place2dTexture1>Repeat UV / increase from 1.0 upwards

I just figured that out a minute for my project. But you do need a seamless texture to repeat.

Try here:http://www.cgtextures.com they have some tiled textures.

its good its a highrez texture. you should go in PS and modify it, make it seamless or randomize it a bit.

It doesn't seem like the ideal texture for a full floor. I'd try to find one that has a bit more width to it, so that the boards can be unique for longer than a small part of the length they should be.

I suggest you should look into texture mapping.

what i notice that I have only one small part of the texture, which its not going to be extend to entire floor, repeat uv's, it doesn't help, extending the texture with PS also it takes time, so I searched for the bigger texture with more lines of wood, same as you see in the furniture floor image, but the question is if I have this new texture below , My floor plane is 3m x 4m so I have to make the texture also 3mx4m?

moe Advice?

You don't need to extend in Photoshop "exactly" you just need to make a repeating texture, which is a relatively quick job to be honest.
Quick tutorial:
- Open in Photoshop
- preferable make it a square texture
- Filter > Other > Offset
- Bring inward on both axis 50%
- Use the clone stamp, with feathered edges to remove initial seam, then just tweak accordingly with stamps, and brushes.

Using a colour overlay is also a 2 minute job:
- open both images (original, and preferred colour)
- find the colour you want (or in your case, if I understood correctly, a snippet of the floor)
- Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur - use sliders accordingly
- Image > Adjustments > Match Colour - select new colour and use sliders accordingly.

Your latter texture is much more suited to a floor texture but it still needed a little tweaking in relation to the floor image you were going for. I altered it in photoshop (image attached) and you can repeat the UV's now with now visible seams (render attached).

If you wanted your original colour let me know and ill attach it.

Hope this helped,

Ash
