LukasKerman posted a question in Technical Support (PC, modded installs)Hey guys, so I try to add a few parts to KSP for fun. It all works great but now that I want to add a bumpy texture I run into an issue. It works in Blender and Unity but is very bright and flickering in KSP (The control thing up top). I generate a normal map from a bump map in Unity and as mention it works well inside the Unity editor as you can see below. The texture I use besides the normal map is just the regular on is use for the other parts aswell. Maybe that's the problem? I read another forum post where somebody said I would need to somehow mix the specular and the color texture into one? I'm not sure what that means. Thanks for your help! The Solution: Somehow the Unity internal Normal map generator from greyscale images doesn't work well with KSP. I downloaded the software xNormal and it works flawlessly when I generate normal maps with it. What a pain that was.. Nope, I changed two things at once and the real reason it didn't work before was I exported my textures to TGA files. THat works on regular textures but bump maps apperently go wild using these. Using MBM as a texture format works!
So I am trying to figure out my issue with some of my parts that utilize mirroring of mesh segments to optimize UV texturing space. After adding the normal to the part, segments that are mirrored have some strange shading. I understand the concept of normal maps with the light casting of red and green from specific directions, and I realize the reason for this issue, but is there some method of somehow "inverting" the mesh so that the shadowing is applied correctly?
