 +====== Game texture usage policy ======
 +
 +Game textures may be called into a mod, this has the advantage of easily adopting the Foundation art style whilst also preventing copyright infringement.
 +
 +This method also has the added benefit of optimizing texture usage in the game engine by not duplicating textures.
 +
 +  * You can call a texture into a mod using the texture file name, however, it is not permited to directly package Polymorph Games assets into a mod.
 +
 +  * There is currently no official support for the discovery of in-game textures and their file names.
 +
 +  * It is possible to hack game files using third-party software however this is not supported by Polymorph Games, doing so is at your own risk. 
 +
 +Note: Publicly sharing of Polymorph Games game files and assets is strictly prohibited by copyright law.
 +
 +==== Texture use ====
 +
 +  * When creating a mod, game textures may be used to correctly align and scale during texture mapping.
 +
 +  * Blender: When exporting to fbx use the auto function on path mode (not ‘copy’) to ensure that only the texture name will be included in your mod.
 +
 +  * Maya: The default export settings should correctly export an fbx without also including the texture in your mod.
 +
 +==== Watermarked texture pack ====
 +
 +  * One option to make using in-game textures more accessible is to provide a watermarked texture pack. This is a possibility and one we will look at again further into development once final textures and file names have been established.
