I just downloaded the asset for the Hyena Bomber (I plan on replacing General Grievous' Starfighter with it). It's an incredible mod. But I want the sensors (eyes) to glow like the Vulture droid's sensors do. How can I accomplish this?

It glows because it is directly in the model.
But you can probably achieve that with a glow map:

1) Copy the texture, you want to add a glow map to
2) Rename the copy just by adding _glowmap at the end, exemple:
cis_fly_hyena_bomber.tga become cis_fly_hyena_bomber_glowmap.tga
3) Open cis_fly_hyena_bomber_glowmap.tga in photoshop, GIMP or any picture editing program
4) Create a new layer
5) Fill the new layer with black
6) Layer opacity to 75% to see the texture under the layer
7) Create a selection for the part you want to add glow to it, here the sensors
8) Fill it with red (if you want red glow)
9) Layer opacity back to 100%
10) Save as tga

I created the glowmap following your instructions.

When I tested it after munging there was no glow effect. Does this only work on custom maps? (I replaced the Droid Bomber with the Hyena Bomber on the stock side. I don't know if that makes any difference or not)

I think it needs hex editing.

Do you know any tutorials for that? (What is hex editing exactly, model editing?)

I believe glow might have something todo with edit flags.

It has to do with modeling and the pandemic addon.
Best way: you could ask Kinetosimpetus to make the hyena bomber's sensors glow for you? He is on the forum here.

Huh, I didn't notice that the Vulture's eyes glowed. I'll update the Hyena when I have time.

Thanks Smile That'd be great!

(Would It be possible for you to include the weapons you used in the video? I'm having a hard time replicating that)

I won't release the weapons as they are part of my main mod, and are specific to its style. The blaster cannons in the video were also the wrong ones, too powerful.
