While on the subject, helmet_n.tga doesn't seem to apply at all.

Just letting you know - Hopefully can be fixed alongside the boots :)

There is no normal map on the stock helmet. Hence it cannot be changed.
Boots have been tested and boots_n is correctly replaced.
Are you doing something wrong or has the bug already been fixed in Beta4 thanks to other changes?

Well, good to know on the subject of the helmet! Is there any way of removing the reflection? Would be useful for matte look.

As for the boots I'm pretty sure I've done everything right. I've done it with rider skin about 30 times trying to get the right level of normal and did exactly the same process with boots. Have also done it more than once with boots starting from scratch thinking it might be something I've done wrong.

Would it help if I uploaded my boot paint folder?

SOLVED!!!!!!!!!! Awesome..

It's the reflection map, which I didn't know existed.

boots_r.tga

Job done, case closed, thank you for your time :D

It was the lack of normals on the helmet that made me wonder! This whole normals / reflection map stuff is still mostly new to me..

Yeah sorry I forgot that reflection was a separate map :-[

No problem :)

How does it work for the helmet?

A map called helmet_s.tga controls both specular and reflection.

Thanks Snappe.. Much appreciated!

So 1 more question and then I promise I'll leave you guys alone for a while!  ::)

Is it possible to change the colour of the goggle lens?

Confusingly it's called visor.tga :)

Don't worry at all about asking lots of questions, it's good to know so I can add all these things to the docs and to the new templates zip.

Good stuff! I guess it does the same job texture wise as the helmet visor in GPB.

Could we possibly also get UV unwrap templates for the face_parts textures and whatever texture the eyes area uses under the goggles? Not sure if rider face_parts is that important as a block colour does the job for neck, but helmet face_parts and whatever the one for eye area would be great :)

Thanks for taking the time!
