You want to create an effect like that for your personal Carskin?
Here is how to do it.
All you need is Photoshop and the "dds-Plugin"
After you installed the Plugin correctly start Photoshop and open any diffuse.dds you'd like to modificate.
1.) Check "Load Mip maps".
2.) That's the Layout you get with Mip maps loaded
I colorized every Mip map in a different color for a better understanding.
3.) Every Mip map is reduzed at half in with and high.
4.) You also can repaint every single alpha channel of each MipMap.
5.) At least you just have to save with All existing MipMaps!
6.) Replace the dds file in your carzip.
As smaller the Mip maps, as more distance is needed for it, to be displayed.
If you start with a 2048x2048 Pixel diffuse.dds, you will have 12 Mipmaps.
2048x2048 >>>> Very short distance
32x32 >>>> far distance
I feel like it doesn't make sense to modificate any Mip map smaller than 32x32 Pixel.
Modifications tested at Dirtfiles, Details and Illum.
Can be done for all DXT5 Level DDS files.
Can also be used in Mods!!!
Easy to understand?
