Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Saving a Texture makes it go pixelated

Whenever my texture saves it becomes pixelated. I can fix it by simply refreshing one of my drop down options. But re-saving presents the same problem. My texture is for channel masking. First image is before, second is after. (Look around the shoulder area)

Thank you in advance of any suggestions.

Compressing merges RGB a little bit, which is often the reason for noticing square-ish artifacts like yours. If its only a grayscale texture, set the compression to alpha, or one of the RGB8 ones. Keep in mind that uncompressed is bigger in filesize, but due to it being uncompressed you occasionally can get away with a smaller texture.

let me know if that helps. Additionally, if it doesnt, please show the texture in question.
