Because ... Stargate  ;D

Still puzzling out the materials file format, so it's looking a bit ... waxy ... right now.  Also, model not mine (Model licensed for Educational purposes, Fan art, Game mods, Machinima)

lol seriously.

I haven't been able to make heads nor tails of why it's so glossy in appearance.  I've tried setting f0 : 0.0 and roughness : 0.8, but I'm still getting the gloss (it appears that it's just the sky reflecting off it).

maybe the normal and roughness textures too intensive ?

This is what I'm guessing, but I haven't had time to look at them yet.  I just took the original textures and converted them over to DDS last evening, but haven't taken a hard look at them.  At this point, that's all that's really left though, unless I'm just missing something in the MTL file.

I've been away from Outerra for 2 years+, and except for a little playing around last week, this is the first time I've tried to really sit down and look at the importer.

I wish there was a quick texture refresh key binding, so I wouldn't have to keep closing/reloading Outerra :)

Was definitely the roughness texture itself.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction:

Was just gonna hop in and say to change every
instance of:

"f0" : "0.0",
"roughness" : "0.8",

to this:

"f0" : ".028",
"roughness" : "1.0",

And you will enjoy the results.

Yup!

Now, if we can just get some rudimentary Particle FX added ....



Can't wait to explore the importer a bit more.  This has been fun :)

Stargate's may not be the worst idea for traveling in this vast universe. But my money is still on blimps.

Well, they have a great intensity range, but good to mimic multiple materials at one UV.

I'm used to specular maps being white is bright; Outerra seems to be inverted.  I can adjust to it, but it was what was confusing me.

Eventually I'd like to clean up the model's UVs, but I've been out of modeling practice for a very long time, and I have other projects that I need to work on for now.  But hopefully I can use some of those projects' models to port to Outerra for fun :).

I have an idea for a character I want to pursue, but I'm going to wait until I can add all the proper animations and hotkeys for him to be fully functional.
