    Clamp R and Clamp S?

    I'm trying to make a texture that is a quarter of a circle. When I flip them/rotate them to make a complete circle, it still leaves an annoying line between the quarters! What do I change in the VTF so the edges extend and I could still fit them to the block face?

    I noticed that the VTF plugin doesn't work in Photoshop CC (2017) for some odd reason. When I install the plugin and then open Photoshop it says something like this: "At least one plug-in isn't available on the system. You can find more information by selecting guide > system information"...

    Need Help making Guide

    Since November 2015 I've been trying to write a guide on the proper creation of VTF and VMT files. My slight language barrier and especially the fact that I'm terrible at writing things means that I have no idea how to do this properly. I have made 4 textfiles filled with random information so...
