moeptier, you could try masking out the emissive with a height map, leaving the higher areas to pick up the spec highlights that give the impression of depth. nice looking asset though.
Keg and Wetterschneider, thanks for the feedback on my moped a couple pages back, I've taken this into account. it's not perfect but I'm going to have to leave this one for now.
Any crits would still be appreciated for future reference
