H3 harness with H1/2 helmet? Pretty neat combo.

Actually there are elements from all harness variations in there (H:CE through Reach). However, H3 does have a predominate influence.

the_Farseer Nov 24 2011, 1:11pm replied:

Well the normal map just improved because the texture itself is Crazybuymp had more to work with when I generated the normals. lol. The diffuse texture does have MUCH better shading as well...the OG had none. haha

You use a program to calculate your spec map?

the_Farseer Nov 28 2011, 7:40pm replied:

I do. Crazybump takes the light/dark values of an image and uses them to generate a normal map. It's a wonderfully accurate program :) And the best part is that I only paid $40.00 for it!

880Zero Nov 30 2011, 5:45am replied:

You get far better results when you take the time to bake normals and create your own specular maps.

Though this CrazyBump gets a lot of praise, I'll check it out.

I know, right! It can't compare to using ZBrush but for $40.00 vs several hundred, I'll settle! lol

880Zero Nov 30 2011, 9:16pm replied:

I still think I make better bump/normal/specular maps because they're controlled more and by hand, but this program is amazing for doing background props I'd imagine. Wouldn't use it for everything.

Haha. Spec Ops was my next choice as well :) With the improved normal maps, the active camo shader that Codeuser made for me will look even better!
