Black terrain after conversion to .vsb

Terrain in Vega PrimeAfter my last big visual database delivery on a tight deadline, I thought I had Terra Vista terrain generation mastered:  simply convert the OpenFlight to .vsb and make sure to specify the path to your vt_sub.rgb texture.

Then this time around, my texture came out black.  What now?  Turns out I had gotten used to using the -ct flag for the to_vsb.exe command when converting my culture layers.  -ct compresses the texture maps to .dds format.  Make sure to leave that off when converting the terrain layer that is textured with a virtual texture!
