[1.10.x, others] Drop-in Replacement Textures v1.10.0.0


Recommended Posts

Yesss! The clues were there, it just didn't register at the time.

Drop your Replacement Textures into the "GameData/DiRT/Textures" folder.

All sorted, thanks for 2nd eyeball on my mis-config!

Another question - I'm trying to replace a stock part texture, but so far no luck, the stock texture is still used. (Previously i'd been overwriting the stock location, but know this is a Bad Practice since I'd have to replace it again after a future KSP update.)

I created a subfolder under GameData\DiRT\Textures, with the same name as the part folder with texture to replace, and copied in my model000.dds.

In the config file I should "...set the "TextureFolder" to the GameData-relative path where your texture files live..."   I tried "Squad/Parts/Science/[folder name]

I also tried locating my replaced part "texture pack with a single texture in it" folder directly under KSP\GameData, with other mods. 

hopefully relevant excerpts from KSP log:

[LOG 10:00:21.401] [DiRT.Replacer] Replaced texture DiRT/Textures/gas1_clouds

Shows successful replace on skybox and gas1_clouds, no 'replaced' entry in log for the two science parts. (Odd that it seems to replace gas1_clouds twice... only one instance of the file exists.)

Sometimes the textures aren't actually where we expect them to be, or even where they really are. For example: The barometer texture you're trying to replace. While the model is located in the Squad/Parts/Science/ folder, the texture is loaded into the game at the Squad/Parts/Science/sensorBarometer/ path. If you put your model000.dds file in the folder: "DiRT/Textures/Squad/Parts/Science/sensorBarometer/" it'll work.

Such as here, where I've replaced the same part's texture with the Jool cloud texture:

nnGiMJK.jpg

Best way to know where to put the replacement texture file is to grab the full path from the 'TextureName' in the ExportedTextureList.txt file. The string DiRT matches against to decide which textures to replace is the same as the 'TextureName' in that file.

Thank you!  Textures are being picked up now. Was not sure if I had to recreate a path for textures like this... I had hoped the path in the cfg would be enough, to describe the intended destination / ownership of files found in the folder with the cfg.

DiRT version 1.4.3.0 is now available on GitHub: https://github.com/cydonian-monk/KSP-DiRT/releases/tag/1.4.3.0

Change Log: 
- Recompile against KSP v1.4.3.
- Removed code which prevented DiRT from running alongside TextureReplacer or TextureReplacerReplaced. Obviously this means you shouldn't attempt to replace the same texture with both DiRT and another TR-derived plugin.

How to convert the png file to dds dxt5?

There are other tools out there (some websites even), but on Windows I use GIMP and the old DDS plugin. You might need to use an older version of GIMP (2.8), as I'm not sure the DDS plugin has  been updated for GIMP 2.10. 

If you're not on Windows, I think there's a .deb package for the DDS plugin for Debian Linux variants, and I've not seen a build of the DDS tool that works on any modern version of OS-X. 

As for using the plugin, you export to a file with the extension .dds, and select DXT5 as the encoding in one of the subsequent menus (I don't recall the specific dialog at the moment).

Links:

https://www.gimp.org/

http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entry/normalmap-and-dds-plug-ins-updated-for-gimp-2.8

https://code.google.com/archive/p/gimp-dds/

That's what I use. Others might have more insight or better options.

No, not at present.

I have plans to add support for individual kerbals, but it will be either name-of-folder based (which is inefficient for obvious texture-duplication reasons) or based on a small config file. At some point I need to go through all of the "texture bug fixes" in TR/TRR to see exactly which of those are still needed, too.

I'm not sure how I missed this one.... Otherwise I would've answered it back when you asked.

Do you mean SkyBox? GoogleDrive apparently forces you to have a Drive account and be logged in now to see Drive contents, so I can't look at your texture at the moment. What I can tell you is this: Yes, you should be able to replace the SkyBox. The catch: The SkyBox in Unity is split into six files: Negative X,Y,Z and Positive X,Y,Z. So if your texture isn't split into six files, you'll need to find a way to do that. I think there are a few websites which can do this for you.

As long as those six files use the correct texture names (GalaxyTex_NegativeX.dds, GalaxyTex_PositiveX.dds, GalaxyTex_NegativeY.dds, GalaxyTex_PositiveY.dds, GalaxyTex_NegativeZ.dds, GalaxyTex_PositiveZ.dds), then they should work perfectly.

Thanks for the spot on mod. Just as I like 'em! I was going to ask for a favor as I'm using Linux and not very good at it. I'm having problems getting the dds-plug-in for GIMP and all I actually need is a completely black skybox. So I'm asking for just one - I dunno 800x400 bucket filled black .dds file that I could then copy and rename accordingly. All help appreciated.

Here ya go, an 800x400 DXT1 DDS file (with mipmaps, which _should_ improve performance though will obviously not be noticeable), solid black:

Let me know if that works for you. Cheers!

What do I need to name my replacement skybox jpg

It's a cube, so you'll need six textures:

  • GalaxyTex_NegativeX
  • GalaxyTex_PositiveX
  • GalaxyTex_NegativeY
  • GalaxyTex_PositiveY
  • GalaxyTex_NegativeZ
  • GalaxyTex_PositiveZ

I don't know which one is up or down, left or right, but there are quite a few Unity help sites out on the web that can explain it better than I can. Can always just experiment as well.

I'm honestly not sure if a JPG will work, as I've never tried. At a minimum you should try to use PNG. If you have access to something that can create mipmapped DXT-5 files with a DDS extension, use that instead.

Making a cubemap is a bit more complicated than that, but in part - yes. You just need to cut the correct six squares.

Depending on the picture you might lose some of it. For instance: pictures such as the following are cut up into twelve pieces, half of which are discarded when making a skybox cubemap:

cubemaps_skybox.png

If you want to know more you'll need to use a search engine (Google, Duck Duck Go, etc). There are also some cubemap generators online where you can just drop in an image and it'll spit out a cubemap. There might also be some good resources for this in the older posts of the threads for the "Universe Replacer" and "Texture Replacer" mods.
