Almost all of the model exterior that required AO has been occluded successfully. :D

The problem is that the real model is build from composit material, rather than metallic.
It looks more like the white body of a glider plane.

Here is another build with a bunch of changes…

That's because we're working with per-material constant Ns. The big idea behind material metalness/roughness (that's the PBR way of rendering things) is per-pixel variable Ns that's hardcoded in its own map_Ns.

I'm currently looking into this technique closely and I think I'll soon be able to come up with a shader that can handle PBR models without having to rework/adapt their texture maps first.

In the last build, i think i have removed all the watermarks from the bubble_body/engine texture set, however if you could inspect them closely just to make sure they have been all cleaned up, 4 eyes being better than 2...

That's a very nice-looking "moonlit" rendition of the model. :)

(I can't see any offending watermarks in the texture color/alpha channels.)

Yet the model should be AO mapped. I can't enjoy bare renders now that I have an almost complete set of map_Ka textures. I'm appending them below in the zip for you to use too. You can derive their respective meshes in the MTL file from the texture names.

Note that to be able to see AO, the material needs to go through the normalmap branch of PPL. To this end, the AO-ed materials should have either their own normal map or utilize the neutral_bump.png dummy explicitly. Note also that my current ObjReader renders AO much more vividly than yours because yours uses it predominantly in the ambient material+light component while mine shares it equally between the material+light ambient and diffuse components.

Yes, the rendition must match closely the ambient lighting of the wallpapr being used.

Did you notice the new red light animation, the new rotor rotate effect, the new rotule and legs texturing, and the reworked jet propulsion.

Now i have to figure what to change with the legs to have a real flying version  :-\

Thanks for the new occ textures, they have been added to the material file !

Yes, I've noticed all the mods and I appreciate them, especially the jets and red lights. They are a killer! :)

Professionally, the rotule+legs assy should be rigged with a triped skeleton so that the legs could be posed using rotation gizmos. 8)

But since we aren't seeking the easy ways (hehe), we should obviously split the front legs into two distinct meshes. The back leg should be lifted a little in parallel with the fuselage, and the front legs, rotated backwards on both sides of, and parallel to, the back leg. (see the picture below)

I think this will also need some adjustments to the rotule_ext and rotule_lisere meshes.

I couldn't use the .stl pilot, because it is a scanned model, and the mesh quality is too low  :-\

Don't even try to, because the only pilot that ever flew the Oblivion bubble ship was Tom Cruise in one or another of his clone reincarnations. ;)

Unless we're able to find Tom's textured body or head model let the bubble cockpit remain unmanned.

OMG! :o

This is terrific! Is it just the round platform without the passageway/living cubicle?

Tell you what: I'll send you the shader that renders AO like my ObjReader does, and I would like to try and generate the real AO map for the platform in Blender (when you're done with the model) so that you won't need the pseudo-shadow mesh at all...

Yes, just the single platform for the purpose of self centering of the view port.

And then, no more need to have a pilot within the cockpit ;)

It has two major fixes:

1. It renders AO in both ambient and diffuse channels; and

2. It allows our current "stray light" control to overbrighten normal-mapped materials in the scene up to 100%. So, the former 100% full-bright is now exactly at the control's mid-position, and drawing the thumb fully upwards now yields genuine +100% overbrightness. I am sick and tired of using illegal 2.0 2.0 2.0's in the color channels whenever I need extra brightness/shininess in our materials.
