Can someone please look at this file. I created some wall stickers to upload onto thesimsresource and they keep telling me I need to update the specular. I found this tutorial but still cannot figure out what they mean. This is a recolor by the way.
This is the message they sent me: "Your specular would be fine but it needs a black alpha layer. Wall creations and floor creations usually have a black specular, but also a black alpha layer. You will need to adjust the specular to make sure you are placing an alpha layer on it."
I tried deleting the bump map but that wasn't what they wanted.
Hi keenahmee , can I ask you why your specular is black? If you want to avoid any shine you should create a 512x1024 transparent png (I think for dds the trasparency is the same) and a 512x1024 completely black mask. Also consider that some game tops (if not all) tend to show the specular on top of the bottoms even if they are tucked in.

AleNik Your reply helped me to figure out what to do, i really wanted to remove shine AND to make the bottoms intact for shining of the tops, to do so, one should make the png black, but the mask.png must repeat the mask of the diffuse texture. Thank you)

I’ve been trying to remove the specular shine from CAS items without success. I’ve tried various combinations of transparent and black mask files, as PNG and DDS, but whatever I try, the flippin’ shine is still there! Well, I’m flipped if I know what to try next so I wonder if someone could look over the following check list and suggest where I might be going wrong.
* clone item - sheer mesh, french knickers * import my own textures .dds, delete original swatch - save * import specular image, 512x1024 transparent .png * import specular image mask, 512x1024 solid black .png - save
I’m using the latest Candy Apple S4S and PhotoShop. Ta!
