EVE has some really cool spaceship design!
« on: June 09, 2013, 11:19:50 pm »

I always loved the artwork but could never get into the game XD

They sure know how to make giant spaceships though which, as I suspected, look awesome against Outerra's terrain!

Yeah I'm not sure why there is only a single map for each ship in the model pack but I used a program called CrazyBump to make normal and specular maps from the colour map, then spent a while messing about with the matlib and reloading outerra... Still a bit too shiny I think!

Maybe something in the materials, or the object renderer doesn't handle the size well, using wrong atmospheric parameters. Angrypig?

I had the same problem though I'm not entirely sure how I fixed it... I'm finding the material system kind of confusing :(

You could try just copying the material settings I ended up with...

and did you import the model with the bump maps? or added them later manually..

Models I import never have the maps, I always have to edit the matlib file and add the filenames manually.

After importing a model, I quit Outerra, load the new matlib file into notepad, and enter the filenames for the different bitmaps...

yeah i got that, but i end up with over 20 different textures and a crazy big matlib file while your model has them all in one. i don't understand how to map them on different parts of the model and keep them in one DDS
