AI Aircraft highly reflective

Recommended Posts

I've been having a problem with several AI aircraft being very highly reflective. I don't have the time right now to load up FSX, find one, take a screenshot, then upload/post it, but here is a picture from a thread on flightsim.com. The aircraft that I have noticed with this problem (The UTT 787 in the Qatar livery and the AIM CRJ-200 in the American Eagle/Skywest livery) look exactly like the aircraft pictured in that they have this metallic sheen to them: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/attachment.php?attachmentid=132406&d=1345326600%C2'>

 

I have followed the suggestions in the thread using the Qatar UTT 787 livery and have changed the Alpha channel to pure white, but the problem is still there. In fact, I noticed something interesting. Prior to my edits the Alpha was mostly black with white 'cutouts' for the tail. In-sim, the tail did not have a metallic sheen. However, after editing the alpha to be all white, the tail had the sheen along with the rest of the fuselage/wings.

Perhaps the reflectivity is in the model itself?

It isn't, because (I probably should have mentioned this in my OP) other repaints for the 787 and CRJ look just fine. I looked at these working ones, and they have a white alpha layer like I modified the Qatar one to have.
