copying texture clipart

Postby redwood » Tue Jun 26, 2018 12:50 am

I'm sure this is simple and I'm just missing something but.

How do I make copies of the texture area tiles, such as the scallops or wave models? I can copy and paste them or use a array, but there seems to be a ridge where the tiles join. Visually they match up perfectly.

There's an invisible border around the edges of components so you need a small negative gap to make them overlap.

Actually the biggest issue turned out to be the clip art textures imported using a add combine mode, rather then merge.

Clipart always imports with a combine mode of Add as far as I'm aware. Seems like a sensible default rather than an issue as there's no chance of a piece being lost behind another which could really confuse someone new to the software.
