Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here could help me with getting a great metal effect primarly for 3d models for games. I've tried countless websites but I can't find any tutorials that really nail what im looking for. I want something that looks really real. Any tips or tricks? Thanks in advance guys, Braun

Ontopic: Good-Tutorials is an excellent site, which is where i learned practically everything. Dafont.com is great for fonts, and google "Photoshop Brushes" for neat brushes based on what you want (Grunge, tech, space, etc.)

For most skins, to get a metal effect you need to use shaders. Shaders enable skins to reflect in-game light and react like metal would. You can't make a base texture for a game and have it look like metal ingame without shaders. At best, doing that would result in a metal-esque grey skin.

They're made in notepad or specail prgorams made for creating shader docs. It works using game-specific coding, usually in an HTML-like layout. Tell me the game you want to skin for and i\I'll try to give you some more specific stuff.

I looked around for some good tutorials, but couldn't find any. Since I'm not familiar with BF, this might be more at home here in the Battlefield: Modding and Editing forums.
