What's the trick with the ship illuminations in HW:C? Ships in HW are illuminated by the map lightning, the ships I put ingame are either just dark without dynamic illumination, or very bright when I turn self illumination on?
Any help?

Cat is really no different than HW as far as self illumination goes. its all in the mesh. What are you trying to do garm?

something you also might want to consider..

in HWSE on the material properties, you may want to check the 3 red green and blue number values. example.. if you want a full brightly illuminated texture you would click the self illumination. then in the red green and blue box's you would enter a value of 255 for each. that is the maximum value you can enter, it shows as pure white in the box.

To darken it, simply lower each R-G-B number values equally say maybe to 200 per box. the lower the number the darker the illumination. Hope this helps

Here's what I mean, the CS is illuminated by the background and the gunship is just dark!

Its your Diffuse, and Ambient settings, (in your textures) its too dark. Try these setting in HWSE for diffuse, ambient, and specular. D=255 A=25 S=60 keep the emissive setting at zero.

hmmm, now is a good time for someone to write a HWSE tutorial.
