I just spent 6 hours making this acceptably smooth.
Paneling like this would usually take about 2 hours for me, but there’s 2 things that made this exceptionally hard.
The first thing is glass doesn’t layer properly when it’s crossing over. It never looks like it’s intersecting. It’s always one block on top of the other, and it’s really trippy to tell where blocks are relative to each other. This is just a bug and I’m gonna do a bug report for it now.
The other thing is the main thing.
Usually when you panel parts, it’s OK to have them cross over slightly because it’s easier to get a smoother look like that. But with glass as it is now, when you have two pains cross over, It basically doubles the reflection strength and tint. So you have to carefully align it so that parts don’t cross over, which takes ages, and the fact that you can’t judge depth basically at all with glass doesn’t help.
Also my teeth are being warn down at an alarming rate with the a,mount of paneling this windshield is gonna take to look good.
So, what would the solution be?
It would be SUPER SUPER helpful if when glass clip inside each other, the texture where the glass is clipping disappears. This would make life SO MUCH easier!
I don’t know how complex doing this would be, but I don’t think it’ll be a small job... but please, it would be fantastic if you could do this!
