Shades under the wheels

Post by Mmeister »

Hi,

If I may ask about the shade under the wheels. I just can't get them to be displayed right in the game. Its not entirely Zmodeler work, since theres DDS I edit with Paint.net (maybe I'm doing it wrong idk tbh) but regardless any info/tip as to what's the deal with this would be appreciated.

So with trailer there's sorta working at least in game, but not in configurator menu.

With the truck I can't get it to work at all. Is there some fixed relation between pixels of *.dds file & size of the floor in modeler?
- I've streched the floor, updated the dds file, but in game the dds remains default or just not up to proper scale for some reason...

Again, any tip/info how this works would be appreciated, since I've tried many option, none worked as intended.

ui_shadow and ingame drive use different shadow objects.
for ui you need to add a pmg with the name ui_shadow and add it to the chassis sii

for ingame you have to add the same object to the chassis file and select the shader fakeshadow

Hi,

I've updated the Scania model to fix the collisions and in game weird shadow under the wheels appears? I did similar update today with Volvo FH16 and no such effect happens.

I assume some update caused the change. Any solutions?

Never mind, got wrong mat set as explained above. Mat i used was not a fakeshadow but truckpaint. So changing the mat worked.

After my noob mistakes, any help would be appreciated with what I'm doing wrong.

So I've set my model floor shading for 5 axles but can't get rear axle to display proper shading on the ground. The modded 10x model is based of 8x4 SCS Scania S.

Here are my inputs:

Truck model.
Image

Ui_shadow
Image

Edited *.dds in paint.net
Image

Edited *.sii & *.tobj
Image

I get missing texture in preview/garage.

And some weird shaded box in size of 8x4 chassis.
