Hello all!

So, I need some serious help. I've been working on several projects in which I can't get the textures to work properly in the GECK. I have this problem where if I have a modded armor and I tweak the diffuse then make a new Texture Set with the original Normals and Specular maps, and apply my Tex Set to the model in the GECK it completely screws up the textures making them shiny. I don't touch the Normal or specular maps, yet it acts like I have neither in the Texture Set. I've also tried just linking the new diffuse straight to the model through Nifskope, but I get the same result when I add the edited model into the Geck. It also seems to only affect areas of the armor that are supposed to shine. But again, it makes the shine WAY more than the original. I've created new Normals and Specular maps to try and fix this but it either makes it a thousand times worse, or too dark to show any of the detail.

Here are some examples.

Here's how the original armor looks with nothing done to the textures or anything in the GECK:

Here's how the armor looks when I use the original textures to create a Texture set in the GECK:

And here's how the armor looks with my edited Normals:

Any help would be wonderful. I've been struggling with this for three days now and I just can't figure out where i'm going wrong. Thank you to whomever may be reading this for at least taking the time to.. well.. read this!

Does the normal map have an alpha channel? Also, spec maps should never look that busy, you can just color the places you need to shine with a simple dark grey.

@Superpele

The normal does, and I've already tried multiple attempts at making a new specular map. The problem isn't specifically the one armor. This happens to any modded armor (and more than likely weapon and etc.) I try to make a texture set for in the GECK. I'll use the same exact textures as included in the mod and it always creates this horrid shine.

@aarius

Also thank you aarius. That's not exactly what I needed right now but your video will be extremely valuable in my future projects.

[WAIT!!!]

I've fixed it! It appears that I didn't add the "effect" texture when creating the Texture set in the GECK. It had nothing to do with the Normals or Specular maps at all! thank you Superpele and aarius for the help. Even though it ended up not being the problem I was having, your help will help me down the line when it comes to making Normal and Spec maps. So thank you, thank you, thank you!

Have a great day guys!
