Is there a web page or resource somewhere that gives more verbose 
descriptions of all the different material properties in glass.inc?

Thanks.

The colours at the top with a filter component are for pigments.

Next, you have a number of colours WITHOUT filter. Those are to be used 
in the interior block as fade_colour with fade_power 1001 or fade_power 1.
The names looks explicit for me.

The various interiors all need tweaking of the fade_distance and the 
addition of a fade_colour unless you want the colour to fade to black.
I don't recommend I_Glass1 as the fade_power is highly unrealistic. You 
should use fade_power 1 or fade_power 1001.

It would be nice if that link was in the top of the file.
