Mesh Planes and Constant Texture "Brightness"

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, question primarily intended for 3ds max users/modelers but feel free to contribute if you have an idea!

 

Assume we have an x-plane with a texture applied (two simple intersecting planes).  The game by default does not render shadowing nor catch shadowing using the plane primitives.  Also, depending on the lighting angle - one side of the plane’s texture may be “bright” while the other plane’s texture is dark.  Is there some way to apply a texture to the planes so that the texture “brightness” remains constant regardless of lighting?

I think what you refer to is actually the gamma settings for 3ds max....it shouldnt affect any model.

I ll post pics in bit as I had the issue


screen capture and actual render....that what you are getting?

      Unlike the previous packs these include runways rescaled and reworked to Thirdwire standard and have the names of the Thirdwire runway textures - so this just replaces the stock ones.
       
      A lot of existing runways use textures to this scaling so they can be used with those also.
       
       
      includes 4 different sets with different runway colours - Covers 5 default runways in SF2 / SF2V / SF2E / SF2I
       
      Just pick a set - the game will use just the one set.

      Hey,
       
      I read somewhere we can turn 3ds max files into something usable in SF2...I got some freeware downloads of some interesting crafts...so now what do/can I do with these?

      So yeah, on the A-37B dragonfly there is a large "whip" type antenna that is straight when the plane is stationary but is bent backwards as the speed increases, I guess I could animate this with vertex animations and assign it to some kind of function (automatic highlift device or?). Any idea on how to set it up? Ideally I want the antenna to animate smoothly from 0 to maximum speed but it would be okay if the antenna bends backwards at some preset speed like 50kts.
       
      Thanks!
