Chameleon – Texture Replacement Editor

Postby Viech » Sat Sep 21, 2013 4:52 pm UTC

This tool has been available for a while now but If forgot to advertise it on the forums, so here we go!


Chameleon is a standalone GUI-based texture replacement editor written in Python and PyQt. Its main task is replacing a number of textures inside a .map file while applying scale factors and rotation to all affected surfaces. It allows you to:

  • Replace old-fashioned textures with high resolution ones without losing the alignment
  • Choose the target shader/texture from a cached database
  • Create and export replacement rulesets for later use

You can download it on github.
Responsible for: Arch Linux package & torrent distribution, Parpax (map), Chameleon (map texture editor), Sloth (material file generator), gameplay design & programming, artistic direction
