Laying out a texture sheet for a fa├žade

One of the things we do when planning elements in a texture sheet is to gauge the relative size of the element versus the viewing distance and lighting condition. In this example, zoomed in on one of the modules we've created earlier, we have clear shadow elements around the windows from those deep recessed window openings and also a shadow line next to the vertical brick we put in. On the windows we have a different texture and if we reference our photos, we can see that these windows are largely white or off-white paint.

We can see in the window elements that largely they are solid colored, with something going on in the reflection of the glass and some sort of solid color up here on the top of the sill, which means we can get away with a texture element size that's actually fairly small. The same goes for the bottom of the sill and the sides as well as really the top of the sill adjacent to the window. It's up several stories. So really we don't need to see a lot of it ...
