Blending Textures for Paint Tool Tutorial.

Postby GR1M » May 4th, 2010, 9:58 pm

Many people ask how to combine two textures to use with the paint tool, i never knew how so i thought i would figure it out. I was surprised how simple it really is, let me break it down into three easy steps.

1. Find the path to your texture.

2. Find what number your second texture is on texture list.

3. Code it in "Default_map_settings.cfg.

[Example]

Code: Select all

texture 0 textures/rock01.jpg
texlayer 520


The first line of code is showing the path to your first texture. The second line of code is the second texture your blending and its number on the texture list. In this case the last texture i imported to Sandbox was a vine texture which is the five hundred and twentieth texture.

Result:

Using a rock texture as the main texture and the second texture "vines" as the applier.


Hope this helps every one out there :)

One important thing if your using the SVN version of Sandbox, to access the paint tool its "Alt-P".

Tip for the new ones:
don't look for default_map_settings.cfg, but for the [your map]_art.cfg file, much easyer!

re-reading over the tut, does it save the new texture into something, or does it just make it there and then?
