So I started a project and it mainly revolves around a manhole and a street, and it's raining, but I can't get the manhole to look wet.
One thing I tried was to mix 2 noise textures (one with a low scale and one with a high scale), and mix that with the gloss texture, however that barely changes anything.
The Road has puddles on it, ripples, etc. and practically looks pretty wet, however the manhole looks pretty dry, and I can't seem to figure out what to do to fix it.
I thought about making the ripples (made following Gleb Alexandrov's tutorial) affect the manhole too, however I don't know how to make it in a way that looks realistic, as the manhole has a displacement texture, so adding ripples on it wont really fit.
You can see the material for the manhole below, but the node system is huge, so I color-coded everything.
Dark-Blue: Texture Coordinates, Mapping, and Color Ramps
Bright Red: Mix Shader
Dark Red: Overlay Maps (although I don't think they're having much of an effect, so you can ignore them).
Green: Diffuse Stuff (The two textures are the diffuse and the AO map)
Cyan (sort of): Gloss
