Question to the graphics designer

Postby NCrawler » Thu Aug 14, 2014 9:36 pm

Just a quick question to the games graphic designer. I noticed that there is an alpha channel in the texture .xnb files. Is there where you stored your specular map for the graphics?

Since we're using both a color and normal texture, the textures are packed as follows
Color : r g b a -- where alpha here is only used for crystal/glass/fencing etc..
Normal : x y z s -- and here is the specular term you were asking about. It's only a global specular (so always white)

Great question!

We have been trying to make a texture pack but are having trouble imputing in new glass and things like diamonds and crystals. Also lights seem to be a big one that is hard to do.

Yeah, the normal mapping is gonna get you. GIMP has a normal mapping tool for coverting a texture to a Normal. As far as making it into a normal, turning the texture into a white is high, black is low heightmap image is an easy way to do it at first. Specular is pretty much white = shiny, gray = plasticy and black = dull. Obviously the shades between them are a gradient of those attributes.
