Free PBR introduction
FreePBR.com is a site dedicated to the video game development community and 3D community who are looking for quality texture maps using a PBR workflow. We love the idea of supporting indie game developers and 3D artists with free content for their video games and projects.
Are theses PBR game texture sets really free? Can I use these PBR textures for free in my games?
Yes. These PBR textures map sets are free to use in your games with no cost involved. Even if you make money off your video game, it’s all free. Our only requirement is that you may NOT redistribute these PBR file sets on other sites, file sharing sites, email, and so on. We will keep the source files on freepbr.com only folks. We also ask that you give us credit for using our texture files if you are releasing a game.
What are the technical details?
Basically we have created zip files with a normal map, albedo map, roughness map, metallic map, ambient occlusion map, and sometimes a height map. We also now support Unity with a PSD metallic file with the smoothness in the alpha. These files are set at 2048×2048 pixels in PNG format. That said, you can use these files basically with any setup.
We are far from perfect
While we like what we are offering, we are not releasing a perfect product. Feel free to let us know what we need to improve on. We can always do better, and would love to hear from you. That said, please be polite and constructive.
What would we appreciate from game developers or anyone who appreciates what we do?
We would LOVE it if you could spread the word about our site through social media, emails, blog posts, and so on. The more the merrier. Feel free to link to us and talk about us.
This site also using up 100s of gigs of bandwidth a month. We love to and will continue to provide free PBR texture sets to the community. Would you consider supporting us a bit and help with the server costs? If you are interested, check out our 4K Rocks Super 16 Pack for a small price. 🙂
