Polished metal skins

Postby vgbaron » Thu Apr 05, 2018 12:39 pm

Anyone know of any photoshop or other tutorials on applying polished metal textures. Looking for the "chrome" effect as on a some P-51's.

This would be for P3D v4

Hi Vic,

it is a texture option in the model development tool like GMAX. In GMAX for example, you just need to uncheck in the Material Editor under the subsection "Enhanced Parameters" the option
"No Base Material Specular". Now your model part which has been assigned to this texture looks polished.
Hope this helps.
