Does anyone have information as to where to get this mod or might have done it?

I found this old thread from 2010 where it seems this first appeared, but unfortunately there wasn't much said about it at the time:

If you can find the OP maybe they could tell you something about it.

IIRC from my time as a BETA tester,  this was something that was introduced in BETA, don't think it made it into the game. They also played with Depth of Field, another setting that never made into the game.

You know what, from what I remember this was a cool effect, that had little effect on FPS.

 

Shame it didn't get implemented   :(

The OP for that beta test thread was ROSS_DiFiS - perhaps he/she knows something about it, if you can find them.

Perhaps one of the Devs or Han is the best person to speak to, as it was implemented in a Beta build of the game rather than a Mod.

certainly looks great, wonder if Neoqeb himself might know, especially since it was around just after the dawn of RoF.

In BOS / BOM they have the "wet look" (which I hate). A tweak of the Alpha channel seems to get rid of it.

 

Could the opposite work in ROF? I haven't had time to mess with it, but I suspect that the glossy look is in the game code and the Alpha might not do it.

It's certainly possible to tweak the alpha channel to play around with reflectivity, though I've never tried to get quite that much reflection and I'm not sure if it's possible to do that via the alpha channel tweaking.

Did you try it, in BoS / BoM ?

Thank you

So I see. The templates are most likely the same ones we have in English else where. I have no idea what "hromantic" is.

They are the same

 

I think he means Chromatic.

Every skin has an Alpha layer.

Using a certain shade in the alpha produces a reflective effect.

 

Check out the Jasta 9 D3 from the community skin pack. That has a chrome effect cowl using the alpha to define the effect.

 

I have been playing with the alpha in some skins to get the same effect.

Messed with the alpha a bit but it's not doing the gloss paint look (this is an extreme change obviously... but the wings were lightened considerably... more than other areas, which now are invisible, but the wings seem to have very little change. Any ideas?

OMG, it looks fantastic.

Thank you so much, ROS_DiFiS. 

Excellent job. I will try to have it as the default skin for SopPup

Could you please do the same for Nieuport 28C1 ?? It's my favorite aircraft.

Silver / metal would be awesome, as well.

Thank you, again.

This is really easy for you to do by following the info above - here's a quick and dirty mock-up I did with my personal N17 skin.  I didn't spend any real time on it, but all you need to do is "paint" any portion of the alpha channel that you want to be this reflective with gray (160,160,160) as noted above, and leave alone any parts (like markings, tires, etc.) that you don't want to be that reflective:
