    Stalin needs some help with a project or 3 ish

    I currently have some aircraft models that I am repainting, and would like too change the amount of shine. In the past I have used the old shiny util, but alas I have lost (RIP) my old XP laptop. A satin finish helps my old eyes check out details easier.


    Akemi Mizoguchi's CFS2 Aichi E13A1 Recon Seaplane.

    Thicko's CFS2 Nakajima B5N2 Type 97 Model 12.

    Simtech's fs9 P-39D/P-400 models.

    If anyone is able too help please let me know. I can provide links too the files required.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    I think you still have my email address, send 'em over and what shine on each you need and I'll do them.

    OR....

    The prog you need is here http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...tid=49&id=2243, it is MkMDLC.

    Very easy to use, with help built in. Basically all you need to do is to select the variables of shine amount and power, run the mdl through it and voila. You can do it as many times as you want, fly/check and adjust if needed.

    Cheers

    Shessi

    There is also Mdlmat.exe with a tutorial by Obio.

    Do you know whether this will work on a 64-bits system? Like Steve I used Ivan Hsu's little program, but this doesn't work under a 64-bits operating system.

    If your W7 rig has W7pro, you can run Shiny (Ivan's old Shine with a Windows interface) in Virtual XP.

    It's one of extremely few XP programs that run in Virtual XP like MS claimed they all would.

    Shiny is in the library here. Search for "Shiny" in the FS9 Other section and it will come right up.

    You can set the level of specular gloss to your choice of Full Gloss, Semi-Gloss, Semi-Matte and Dead Flat. (You can also make the model reflective if you wish, though that will ruin the VC in some models.)

    MDLmat works OK on my 64 bit system

    For MDLC work (including shining), I use Allens handy DOSmdlc2.0. It operates under DOSbox, so works just fine in a 64 bit environment. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforum...9&linkid=25224
    (set up for converting for CFS2, but no reason why the other bits won't work just the same).
