Do I just edit the main image and save with layers?

 

If your images contain mipmaps (smaller versions of the main image), you can edit the main image and select the "Generate Mipmaps" option when saving.

I don't know anything about DDS formats.
I have a simulator programme that uses them to render backgrounds.

They come in 6 images (6 sides of a cube). 

I'd like to be able to modify these images and even create my own.

However, neither the native nor this plugin can read the files (https://drive.google.com/open?id=12cwQCYD6K-l3hBWTFNoM6NWq74yqcYE2).

Any help would be appreciated. TIA

That is not a DDS file, it may be a custom format that uses the DDS file extension.

You should try asking on a forum for the simulator program you are using, there may be a way to convert the images to a standard format.

Hello,

 

I am currently working on a Fallout76 ReText mod and some formats has been updated by Bethesda...

 

Into FO76 they are mainly using Normal as BC5 Signed and Diffuse as BC3 Signed.

 

Actually this plugin work fine with Fallout 4 textures but not with the new Signed models.

 

The only one plugin i found and working is a plugin for Photoshop CC from Nexus Mod.

 

My Trial version has experied and i don't want to pay 12$ bucks per month just to convert my textures...

The working plugin can be found here https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout76/mods/42

 

Can you please update your plugins to manage these files ?

 

Thanks a lot,

Best Regards,

BC3 does not have a signed version, are you referring to BC4?

Hello null54,

 

Thank you a lot for the update, i tried it last night and that seems to work perfectly ^^ (at least, i have the correct backup options for Normals ^^).

I don't tried to use the converted textures yet into the game but i will send you a feedback if something go wrong.

 

About your 2nd reply, i think i said a non sense, i was in error because the exported files were not correctly opened with Paint.net but were correctly opened with the plugin, for BC1 and BC3... so I supposed the format has also been changed... but in fact, they are correctly read by the game if i use the "standard" compression format from paint.net. I have the feeling that they switch to use the sRGB format wich is also probably not managed by the default DDS plugin...

 

In another hand, on your side, have you got a batch processing plugin that can be used with this DDS plugin please ? (you will save my life one more time ^^).

 

Best regards,

Have a nice day ^^

Paint.NET does not support batch processing, but you could use the DirectXTex texconv command-line utility.

It can be downloaded from the February 7, 2019 release, and the documentation for it is on the DirectXTex wiki.

textconv should be good for my needs, i found a little GUI here
