Whenever I have problems with normal maps, I take a look at some of these links and the problems go away. They’re all from polycount, and I think it’s awesome that they’re available for free. If you profit from this stuff please consider supporting polycount over at Patreon, even with only a small amount: Polycount Patreon.
