Can someone advise me on how to add shine to the textures of an aircraft? I am kinda new to painting and I have a texture that in real life is very very shiny on the metal exterior and I'd like to mirror that. Can someone please help me with this?

I have done a few skins for myself and my squad but do not know enough to be able to tell you how to do this. However, for a primer, it has to do with the spec map, env and fresnel .dds files.

Hang in there and someone with more knowledge will give some great pointers. I'm posting here to tag this thread and hoping to learn from this as well. :wink:

Cheers
Roger
