More reflective surfaces
« on: April 14, 2008, 03:21:22 PM »
I noticed that the surfaces of the shapes you create in ShapeShop are all mat.
Would it be possible to create an option to make the surface of the objects (more) reflective?
This will enhance a more "plastic" look and improve realism.
Also i just love the shiny stuff. ;D

Select view->lighting controls from the menu, and change the lighting from 'diffuse' to 'diffuse+specular', for some shiny plastic goodness.

I have already tried that option. It is an improvement, but the surface itself is still mat and not as reflective as the body of a new car, for example.

I see. Well, I will add it to the list, but at this point I'm not really focused on rendering (you can always export your .obj into a real renderer). So, it won't happen anytime soon =\

Yes you can make the surface of the objects reflective using light control option.

It's an interesting idea.  FSHost does have access to that data from all the players, but currently it's not saving it anywhere.  I'll look into it and see how difficult it would be to add it to the xml.
