Specular texture items with Toribash Next
Specular maps would allow artists to define a material or texture a lot more. A specular map decides what part of the object that should shine whenever a light is pointed towards it. Could be useful for robot sets, sets with small details made out of a shiny material, shiny eyes or glossy lips etc. It will definately be possible with the new engine.

Discuss.

No, like bumpmap textures but specular map, applied on the tori.

it is a bit to vague and oriented to certain types of textures.

Not really, it would open for a hell of a lot of possibilites for artists. This combined with bumpmaps in the new engine would make the sets a lot more attractive than ever before. Bumpmaps are pretty much useless atm since the current engine doesn't handle them correctly iirc but Unity already supports bumpmaps and specular so it wouldn't be much work.

I totally back this. That'd add a great bit more level of detail for all textures.

This is something we have been missing and needing for a while. That and 256, 512 bumpmaps as well as bumpmap joints. I hope it is implemented.

This would be incredible, a specular map can do insane things.

Supported, this would be probably the single best texturing upgrade that could be implemented into TB Next. Bump/normal maps look nice and all, but nothing beats a good specular map effect.

Great example you've provided!
