The textures are about 50x50, but i have thousands, and i'd have to store 
precalculated textures for about 16 different patterns: it may need some 

I've really no idea on the average size of a texture buffer, but i suppose 
that it may fit....

Are there run-time color transformations available for OpenGL (except 
lightning or reflection...)

Is there a way i could set an alpha value on my texture and then apply a 
particular lightning/reflection effect, so that it is applyied only to that 
patches with a convenient alpha?
