Repeatable textures

Repeatable textures include interior and exterior materials, such as fabrics (both apparel and upholstery), wall-to-wall floor coverings, wallpapers, countertop materials, wood grain textures, roofing and siding materials, and any other generic texture.

Repeatable textures can be applied to flat, flowline, sketch, plane, wall, and cabinet objects. When applied to a non-texturable object, the object is painted with color= (or bgc= if color= is not specified).

A material is considered a texture if it includes a src= attribute specifying an image and if it occurs in a MSS other than decal or wall border.

When rendering, the texture is aligned with the object by matching the anchor= point of the texture material with the texture origin point of the object (as authored in the vignette).
