yes I was thinking about normal on terrain, I added them when implementing dynamic lighting. When Vulkan branch get merged I can start to import dynamic lighting related code again.

BTW there should be some appveyor generated installer for the vulkan branch soon.

When I was creating current diffuse textures for terrain, I did some experiments in editor with normal maps, looked awesome and was easy for me to edit them in a 2d software.
Do you have a normal map (in tangent space) for the terrain of the main map of campaign alpha ? Something crude, I need a map to check that everything works correctly.

Hmm. I could make one, but I need to know directions of +-xyz(rgb). I could make a texture with a classic directions, btw. :hmm:
I think 1-2 textures will be enough for your tests.

The 1st one. Just for your tests, not final.
Sorry, it's not that fast to create NM from diffuse maps that will look good enough.
I will make and upload two more textures later.

It can be normalized to reduce the strangeness of a bump effect.

it seems to me that it would be nice to create a 4th version of the pie format.
It would be nice if there was a numeric identifier, not just the name of the texture.
Does the texture need a full range of transparency? + normal vectors.

I'm a bit busy atm so I didn't make any progress but I'm still interested in the feature
