View Full Version : bumpmapping maxis af nighty mesh troubles

12th Mar 2007, 1:08 PM
i recently made a skin on a Maxis mesh (alpha nighty) and it doesn't have bumpmaps :(
i wanted it to have bumpmaps as it looks much better with bumpmaps.
i tried to bumpmap it by following a tutorial at this place but,it only worked half,as it has the bottom part skirt showing from the nighty,not my custom skin.
i'm not very good at explaining so here's a side by side pic comparison :
what's gone wrong here???
if someone can bumpmap it properly for me or help me do it myself i would be very happy!!

i am *no* expert at these matters, but the first thing that popped into my head is that for the alpha editable things, aren't there 2 textures and alphas, b/c of the way alpha editable clothing works? Could it be you've neglected to change both of them?

Also, what base did you use in order to get the bump map? Maybe that has something to do with it. I've never had any experience with a bump map enabled mesh that was also alpha editable. Hopefully someone else can help you!
