I started updating the CEV-Orion, as the current developments show quite a different service module (SM) and RCS thruster concept. Although it is 'just' a different SM it requires modifying all thrusters, repositioning the command module (because the mass-center has changed), new skirt to the Ares 1 launcher, etc.
I am trying to use simple materials (without textures) for smaller metal parts, like RCS nozzles, but I am not quite happy with them. They look more or less like shiny plastic, not metal.
Could someone please give me some tips on good settings for metal material (color, specular level, glossiness)? I am using Gmax, but material settings should be the same, regardless of the modelling program.
