Hmm, okay, I'll see what I can do. Did the brown Raptor have normal maps in the early builds? If those can be extracted, I may be able to convert them to CE-compatible normals which we can then use. That way we wouldn't be changing anything - in fact, we'd be bringing it closer to the original.

I am unsure what you guys mean by normal maps in this case. The early raptors are textured like the retail ones. No all-in-one texture like the Para and t-rexes. :)

The regular BMP images for textures are "colormaps" or "diffuse textures". Trespasser has been found to refer to "normalmaps" as "bumpmaps" though machf (?) discovered or insisted they were just normalmaps. It's the greyscale ones TresEd lets you export but not re-import.

What Draco said. Those monochrome "normal maps" you get from extracting retail models from TresEd are what I'm referring to, I believe they are referred to as bumpmaps. I could convert those to CE-compatible normal maps and use them that way instead.

Oh I see. Yes it has. But the ones extracted with TresEd are not extracted properly. However, here are ones extracted with CE's GUIApp:
Raptor-Longclawed-Textures.7z
(230.14 KiB) Downloaded 90 times
Luckily GUIApp extract these from the build 22 TestScene before saying Out-Of-Memory and stop extracting the rest. :)

Oh man. Yeah that's the type CE uses externally. I wouldn't mind it being included at the same resolution.

Nothing too drastic, just some terrain work.

Hello all. My latest version of the level has a more detailed barrier mountain range, a wall around the Sorna plateau, burnt trees, and a guard tower in the town. Planning for more of these towers once we know where the buildings go.

Also, MinePass spent some time analyzing old Tres materials and discovered with Tatu these ID badges made for the developers:

We have in mind that these could be placed in the level somewhere. Looking for community feedback on this.

What about them being hidden around the level and you can "scan" them at the museum for secret stuff to unlock for each one of them?
