I came to the conclusion that metallic finishes should have zero ambient
through my own experimentation. The metallic textures from the various
includes looked just wrong to me. I started by commenting out the
ambient. I got a massive improvement. Then, I tested with an explicit
zero ambient and got the best, most realistic, result.
When I first posted about it, I was unaware of Clipka's position on that
The metallic finishes from metals.inc have been made to look acceptable
in an empty scene against a black background, and that's the only
situation where they look somewhat correct.
