Can't get the exhaust to have a " chrome " effect, like the original sidepod bars for bodykits


What does your .shd file look like?


http://prntscr.com/51052q

And the contents of that file are
{     
map = chrome.tga
shininess = 10
}
reflection
{
    factormin = 0.3
    factormax = 0.9
    factorexp = 0.8
}


Snappe

All the bodywork parts should share the same texture. That way they can all share the same shd file. You can call the tga whatever you want!

As for the shd... The texture you apply to the exhaust (for example, exhaust.tga) would need an shd file called exhaust.shd.
Your chrome.tga needs an alpha channel that defines the specular level (otherwise it defaults to 100% specular).
And it should be:
specular
{
map = chrome.tga
shininess = 10
}

The reflection part looks fine, so it should work.

Snappe

Also your shadow model needs to be completely white.

...so if I called the bodywork snappe.tga.....it would show up on the top wing??

Snappe

If you applied snappe.tga to the top wing, then yes  ???

Cory_Hayes

I just attempted to skin the kart...again.....and I saved the wing part of the template as wing(.tga)  and packed it, still nothing changed the skin....

Snappe

I'm afraid I have no idea what you are doing wrong.
If you can see the texture on the model before export, you will see it on the exported model.
Providing your tga is a power of 2 (256x256, 512x512, 1024x1024 etc.)

Cory_Hayes

Just to clear things up...
The skin in the photos ( Apex Designs on it) Is what I have had done, and put as the base paint, and I am trying to get extra skins to work..like .pnt files.... we are clear on that, yes?
