PostSubject: Why do my masks stay black? (Maps)   Thu Jul 17, 2014 2:12 am

When I try to make maps, the masks turn out black. (I use GIMP)






I make sure it has ___Mask.png at the end as shown here:


When I'm in GIMP, do I need to make the Red/Green/blue colors have 255 and the rest 0?

Plus, I save it to: FH>Media>Terrains>Select the terrain folder I'm giving the mask to>Save.

So why are my masks turning out black?

-EDIT-

This would be the first mask layer:


This the second:


And the third one doesn't change AT ALL:


The weird thing is, it doesn't change my masks, it changes the entire terrain texture.

I think You haven't chosen a texture <3
Underneath MoonMask.png you have a arrow with a 1 next to it, click it and you can choose a texture for the black areas. You will find the texture is on "None", just change it to the desired terrain texture.

Let me know if it works or if theres still a problem

I know about that and I love to play around with it, but for some reason only certain parts of my map changes texture rather then my desired mask layer.

I'll go take a screenshot and update my thread.

Hmm,
Take a look at WaterMillmask see if it helps you, I always take a look at other thing when I'm doing something wrong.

Your mask shouldn't have any transparency,
It can't have any other colours like black

the WaterMill's masks work like it should.... I wonder why mine isn't turning out right...

I'm saving them in the correct places as well.

How do you see it? Like, I should take a screenshot of it from GIMP? I'm still new to map-making and masks so I don't know how to "share" them. xD

You can take a screenshot from GIMP, then I can see your layers, colours etc.

It can't have layers either, if it does go to the "Image" at the top of your program and click "Flatten Image"

I also gtg I'll come back later

I need to go as well for today.

I'll do that tomorrow. Sadly, I have no clue where my computer stores its screenshots. It will take me a while to find it.
(I always check if it has layers and none of them do.)

EDIT:
Nope, can't find it where my computer puts its screenshots.
