3D Brightness GUI test: Neon signs!

Yesterday I saw the 3D brightness GUI announcement and decided to do what I wanted to do.

How could I improve it to become even more realistic (if there is any way)?

Maybe a little bit of reflectance, though I don’t see any major problems

You can’t really make objects reflect on other surfaces in vanilla Roblox.

Yeah, I made the metal bit a PBR map with a #ffffff metalness map and a #000000 roughness so it’s already as reflective as possible. Unfortunate that EnvMaps suck. I probably should’ve put a scenery too.

Such a welcome addition.

I think I said earlier that I previously used glass and neon to achieve this. It used to be difficult to get right though, and you would always be slightly off real life.
