You can give your materials a certain texture to them, for example, make them appear like concrete or wood. You do this by applying a bump map in the Detail box - see below: 

1. Assign a surface type, eg concrete to get rid of the ASSIGN SURFACE TYPE! warning.

2. Assign a Detail bump map from the folder: textures/detail_bumpmaps. eg metal_ddn.dds:


3. Under Shader Generation Params tick Detail bump mapping

4. Under Shader Params play around with the following settings:

Detail bump scale: (how bumpy the surface will be)
Detail tiling U and V: (the scale the texture will be mapped. A setting of 100 will make the texture tile smaller than a setting of 1. I usually go for around 10, however if you've used the Sketchup default white material, you may need to use around .05

  1. What is performance capture, exactly? Players need to think about is
    an understanding of the differences between a gay man dressing in women's clothing for entertainment and exercising my cognitive realm. Not how you feel or play, but adding in the human nerve to the video game's soundtrack.
