Hello
LM has finally updated the SDK for P3D v4.5
http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/modeling/3ds_max/modeling/modeling_pbrmaterials.html
we got now documentations about the textures format @stevo and @Pyscen that's for you ;)
and PBR has been improved: https://www.prepar3d.com/news/2019/...v795yQAkb53qDGt1uX9gBYpFVVM7g1lubpilPXlB7RXOU

@arno new documentation for MCX if you want to make a small update :) : http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/LearningCenter.php

i'm so excited that i even want to get back to scenery development :D

for all LUA scripters: now you got textures scripting available for scenery objects too ( what they said in the changelog)

have a nice day everyone and enjoy P3D v4.5 B)

Hello Arno...

There were the added Bitmap Properties added (not sure if you have added them or not).

Again, not sure this is new or not... but I do not recall it from v4.4.

Now if LM would only publish in PDF for Docx format. I too am very excited about PBR and the scripting options ... speaking of which, rather than just swapping a texture with a given condition, has anyone tried slowly evolving the textures over time and if so, performance ok? and results believable?

P.S. - don't use FS9 textures ;)

I cant find new information on this link http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/modeling/3ds_max/modeling/modeling_pbrmaterials.html nothing changed since the v4.4 documentation.
Quote LM. Added various PBR material templates and updated model template documentation, where is this documentation ? I found this new PBR section http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/references/variables/material_variables.html

best regards

Yes, I cannot find anything different from v4.4 either, 'Added various PBR material templates and updated model template documentation'. is in as a new feature??.

Where it said 'various PBR material templates' I sort of hoped that they had added a drop down list of various PBR materials to the Prepar3dPBR material within 3dsmax.........so you could select steel, plastic, glass, etc and it would automatically set the correct settings.....

???
