After seeing the latest Star Wars I could not resist experimenting with spaceship textures.

The ship is rendered by layer 2 and uses 3 textures: a colourmap, a normalmap and a cubemap. All 3 textures are beautifully combined and rendered by the AdvancedMaterials\ColourmapNormalmapCubemap effect.

Select layer 2 and choose MEDIA > Change effect... for the details. Remove and replace textures to find out what each texture does.

The colourmap and normalmap are created with Filter Forge:

And the cubemap is the default cubemap that comes with the installer.

Have fun and may the force be with you!
