Tech 5 is a next-generation engine from id Software. Used on their most recent title 'Rage' it has also been announced that it will be the technology behind the upcoming 'Doom 4'.

Upon announcing id Tech 5 one of the first features presented to the public was the inclusion of Virtual Texturing supporting textures with resolutions up to 128,000 x 128,000. This technique allows the engine to automatically stream textures into memory as needed, meaning that the developer need not concern themselves with memory restraints or texture limits. A stand-out feature of id Tech 5 to developers is it's resources for cross-platform development allowing both consoles and the PC audiences to take advantage of it.

Some other features of the id Tech 5 processing structure include:

  • Collision Detection
  • Animation Blend
  • Obstacle Avoidance
  • Transparency Processing
  • Cloth Simulation
  • Water Surface Simulation

Photo to Seamless texture

Textures Tutorial 13 comments

The tutorial goes through the process of making a seamless texture out of a photo found on the all beloved cgtextures.com. Also meaning making it tilable and removing noticeable repetitive marks.


You need to atleast have a basic understanding of photoshop and it helps to know the hotkeys, even if I mention all I use. But this tutorial should fit perfectly for beginners I believe.

Since DOOM 4 has been released a couple days ago, is idTech5 going to follow the tradition of releasing the previous idTech engine's source to the community as GPL?

The Idtech5 engine should be named StaticEngine, because all, from shadows to objects is static and fixed with glue in the 3d world, its a big disappointment and a step back from the awesome IdTech4 and IdTech3, but i hope they get again the in the correct way on Doom 4, i just want like Doom 3 but better and more wide spaces but dark and scary, very scary !!! :D

You're just as dumb here as you are in doom3world.

Everything was static in Rage, yes. Idtech 5 is a tool. Nothing you build with it has to be exactly like Rage.

Just like Crysis 2 doesn't look as nice as crysis 1, but cryengine 3 ***** all over cryengine 2 in every conceivable way.
