    I apologize for my English. I'm from Russia and more than a year playing this game.
    Then decided to do modding. A question for the professionals of the case, how to make a reflection in the windows, or mirrored glass?
    I saw many experienced in this business people are able to do so. Maybe there is a link where it is painted, it is all to do. Or do you share a secret? )))

    Sincerely yours beginner Russian moderator.

    P.S. Incidentally created his first house, who may be interested, of course vygljadet bad (even very bad). But still all ahead.
    The building is located in the Industry - Offices T3 - without a photo.

    simply add a black/white map to your material in 3ds max (white = reflecting).

    you need to create (a "specular" (which adds glossiness) and ) a "reflection" map (wich adds the "mirror"-effect)
    monty created a great guide about that, but i dont know if its already migrated on this new site

    reflection map looks like
    h_low01_nyc01_t3_rf_lj0jod.png

    the brighter the color is, the more intensive is the "mirror" look

    and the specular like

    Yes, but when eyeing the windows, there are recorded at home, but not out of the game, and some others. How's that?

    Is there somewhere on the internet a guide on creating such a reflection? I was looking for 8 hours, and did not find.

    if you are talking about ingame reflections - thats not possible because the engine doesnt support it

    Overall I understood about how to do. I will try to do.
    I talked about the houses or skyscrapers reflection in the windows of buildings. If you look at some of the buildings, you can see them. No it is not a reflection of the houses from the game. I wrote about this
