In Photoshop, I cant see this line. But I tryed to select that region anyways and delete it, yet the artefact is still present.

So this is not something wrong in my file, but its something off in the engine I guess.. And it happens on more files than just this one.. whole melee is messed up like this. And I get these lines in the paperdoll replacements as well..

Here is the source file.

I'm not sure, but it looks like alpha on the top row is being sampled from the bottom row (possibly due to bilinear filtering). Note how the horizontal grey line matches the width of the bottom row of pixels of the glove.

Setting texture wrap mode to "clamp" in import settings might get rid of it. And it shouldn't appear in-game at all with point filtering enabled. If that doesn't help, TheLacus might be able to throw some other ideas into the ring. He's far more knowledgeable around the mod system than myself. :)

Wow good eye!

I changed the wrap mode to clamp as suggested and it solved the issue.
Very easy and effective solution :geek:

This is fixed for both mods and loose files by #1354. I used mirror wrapmode which allows to mirror textures for left handed weapons.
If you are interested in creating mods for Daggerfall Unity you can find the documentation here.
