This time, my ALPHA troubles are not caused by my restless thick fingers: now Randow Choice (or Karma)
elected me for disaster. Maybe my previous ALPHA CHANNEL TROUBLE
post acted as a Lightning Rod for derelict ALPHAS on the loose to strike me!!
I downloaded a variant of the North American T-6 Texan South African Air Force T-6 Texan
here at Simviation & it behaves as a tricky Texan should, I like it. I added 2 more textures of the Spanish Air Force, installed & opened my FS 2004 Silver Wings for test flights:
My Time of the Day choice being DUSK, ( forgot to compensate the hour difference between Mexico & Britain)
...the poor thing is phantasmagorical & translucent!! So I checked the other 3 Texans textures in this pack:
ALL translucent, like model kits made of cheap plastic... EXCEPT THE LAST ONE: FAB ELO. PLUS this phenomenom does not happen in Daytime hours ("only" at Dawn, at Night & at Dusk)
Since FAB ELO has the ALPHA channel as a white square...I changed the ALPHA channel as a white square in 463+31: now translucency & reflections ARE GONE:
So ALPHA mods have DiRE consecuences!! And I did a lot of configuring there... Fearing the worst ( I boobooed my FS2004 AGAiN!!)
I checked my aircraft with more shine over Bare Aluminum (darker Alphas
Beech Staggerwing USAAF
Beech model 18 USAAF:
Gee Bee model Z:
My breath has come back before having an atack, menos mal. I tryed Reflections vs NO Reflections
, in aircraft CFG I found a model Option- normal & No-refl
-TO NO AVAiL: only replacing ALPHA channels with a White Square WORKS!! Now, I installed this Texan Pack in my FS 2004 Golden Wings
SAME THiNG... Of all my aircraft, this only happens with South African Air Force T-6 Texan
in BOTH SiMS.
HOW CAN I MODIFY THiS CONDiTiON, retaining reflections??
