Ok, so I just got FO3 and decided to try and port something I have been wanting for a while. There was already a Mirelurk model so I just needed the NukaLurk textures ported. I ported the textures so as of now I have 3 NukaLurk textures in my pictures folder. mirelurknuka-cola.dds, mirelurknuka-cola_g.dds, and mirelurknuka-cola_n.dds. When the DDS files are opened in Gimp they look transparent, like this
So, how do I get it to look like a solid material so I can port over to Gmod with VTFedit?
