    Are there any good turtorials on using blend textures? I've done some searching but I can't seem to come up with any. If not, does anyone have any pointers/clues on how to use them? I just get the dirt texture when I try to apply it.

    Use the alpha tool on displacements with the blend texture applied. Be aware that some of them look very different in game and you might need to experiment a bit with them.

    I think it was Acegikmo who made a TF2 blend texture library which you can search for and download on this forum.

    It works similarly to working displacement geometry, except you're changing a vertex's texture alpha rather than vertex position.

    Also go here if you haven't already.

    Edit: Misunderstood question.

    Blend textures only "blend" when used on displacements.
