Tips and tricks for texturing in ZE

Postby CT108 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 12:13 pm

Hey GT,

I've 'accidentally' found some weeks ago a little trick that pro-modders probally know but it can be usefull for beginners that have some problems with texturing in ZE.

#1 MIGHT BE USEFUL FOR BEGINNERS
When you're applying multiple textures in ZE, you should paint (that's what I do) the ground with spray and not paint, the texture's 'boundary' will looks way better

#2 I THINK IT'S USEFUL BUT WHY NOT
When you're applying 1 or 2 (maybe 3) textures only on your map, use the 'paint' tool

#3 VERY USEFUL !! (excepted for pro-mappers)
When you want to replace a texture on the map by another one, sometimes the old texture is not replaced by the new one. Why ? If you want to replace a texture by a new one, the new texture has to have a higher number than the old texture. For example, you want to replace the texture with the number 4 by the texture with the number 1, it will not work because 1<4 . But if you want to replace the texure 1 by the texture 4, it will work because 4>1 .

So that was a tips and tricks topic, probably one of the most useless on GT :funny2:

Yep, this makes it really easy to create really smooth curves in the textures. You just need to be careful that you don't have any areas with more than two texture layers being blended.

You're right, I can't say better
