How to disable "shininess" effect?

Post #1by rl90599 » 15.05.2020, 21:25

Hello, is there a way to disable this shininess effect when I turn up the ambient light level? Also, changing the OpenGL render path will not work since it also changes the ring and eclipse shadows. Anyway, here's a screenshot.

Is there some OpenGL shader that's producing this effect? If so, here's my OpenGL extension list:

I am not sure what you mean by "shininess". Are you talking about the problem where the Sun-facing side of the Earth appears to be "overexposed"?

If so, that is probably because the ambient light affects all sides of the body, which makes one side appear too bright. As a workaround, you could change the SSC code for the Earth to be emissive:

Code: Select all

Modify "Earth" "Sol"
{
   Emissive true
}

Best, LukeCEL
