Pipeline Set (RW Section)

|RenderWare Stream Section|
A Pipeline Set is one of Rockstar's custom sections. It is used by the Renderware engine to select a rendering pipeline that takes responsibility for drawing a atomic.
The section only consists of an 4-byte integer which can have one of three different values. This value will determine which of the engine's rendering pipeline to use for an atomic.
0x53F20098– Render pipeline used for buildings with reflective materials.
0x53F2009A– Render pipeline used for vehicles.
0x53F2009C– Render pipeline used for night vertex colors.
For example if the data is 0x53F2009A a specular material can be added to a non-vehicle object. Primarily this is used for vehicle upgrade parts and some cutscene objects. Vehicles are using this rendering pipeline by default and do not need a pipeline set. It is not possible to add specular or reflective materials to a player, pedestrian or other 'skinned' models.
