Trying to paint Windscreen wipers

#1 Post by KINGPINN » 27 Sep 2020 09:12

Hello fellow truckers and modders,

I have been trying to get the windsreen wipers to appear painted in game.

The problem I am exeriencing is that when using a skin that has a metalic setting, no matter where I have the UV map, the windscreen wipers always appear the first colour in the metailic colour picker. I have placed the UV over the area where I have masked in the skin texture and it still comes out the base colour as mentioned above. I'm using the 'truckpaint' shader, as with everything else I have ever changed to truck paint, which always works as desired, but with this I am stumped.

I've tried using the 'airbrush' option in the material, but in the game it just appears whatever colour is the base colour in the material setting, not the skin colour.

Before I did this, I changed the mirrors to be painted using the same method I use previously, and didn't have this issue at all.

Is there something I am missing? Any help would be much appreciated.

Windshield wipers can not use the trucpaint shader, thus they are not skinnable.

Quite a few parts in the game have such a limitation, so it's not strictly related to animated models.
Whether it's something that can be changed/updated by SCS - I'm not sure.

Ah I see, thats a shame, hopefully SCS allow these to be items to be painted in the not too distant future.

It would be a good idea for the windscreen wipers to be painted.

From what I have found, you can paint them, but just not the metalic paint jobs work with masks.
