    Everytime I edit a normal map using the DDS Plug-In for Gimp 2.10.18 and export it into the game,
    My console is just saying this and my game isn't loading my normal map:

    I used the same settings to export a color map and that worked.
    What am I doing wrong?

    I've had the same problem before, for me manually changing the type of image compression in the exporter menu fixed it.
    For normal maps you should use BC5/ATI2 compression type.

    Gimp doesn't support the correct dds settings for normal maps to work properly.

    Paint.net with these setting will export with no problems ingame
