Zeus' Substance Designer Utils Pack v2

Substance Fortress 2: Electric Boogoloo

Here is a collection of Substance Designer nodes I made for general purpose in making textures for TF2. I plan to expand this pack in the near future so stay tuned!

TF Brush Selector
Features 11 different brushes. This is basically the same selection as is in my Brush Alpha Pack

Some Brushes in this pack are by Macripley

TF Brush Splatter Generator
Basically the same as above, only this is completely procedural.
This may be somewhat funky and error prone but should allow for a lot of variation

Warpaint Bases
These all come from the basic warpaint textures valve uses for all painted items to give them their "wear".
These work well as base textures for things tho imo

Edge Mask
Take an input shape (make sure its almost all white) and this outputs a tf2-style edge mask.

You can give it various params to tweak its look like edge width and chip size

Blend Modulate

Takes a black and white mask and converts it to blend modulate

Brush Position

Creates a brush pattern that can be controled with a slider. Useful for things like brushy looking gradients

Pattern Placer

Allows one to manually place up to 16 patterns using transform controls. Has ability to do random color, rotation and scale as well as global controls.




Installing​

The .sbar file needs to be placed in a folder you specify in your preferences:

1. Go to Edit -> Preferences -> Projects -> Library
2. Add a file path by clicking the little plus sign on the right
3. Place the .sbar file in that directory (unzipped)
4. Restart Substance Designer

You can verify it worked by searching for nodes with the tf_ prefix
