All you need to do to fix the over dark areas is to brighten up the texture by 10-20 points. Could you make an example of that with the @JeffR textures? Just using the albedo as detail? And is it always the same level it needs to brighten with? It's possible to add a "brighten" setting to...

The change in blending, that Timmy mentioned, has a PR here : https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/pull/2051 so you can try it out for yourself is anyone is interested.

@Timmy it seems like it's mostly the same, except that filter-color they use when you paint it on there. I'd be interested in learning more about that, as it seems like it gives a great deal of control on how the painted texture looks like, and how "wrong" it looks compared to the original...

I gave that a try and it seems pretty amazing to me... the terrain looks way better and the blending is much more as I would expect. I definitely think this should be the default. For some reason the terrain painting tools are a bit broken for me... the mouse movement seems inverted which is weird....

Here's a small example of the detail-diffuse texture thingy. By default, the detail-diffuse texture will completely overwrite the baseTex color up-close. However, if you tweak the alpha channel of the texture, you can allow the baseTex color to bleed through where it is wanted. An example can be see...

You people always act like Torque does it all so different as in other engines, while the truth is, that Torque probably does it exactly like other engines as well. Torque was modeled a lot after Cry Engine and you can assume that the terrain will work the same. And if people cannot open images wit...

The basetex is always used by the whole terrain, the base textures of individual terrain materials are just used to generate the basetex which is then always used by the whole terrain. When I'm done with my level I edit the final basetex by hand, adding final touches and giving it a better look and...

Hi guys, I have a RC for the new terrain blending algorithm. You can find it here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtrTgygwv8wijutDuctc4erqhoSIdQ And here's a video showing it in action: jTawTt4Lkv0 What is it? If you're not up-to-speed on the work I've been doing, my changes revolve around two major topics. Fi...

Come on, editing the textures to make them fit just takes a few steps, desaturate, or partly desaturate, move up the brightness until it is around 128 grey, done, then you can test in the engine and make eventual fixes to the texture itself. The more options you give people inside the engine, the m...
