Can anyone tell me what the "DNAM - Direction Material" records are and what they're used for? I'm specifically interested in the "Max Angle" record and its purpose/use. For example it is used while applying the snow shader to objects and different object have different angle values. I can't seem to find any information on what this record/value actually does though.

So I had to run over to the FO creation kit page to find this:

Directional Material: Applies a material to this object. In Skyrim, this setting was used to quickly create snow-covered variants of normal objects.

    Max Angle: Controls how much of the object is covered in the material. Values must be between 30 and 120 degrees, inclusive.

 

I'm still not sure how angles covert to how much of the material is covered...shouldn't that be percentage? :ermm:
