======================= Construction =======================

   Style of Textures: Other (Solid Colours)
 Number of Textures : 57
     Editor(s) used : Photoshop, AdQuedit, and Paint Shop Pro
         Known Bugs : None... e-mail Brian at if you find any.
         Build Time : I dunno...  I messed with Sonya's original SOLIDS.WAD for 
                      a while before I figured out what was wrong.  Probably about 
                      two hours.

======================== Other Info ========================

All the solid colours are named beginning with "solid_", fullbright solids 
start with "fb_".  Sonya tried to included a light, medium, and dark 
entry for each colour.

In the original SOLIDS.WAD, there was a texture named "solid_g_pink" which 
actually turned out to be black (RGB 0x000000) for some reason.  I looked 
through the fullbright colors and found nothing resembling pink, so I have 
removed it from SOLIDS3.WAD.  (BTW, SOLIDS2.WAD is not available for the 
public, it was an internal version that I used when troubleshooting the 
origianl SOLIDS.WAD.)

The main problem with Sonya's SOLIDS.WAD was that the MipMaps (textures) were 
only 8 pixels by 8 pixels (which is what the AdQuedit manual says is the minimum 
size for a MipMap).  Unfortunately, Quake requires that textures be multiples 
of 16 pixels in both dimensions.  Oh well, no biggie.

Okay, now for the "British English vs. American English" bit... I assume Sonya 
made the title "Solid Colours" because she lives in Canada and, therefore, uses 
British English.  I live in the United States and use American English, so I 
probably would have called it "Solid Colors".  I thought I was going to make a 
point here, but I guess I was wrong... oh well.
