Have everything working on my mod other than the quality of my normal map. It works, it just looks like it has acne, which makes for a pretty awful looking final product. Can anyone give me pointers on what I might be doing wrong?

I use the Nvidia plug-in for Photoshop. I've tried about every different setting I can to change the outcome, but they all end up about the same - covered with small bump texture while the original Bethesda normal map is smooth.


The only thing I can think that might be throwing things off is I have to crank the scale up to 40 just to get the main texture to more or less match the original. Anything less than that and you can barely see any detail in the _n.dds file.

I would really appreciate any feedback or ideas you might have. Like I said my normal map works, but it makes the whole device look pretty shoddy with all the extra texture. Thanks for giving it a head scratch for me!

We should get a FO3 modding section, and put Catsim in charge of it.

I was giving you a compliment fucktard. Keep it gritty, and never compare yourself to bethsoft, the anti-christ of game-devs.

yeah, man. I thought it was an improvement over the Beth version. Looks much more wastelandish anyway. I would check out this nexus we keep hearing about. They seem to be more your speed. DAC is too hardcore to help.

I got something

Where did all of our FO3 modders/etc. go?


And where's that guy with the fancy campaign that was supposed to be done way back whenever?
