I'm not sure if this is a problem with the UV Unwrapping or a problem with my model but I'm getting this weird change in the texture.


The closest I've come to fixing this is UV unwrapping based on the view (Project from view) which makes the face I was looking at perfect but the other side even more distorted. I've tried the "Minimize Strech" feature but that just made it worst, I've also tried adding geometry but that didn't improve it.

The root problem was my lack of knowledge, so if you're a beginner or just happen to make the same stupid mistake as me here is what helped me:

I've known about seams for a while now but haven't really found the point of them, I tried using seams on the model that this thread is about but did the stupid mistake of still using the "Smart UV Project" function instead of the normal UV unwrap. If you're struggling then I recommend watching a bunch of Youtube videos on UV unwrapping.

    $\begingroup$ Avoiding a problem isn't the same as fixing the problem ;) Next time you need to use UVs, you might still face the same issue and not know what's wrong and how to fix it, and you can't just not use UVs all the time. $\endgroup$
