Topic: chrome vs chrome-faceted, and a question about chrome

  1. What is the difference between the chrome texture and the chrome-faceted texture?

  2. I have two platforms that I want to use chrome on. One is a large square and the other is a small square directly adjacent to the large square. When I tried it there was an obvious seam between the two. Is there a way to get rid of this seam?

The only other unfinished level, V, will come after I do all the others. I have a reason for this.

hi chmod 700

i am not that great at the extensionless files for nb textures but here is a little something. today i looked at the extensionless files for textures marble-purple, marble-purple-polished, chrome, and chrome-faceted. i know marble-purple-polished is basically shinier reflective version of marble-purple. in marble-purple-polished there are higher numbers in diffuse, ambient, specular, emissive, and shininess than in marble-purble. also marble-purple-polished has reflective in flags. so this of course means marble-purple-polished is reflective and shiny and i guess i dunno wut else. in chrome and chrome-faceted i donot see any diffs in any categories other than angle. chrome has angle 45 and chrome-faceted has angle 0. so chrome-faceted must not be a shinier reflective version of chrome. from my nottooknowledgible brain on nb textures: so maybe i guess either chrome or chrome-faceted is a version where the squares that catch light on the texture are rotated 45 deg.

for information on extesionless files for nb textures you can see this

looking forward to your lvls nb can always use more lvls wink. as noticed on this thread new lvls are one thing that really help stir up posts on the nb forum

    So still I want to know how to make that patch of ground look smooth. Neither surface will move relative to the other.

Re: chrome vs chrome-faceted, and a question about chrome

you will probably have to ask someone else if you want one edge to be chrome and the other chrome-faceted. i am not that good at the extensionless files for nb textures and i hardly know the diff between chrome and chrome-faceted. an easy solution i can think of is adding extra trim brushes with the other chrome texture to one of the platforms. this way when the platforms touch they will have same texture

Re: chrome vs chrome-faceted, and a question about chrome

The only difference between chrome and chrome-faceted is the "angle" value in the material file.

"angle" controls whether two adjacent surfaces of the same material appear smooth or have  a hard transition between them. This is used to hide the hard edges between the faces of a curve and make it appear smoother.

Sometimes you don't want a smooth transition. "-faceted"  versions of certain materials change the "angle" value to disable any smoothing.
