This is something that i have wanted to know for some time now. When i first created my texture for the Piranha Class, i was less advanced with modding but now that i have improved, i would like to know how to do something.

Now, i am going to show you two pictures of two different textures. One of them is mine, the other is P81's Sovereign texture.

Spoiler: Show

This is P81's texture. As you can see it is very well done, as always, but there is something on the texture that i want to know how to do. There is a pattern of some sort on the texture. How is this done? I thought it may have been done using a brushing technique in photoshop and if so, which brush was used?

Spoiler: Show

As you can quite clearly see, my texture does not have that effect and it kinda spoils the texture.

If you need me to elaborate more, i will do. All help is welcome.

it's just a panel effect on one layer that's been reduced in opacity... the circular "saucer" patern was created with an graphic effect called palar co-ordinates or something similar.
