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"

What is this texture sample?

I have only these two files that are ripped from a game, and there are only these two types of files:alt text The first one(I think) is just the base color.. But is the second.. a normal map, or should each color be connected to a different thing? Also... this textures: (can't upload image but it is all green) How do I make it work as a normal map and base color... (It's in RGBA)

And This texture:alt text when it appears iun the engine the backround is green(and it should be transparent) And these purpleish squares are supposed to emmit light... how do i fix them?

You just connect your normal map to the Normal the same way you did with the Base Color! The other texture: alt text

You use the color for the emissive color and you use alpha for mask. You use the second multiplier for the "strength".

Hi! The first texture you have is a base color for sure, the second one is, depends on how the original material was set, Rougness/Metallic/AO on differents channels. The textures you attached is an emissive and the green you see in the asset is the alpha cannel (the alpha channel sometime have a color, depending how it was saved). Since you haven't the normal you can try to get something with this site: http://cpetry.github.io/NormalMap-Online/

If I miss something feel free to ask!

Have a nice day :)
