That sure is strange... It should look the same ingame as in mapview. There is a bug where the normal map disappears when re-loading tracks without quitting mxb, but I guess that's not your problem. It might be related perhaps? What size is you normal map?

It's 8k, but it happens with 4k too.. :(

OK further testing..

8k doesn't work. I tried changing it from a normal map to a 1 x repeated texture tile and 8k showed up black. 4k works, but I'm not sure how it will look in game as can't test right now..

I think it's a problem with the track.. Re-doing textures right now and am finding I can't get any normal map to show up properly.

Any ideas what might cause this?

On a serious note. Are you sure you don't miss any closing brackets ( } )? Maybe even in an SHD file.

Ok as is normally the way (and part of the enjoyment of modding) I figured it out.

8k works just fine, and hopefully won't cause any problems online but if it does I'll release an online version.

I had tried turning up MXB's texture graphics settings before with no luck. This time I made the normal map 4x as strong and turned up texture settings and it worked fine.

So, anyone running max textures will see the normal. Anyone running lower textures will be spared the big 8k normal and instead have to live with the old tiled norms.

Still not sure why it works like this but here it is just in case this info is useful.

Quick question on reflection maps..

Is it possible to have an object that reflects the active environment rather than an env map? I.e, water that reflects the land around it and the sky colour, which would match the different weathers.

Thanks :)

So your normal map just wasn't strong enough? How come it was showing in mapview?

Not currently I'm afraid...

Ok thanks for the replies..

Don't know on the normal map, it's definitely not right that it should shown in MapView just fine but not in game.
