Aircraft Reflections?

Post by DeanClay » 19 Apr 2008, 17:21

Hey Guys,

Just wondering here, is there some sort of option you need for Aircraft Reflections?
I have reflections turned on in my Display Settings in FS, but it doesnt really make a difference. However, i look at alot of people shots to see a nice reflection effect on the Fuselage of the Aircraft, which is definatley missing from mine. Am i missing some setting or anything?

Thanks

Yeah, it is the Environment Map you needed to change. The one I use is from Real Environment Pro, although some planes look a little too shiny.

Now that is shinny!

Real Environment Pro's environment map is really nice.
