  • $\begingroup$ Hello :). No complex node setup is needed. Just create a different UV map for each Normal map. $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jul 27 at 8:34
  • $\begingroup$ Hi I appreciate the help! :) However I am afraid I still don't understand what to do, I am sorry :( Could you put it into layman's terms by chance? :) $\endgroup$ – UV Bakes and Beyond Jul 27 at 8:50

You'll need to do three things :).

1. Create a separate UV map for each texture (3 in total).
Only faces you put inside UV bounds will be used. Faces outside bounds will be ignored.

enter image description here

2. Connect a different UV map to each texture (use the UV Map node).
Set textures to Clip, so they don't repeat.

3. Combine the textures using Mix RGB nodes set to Add, fac=1.
And plug the result into a Normal Map node.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks again I am stuck for sure, I am not sure how to assign different uv maps for different sections for one object that is only using one material. $\endgroup$ – UV Bakes and Beyond Jul 27 at 10:13

    $\begingroup$ In regards to the first image you showed me, I don't know how to save different uv maps separate on one object, so I am unable to get to the node part. Thanks so much for the help again. $\endgroup$ – UV Bakes and Beyond Jul 27 at 10:23

    $\begingroup$ Thanks appreciate all the help :) I already have normal maps baked for each section I just need to be able to apply them individually in sections as one material, that is why I posted this, just wanted to make sure there were no misunderstandings :) $\endgroup$ – UV Bakes and Beyond Jul 27 at 11:25
