How to make things shiney!!!1

Sometimes you'll see cc boasting super-powers like "envCube shine". Wanna have some for yours, too? Here is how one does it:

1. Find your Material Definition resource (aka TXMT) within the package file you're working with, and select it.

2. In the Plugin View, under the Properties tab, you'll see a list of properties, like so:


3. Now, change the following properties:
reflectivity1
stdMatEnvCubeMode    reflection
stdMatEnvCubeCoef0.3,0.3,0.3 (or any decimal value below 1)

4. Below the Name and Value inputs, there is a link: add. Click on it, and a blank property will be added to your list.

5. Scroll to the bottom of the list, and select this newly created property. It will appear just as a single colon (:).

6. With this blank property selected, enter stdMatEnvCubeTextureName into the Name: input box.

7. For the Value: input, choose one of the following:
reflectionbronze-envcube
reflectionbronzenonlit-envcube

reflectionsilver-envcube
reflectionsilvernonlit-envcube

reflectiongold-envcube
reflectiongoldnonlit-envcube
reflectiondarkgold-envcube

reflectionsparking-envcube*
reflectionkitchenhighcontrast-envcube


* This one is my personal favorite. You'll need to experiment and check in-game to see what each value looks like.

8. To the right of the property list, click on the link sort List.

9. Click on the Commit button-- a prompt will appear saying "Changes were committed". Click OK.

10. Save. And now you're finished! Huzzah!

Now, go forth and Midas-touch everything you make. Wewtz.

Great Adele, but what's up if we just want to make the shoes shiny? Like you do? :D

The shoe will need to be separate from the body-- a subset mesh. Then, do all this shiney-tmxt work to the mat defs of the shoe subset.
