So hey there.
I saw a few Valve Textures that have a Bump map and Normal map textures.
What are them?
What are they used for?
Should I Generate them in my Textures?
Any help would be really Appreciated.

    Normal maps are used to create reflective illusions that will either add detail or to correct smoothing errors.
