Hi ive got a question about vehicle materials (in 3ds Max). Im using Kam's tools and my problem is, that when i apply a GTA material with the recommended "sa vehicle default" or any other settings to for example a spoiler, the part looks much lighter and somewhat more cartoon-ish than any GTA SA car's paint. Any way to fix that ? I gues it has something to do with grunge, but im not sure so im asking.

 

Example picture:

And also how i can make it reflectable, because in MTA when i use car paint shader cars are reflected but the spoiler isnt..

Simply enable reflection in the material and add an image as for the lighting even though I'm not sure I'd say it could be diffuse/ambient color but if it isn't there's other ways to fix it like applying vertex color or darkening the spoiler texture if there is one.

It uses the default reflection section which is included in SA vehicle default settings in Kam's GTA materials script. It doesnt use any texture, it even cant, because the part has no TXD file so i will probably need an more IN-DEPTH answer from a experienced Max user.

 

Heres picture of the SA vehicle default settings:

BTW i havent ever found a tutorial of setting the materials of car in 3ds Max, thats why im asking right there.

I see that the body has got reflections so try to remake that material and then edit the colour or whatever you want.

Kams script are bad for exporting vehicles, it doesn't export the reflections. I use this script, it works perfectly
