build up a report of those textures that were reused within a game, between two or among all three games, no matter if the size or format was changed or not.
From those, we have already found that some are exactly the same. Some others would require just a format conversion. And some others are just "close enough" so those are not valid as a "straight port" textures but as "material for portable textures" to say something.
At this point, we are working on a preliminary report that includes 6K matching textures for now. Results are not complete but promising enough.
We´ll be sharing our findings here when done as we hope this research could be useful for anyone else out there interested in Me games textures porting and modding.
