On a related note, this image is special. I added an extra light to the map scene that comes from the planet itself. It's a very faint blue haze that's a reflection off the planet's atmosphere, just as it would be in real life.

Can i motorboat those ships? Pllzzz, Let me at 'em! I got these CHEESEE BURGERS MAAN! Anything for those ships! Mostly because i hope i can atleast look at the ships up close in combat, for some reason i cant look at hermes class i belive they are called (cruiser) when it starts pew pewing the baddies. Scrolling out and framerate is acting like a charm but scrolling in on any cruiser (frigate) except for paris it lags like (yepp).

There hasn't been a lot of work coming my way. As I started redoing the UNSC specular and gloss maps to be more interesting, I noticed the Covenant were pretty lackluster so I decided to touch them up as well.

I removed the hex pattern since it was barely visible and instead opted for a more diverse specular map. The gloss map has also been adjusted to display more of a difference between the dark armored parts and the elegant blue parts. The armor parts have little to no gloss so they take more direct light while the main body has a moderate gloss pass so light is more dissolved across the surface to give it a polished shine.
