Usage

  • A second basetexture is used in combination with $basetexture for blending two materials on a brush displacement surface.
  • Used by the WorldVertexTransition shader to blend materials on Displacement surfaces (terrain).
  • The percentage blend of each of the two basetextures is defined by alpha painting in Hammer.
  • See Displacement for further information.

VMT syntax and default values

"$basetexture" "Path/TextureA" 
"$basetexture2" "Path/TextureB" 
  "$basetexturetransform2" "center .5 .5 scale 1 1 rotate 0 translate 0 0"

Available values

$basetexture2

"$basetexture" "Path/TextureA" 
"$basetexture2" "Path/TextureB" 
  • where Path is the filepath relative to game_directory/materials folder.
  • where TextureA is the 1st basetexture filename; ie TextureA.vtf.
  • where TextureB is the 2nd basetexture filename; ie TextureB.vtf.


$basetexturetransform2

"$basetexturetransform2" "center <float> <float> scale <float> <float> rotate <float> translate <float> <float>"
  • Used with $basetexture2 by the WorldVertexTransition shader to blend materials on Displacement surfaces (terrain).
  • The default position is: "center .5 .5 scale 1 1 rotate 0 translate 0 0".
  • "center" values are UV 0.1 coordinates.
  • "scale" values are UV factors.
  • "translate" values are UV 0.1 coordinates.
  • "rotate" values are 0-360 degree UV angles.
  • Note: You must include all variables.


$texture2

"$basetexture" "Path/TextureA" 
"$texture2" "Path/TextureB"
