    @el_t_us aww, thats a shame. It seems the low resolution texture is the hidden deeper in the files... How did you manage to make the game use your own texture btw?

    Edit: I'm running out of new ideas to test, so i went back to hunting fireflies... There is a nice reddit post with all known locations which adds up to 63 fireflies! (https://www.reddit.com/r/assassinscreed/comments/k9hfbf/the_most_comprehensive_guide_on_valhalla_fireflies/) ( However I cant find any connection between fireflies and norse mythology. Only thing that comes to mind is the "Will o the Wisp"...

    @shovelator I modded it. Basically the same as other mods for this game. I downloaded a re-skin for the Raven shield and used it as a template. Took a good minute to understand what was going on.
    In Blacksmith (England files), there are textures called
    ObjectAtlas...MainGridFakeEntity_(some number)_LOD1_Diffuse_Map...
    and
    ObjectAtlas...LongRangeGridFakeEntity_(some number)_LOD1_Diffuse_Map...
    Most of them I open are just rock and terrain textures. But there are around 4,000 files for each. I went through pretty much all other TextureMap and CompiledMip files except these. It may be hidden in there. If I can find the base rune texture then we are in business.

    So while I didn't solve this mystery, I found some info on the missing Codex Entries.

    The missing faction is a file called "Rotinonhsion_Iroquonians". Probably referring to the Natives in Vinland.


    The missing location is a file called "Seven_Repton".

    I´m just ingame on the picture 2 position 🙂

    undefined

    There is on a small island the warrior who quit fighting and singing now, writing poems and so on.
    On this place, you also killed one member of the order (Name I do not know now, have to check in my order chapter, but I´m too lazy now)

    @duskdragon56496 Maybe blocking or parrying near the rune. It mentions playing tricks with one's eyes. It's a long shot I know, but at least we can rule it out.

    @the3wsuk no problem. they are using mainly younger futhark, which makes it even harder to find the right words ... then u have bindrunes and more ...

    btw the last 2 words are:
    bjarg þogal : rock/mountain/cliff silent

    @el_t_us So we are not only searching all runes ingame, but also external. They are masterpieces in disguise 😉

    @el_t_us So i went against my own rules and got into modding 😄 Did you modify both DiffuseMap_TopMip_0 and DiffuseMap_TopMip_1 files?

    @enno906

    For my part, I just focus on searching ingame.... That awakens the discoverer in me.
    Odin is with us or should I say: "This is the way....."

    i was visiting the "stonehenge" in vinland ... i was going down to the river. there was the leader of the village ... the game told me to fish. after fishing 3 times a bear appears close to me, which u have to follow and kill ... the leader will go to u and u can speak again to her. now, she is standing there ...

    idk, it was just unexpected and weird ...

    @shovelator Yes both. I never seen 1 load, only 0. I also changed Normal and Mask0 files too, just to see. Idk what Mask0 does, but Normal adds a layer to Diffuse.

    @tchester1980 The discoverer in me will search all the way, even trick the developers with hacking game files 🙂 I played through the game and I want to know the secrets. And for me it is very exiting to see those diffuse and normal maps, because I like playing around with 3d blender also 😉 Win/win for me.

    @el_t_us a normal map is for cheating geometry to a texture. You can simply fake structure on a material, so that it looks like 3d.

    @enno906 ah makes sense, because that's what it was doing. I just made it fully transparent so no texture at all. What does Mask0 do?

  • eL_T_US

    @shovelator To save you some trouble..

    Diffuse 0/1: 1024x1024/512x512 BC3, OffsetHex=45, DataFileOffsetHex=80
    Normal 0/1: 1024x1024/512x512 BC7, OffsetHex=44, DataFileOffsetHex=94
    Mask 0/1: 1024x1024/512x512 BC1, OffsetHex=43, DataFileOffsetHex=80

    At least that's what I came up with. Also you don't have to load the game to test, just close Blacksmith and delete the temp files, load Forger2, then open Blacksmith back up and it will load the modded files.
