    This may not strictly be within the intent of this topic, but if I create a 1.5 material, using 2048 PNGs in the art/terrains folder for that level, written to the main.materials.json in the art/terrains folder, shouldn't it show up
    - in the materials list in the terrain painter tool
    - at the very least, in the materials library?

    If there's already a thread dealing with this topic, please point me in that direction. I find the forum search function to be of limited use.

    That's what I was trying to do. I've finally figured it mostly via lots of trial and error. There are no forms, guides, or tutorials anywhere clearly outlining the whole process for creating a custom colorable paint scheme that also makes full use of 1.5 materials.

    I'll try to post a guide or youtube video at some point outlining the whole process so others don't have to go through the trashy experience I had to in order to get it to work.

    So um... I tried to convert my old texture that had opacity, and I got it to eventually work but I had to disable
    //"diffuseMapUseUV": 1,
    //"colorPaletteMapUseUV": 1,
    or it would ghost parts of my textures. Does anyone know how these flags work?

    These just set what UV the texture is used on. So you probably made it on the wrong UV.

    I see on the bluebuck placeholder for getting the texture with pbr that the UVs did change between screenshots. Sadly, I don't really understand how the game can choose for UVs based on those. Thanks anyways man!

    Can you explain in more detail how to transfer the mod to PBR support? I don’t understand how.
