Reflective bmp

Recommended Posts

Could one of you fine folks tell me what is the bmp that does the reflective textures on aircraft. Somewhere I picked up one that is way too reflective and I'm trying to tone it down a bit. I still want some reflection but I don't need to shave in fuselage or anything.Thanks in advance.

Hi,Download and install DXTBmp from the MW Graphics site. Choose Prefs/Select Editor to point to your favorite paint program.Load the BMP file into DXTBmp, and choose Alpha/Send to Editor. Edit this trans.bmp file, making the gray areas lighter (less reflective). Save the file and quit your paint program. Back in DXTBmp choose Alpha/Refresh Alpha. Save the BMP file. Repeat as necesary.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

That sounds like a per plane answer. Is there a global texture or setting that increases or decreases the effect? Thanks again

Found what I was looking for. The file is envmap.bmp. Replaced the one in my texture folder with the original from the cd and it corrected my issue.Thanks for responding though, Tom
