Importing a tile

hi, i am trying to cover a floor with a tile from the internet…

i cant remember how to import it into the tiles section in the paint bucket.

when i import it i can drop it onto the floor but how do i copy it to the library and how do i get multiple tiles for the entire floor?


if you have a tile image, import it into SU as an image (not a texture) context click it and explode it, you will then see it as an image in the materials palette. You can now apply that image to a surface and it will tile the tile across it. In the materials editor you can edit the dimensions of that material to make it whatever size the tile should be.
Alternatively you could create a blank tile of that size and apply the image of your tile as a texture to the same ends.

If you want the material saved in a folder this video may help.
