I''m trying to create a bright cloudy sky. I have the dome with cloud texture, but it''s too dark. How do I light up the sky without affecting other objects?

Is there a way to self-illuminate a texture in D3D? I''m using 3D Studio Max and X-file exporter to create the mesh, but the self-illumination feature in 3DSMax only applies to color materials and not the texture material.

youll have to go down to the data-level, and do it yourself.
just make your vertices have a "ambient-color" or assign a material with a non-null "ambient" color.

Thanks for all your input. I turned up the emissive level and it worked. Kind of sad that I can''t do this during the design-time.
