Bloody Silverware Glow-in-the-Dark Blood Decal

Recommended Posts

While trying out Rustic Clutter Collection I discovered a minor issue with the Ruins Clutter Improved bloody silverware blood decal.

The bloody silverware (2 goblets and 1 jug) has a strange glow in the dark look to them, as can be seen here. With vanilla Skyrim + Ruins Clutter Improved only: here. They look mostly fine when illuminated. In case the images don't do it justice, basically in very dark lightning you see clear red rings that don't make sense.

 

Ruins Clutter Improved adds new meshes with a new blood decal to go with it and when I disable these meshes to properly try out Rustic Clutter Collection, which doesn't add new meshes and don't 100% fit the ruins clutter improved meshes, I discovered that Enhanced Blood Textures completely messes things up as can be seen here.

 

So removing the new meshes, with or without new textures, makes things worse imo and therefore isn't a viable resolution to the glow-in-the-dark look. I tried modifying the new meshes in NifSkope but that yielded only very modest improvements.

 

Does anyone know or have suggestions for how I can tweak the meshes or blood decal to reduce or eliminate the glow-in-the-dark blood?

Alternatively, a fix for the enhanced blood textures+vanilla meshes blood would also be appreciated because I can then use Rustic Clutter instead.

 

I should add that this is an accurate depiction of my nifskoping skills  :psyduck:

I can help with a personal fix, but a fix for everyone is going to take those mod authors making their stuff compatible. Do you have the meshes and textures for the mods? If so, just archive them and post a link. I will look at them if I have some time.

Awesome, I DMd you the link with what you requested along with some notes  ::D:

I've been able to partly fix vanilla with EBT by changing the blending on the alpha. However, the way the UV is mapped, you can see the blood "splatter" across the jug opening. RCI fixed on their meshes by this using black vertex colors across the hole. The same can be done for the goblets.

 

For the oversaturated RCI meshes, you can change the Base Color to some close to a blood color. That should fix the colors being too bright. Right now they're white, so that is likely what is making it stand out so much.

 

Either fix can be done. Fixing RCI would be faster and easier, but EBT looks better (texture wise). RCI should probably be reported to that author.

That did the trick! I changed the Emissive Color in NifSkope from pure white to a dark red, maroon kind of colour (#4c0000ff) and it looks much better already  :clap:

      Starting a list for all the mods in the current STEP guide, which are in need to be updated (or already are) to work with the current game version 1.6.640. I'm listing only relevant mods in each category (please correct me if i missed anything).

      Hi!
      I'm have made 3D LODs and I want to create a "performance version" of the 3D LODs. I noticed that the Step Modifications team has created plenty of 3D LODs for various tree mods with this option. I'm unsure where to start in this process of optimizing the tree models. So far, as you can imagine, the decimate modifier in blender seems to be greatly lowering poly count but at the cost of a deteriorated model. I have seen the term "flat trunk models", but am also unsure of how to do this or what it means. Does this refer to the trunk after running it through hybrid.bat? Any advice on where to start or what tools to use? Also, should I only concern myself with optimizing the trunks or would it be wise to include optimized crowns?
      Thank you in advance for any help!!

      I've trying to make trees, so I used speedtrees to create first tree. I've exported tree model to .obj format and textures in png. After it i converted png to dds. In blender I checked tree, connected alfa channel and it looks like good.
       
      Then I've exported from blender .obj and opened in NifScope, so all was ok, but then I started to put textures I fond problem
       
      Here you can see black color around leafs, so how can I fix it and remove this black color? Maybe something wrong with textures ?
