Is it possible to have parts of an texture be additive and other parts not, On the same texture?

Sorta - ya gotta overlap a masked texture on top of the additive one.

Some examples:

The masked mesh sometimes has to be scaled *slightly* larger than the additive one. If the polygons match perfectly, the renderer may favor the additive layer, but sometimes you can get away with duplicating the mesh in a text editor and layering them directly on top of one another, if they are both low poly. As you can see in the last example, you can even tack a chrome effect onto the additive layer.

It doesn't render right in some versions of Windows and graphic drivers though - and has the same oddities you get with additive textures with some combinations of Windows and drivers, such as vanishing when set against another special render texture, like so.

Ask Phlame the Ever Burning about his anime fetish. (I'm serious, go ask him).

(Though remember to use the NPC speech channel.)
