PNG gets alpha from erasing/fading the image, but you can't fit a greyscale (heightMap) into it. Can you? Sure can, to demonstrate using a pre-existing texture in-engine: http://imgur.com/a/uM625 Reason the image wasn't displaying the rest in most viewers, applications, or editors in the second sho...

@JeffR Detail Normal Texture, Alpha Channel: Your height information. Won't this create horrible artifacts if you can't use DDS DXT5_NM? Or huge file sizes? What else except DDS has an alpha channel? PNG has transparency but not actual alpha. <EDIT> I like the idea of full colour diffuseDetailMap w...

Bit tricky. If you only need it during a singleplayer session, you'll want to do something similar to https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/blob/c83efa59e0a11fc15c68afaf106807643191ac6f/Templates/Full/game/core/scripts/server/centerPrint.cs#L47 + https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/blob/c83efa...

It''s certainly been discussed, certainly not personally opposed to the notion, of doing say, a pure multiplier though it will force pre-exisitng projects to update all their stuff. But yeah detail maps take 50% brightness per channel as 'don't change the color relative to the base texture' <50% bri...

At time of writing, according to https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/blending-modes.html the equivalent is one of Soft Light Darkens or lightens the colors, depending on the blend color. The effect is similar to shining a diffused spotlight on the image. If the blend color (light source) is ligh...

@monkeychops: He's simplifying the explanation a bit. If you follow the trail of that sgMaxTerrainMaterialsPerPass you'll note that it blends multiple passes. Terrain Layers themselves look to a rough equivalent of a splatmap, cluster up to (currently hardcoded 3) materials in one render, then layer...

Glad to hear it. https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/blob/development/Engine/source/terrain/hlsl/terrFeatureHLSL.cpp#L1060 was starting to get more than a bit long in the tooth. As far as the 11 barrier, that was a dx9 limitation for communicating between vertex and pixel shaders. Why we embedde...

Mind going ahead and dropping in https://github.com/GarageGames/Torque3D/pull/2021 your end, see if that clarifies things any?

@Azaezel I did a install with Cmake and code::block as the tutorial in the Youtube video showed. It works fine with the AFX branch you have. Except that the AFXDemo templates throws a Fatal error in Engine/source/gfx/gl/gfxGLShader.cpp @ 665 when I lunch the Torque application... Damn... The other ...
