I wasn’t too happy with how the effects of full bright clashed with shiny objects. I wanted the top part of my lamp to be very shiny except where the glass was located. For that part, I wanted it to be full bright, glowing, and emitting light. With regular 3D games, an object can have several textures assigned to take care of reflection, bump mapping, shiny parts, glowing parts, transparency, and more. In Second Life, transparency voids shiny effects and shiny kills full-bright. To get around this, I had to create an extra prim for a total of 4 prims in my street lights. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll get around to the actual texturing.
