Transparent material properties

Summary

This page documents glass shaders and their properties.

To turn on material transparency, the EnableMask property must be set to True!

Glass

Cyberpunk's glass material, such as base\materials\glass_onesided.mt

All glass materials can consider the vertex color attribute, which you can edit directly in Blender.

Opacity

float, 0.0 - 1.0: Controls glass transparency.

GlassTint

A texture to tint your glass. (TBD: Does it work as a mask?)

TintColor

Glass tint as RGB (copy from e.g. mi_neokitsch_fridge_z_emissive.mi).

IOR

Index of refraction as float, 1.0-2.0: The refraction properties of your material.

Refraction Depth

float 0.0-10.0: Control refraction amount here.

FresnelBias

float, 0.0 - 2.0: How much does the glass behave like a lens (that is, warp the picture behind it)?

BlurRadius

float, 0.0 - 1.0: Blur amount when looking through the glass

VertexColorTint

float, 0.0 - 1.0: Transparency of vertex colour tint

Find a ready-to-use bottle glass .mi here.

Non-warping glass

For a glass material without view distortion and warping, use base\vehicles\common\materials\glass_windshield_tinted_black.mi

Opacity/OpacityBackFace

float, 0.0 - 5.0: Controls glass transparency. OpacityBackFace will only affect inside-facing normals.

FrontFacesReflectionPower / BackFacesReflectionPower

float, 0.0-10.0: How strongly should the glass reflect?

TintColor/TintSurface

Surface and refraction color as RGB (copy from e.g. mi_neokitsch_fridge_z_emissive.mi).

Half-transparent glass

base\environment\decoration\electronics\devices\device_neokitsch\textures\device_neokitsch_glass_black.mi

Device screen glass

base\fx\shaders\parallaxscreen.mt

ParalaxTexture

Texture that your screen should display, e.g. base\materials\placeholder\black.xbm

true

TintColor

RGB

colours the material

the material's transparency will be determined by the mask texture

NormalStrength

2.74905014

MaskTexture

texture (black/white)

black parts of the mask will not be affected by this material

Roughness

texture (black/white)

use base\materials\placeholder\white.xbm for maximum roughness

Normal

texture (normal map)

path\to\your\normal_n01.xbm

???

MaskOpacity

0.629999995

0 - 1, controls glass opacity

BlurRadius

0

will blur the things behind the glass
