Material for lampshade

Postby Reinchard » 01.05.2012, 18:50

Hi!
I make a model of night lamp and I make material for lampshade. Now I want to put some light inside and there is a problem. Model of lampshade is 2-sided and when i try reduce opacity, my material disappear. Is this any way to make good looking effect of light inside lampshade?

Just use alpha-channel in your lamp-side texture, man :)

Yes it is, but destroyable windows are not two-sided. They have 6 poly closed shape - at least destroyable windows. Non destroyable one you may create with all your fantasy applied to it what you can only imagine. :)
