What shader?

The intricacies, or simplicities of 3D modelling are worth understanding. Alongside other forums like Building Rolling Stock, Scenic Item Creation and the other tool specific forums here's another place to ask questions that just don't quite fit the other forums.

These should help get you started.
Although intended for Rail Simulator, the vast majority of the conventions are the same

Hi,

Try TrDiff or TexDiff, either of these will give you a result to start with.

For rendering to texture you had best look at the Tutorials, videos on You Tube, that are available on the net for 3Dsmax.

Kind regards

TrDiff is blender shorthand, the real name is TrainBasicObjectDiffuse. You will want TrainSpecEnvMask or TrainBumpSpecEnvMask for rail vehicles, probably.
My posts are my opinion, and should be read as such.
