    In the following example from the wiki page;

    singleton Material("sunburst.skin.custom")
    {
    mapTo = "sunburst.skin.custom";
    colorPaletteMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_skin_custom_palette_uv1.dds";
    overlayMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_skin_custom.dds";
    diffuseMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_c.dds";
    specularMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_s.dds";
    normalMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";
    diffuseMap[1] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_d.dds";
    specularMap[1] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_s.dds";
    normalMap[1] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";
    diffuseMap[0] = "vehicles/common/null.dds";
    specularMap[0] = "vehicles/common/null.dds";
    normalMap[0] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";
    specularPower[0] = "128";
    pixelSpecular[0] = "1";
    specularPower[1] = "32";
    pixelSpecular[1] = "1";
    specularPower[2] = "128";
    pixelSpecular[2] = "1";
    diffuseColor[0] = "1 1 1 1";
    diffuseColor[1] = "1 1 1 1";
    diffuseColor[2] = "1 1 1 1";
    useAnisotropic[0] = "1";
    useAnisotropic[1] = "1";
    useAnisotropic[2] = "1";
    castShadows = "1";
    translucent = "1";
    translucentBlendOp = "None";
    alphaTest = "0";
    alphaRef = "0";
    dynamicCubemap = true;
    instanceDiffuse[2] = true;
    materialTag0 = "beamng"; materialTag1 = "vehicle";
    };

    The normalMap is repeated multiple times, as are others.
    normalMap[2] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";
    normalMap[1] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";
    normalMap[0] = "vehicles/sunburst/sunburst_n.dds";

    What is this effect on materials?

    Nothing pretty much.
    The engine only uses the normal map that is in layer [0].
    The rest is useless/not used.

    Thanks for the reply. I removed the duplicates and found no difference.

    is it the same for the specular maps?

    Nope, specular maps will contribute in all layers.
    Also independently whether the layer is visible or cover from another layer.
