You're probably looking at the "world" tab. You want the "material" tab. Add a material if you haven't already.

I've updated the script to skip over bones with "Deform" unchecked. This is so you can do more advanced rigs without exporting unnecessary bones. The version number for the updated script is 0.5.

I just noticed that you have to be in eevee render mode to get those metallic etc options, if you are in cycles you only get to choose the color!
It was like this for me at least.

Good point! I updated the first post to reflect that.

I find it to be really easy to get the spec/roughness settings really overpowered so at least for me i found a max of like 0.3-0.4 and everything over that is just making the bike explode in reflections, would there be a possible way to maybe make the sliders not as touchy so maybe 1 is a lower value and the 0-1 range is more detailed?

Why not just use a spec map?

Actually, I had a bug in the spec settings in the script. I just uploaded an update. It's the same url. Should show up as version 0.6 if you have the updated version installed.

You still use the spec map its just that the "spec" settings is how much the spec from ps will reflect ingame in the new export script, you cant just make it and export it anymore with the new engine so you have to set reflection and spec settings in blender.

It does work a little better but you still need to keep the exponent/roughness slider under the 0.5 mark for it not to act like a lightsource cus the reflections get so bright. right now i found that the specular settings works good but the roughness needs to be like 0.2-0.35 depending on the material for it not to shine like crazy!

Turn down specular to make it less bright. Use roughness to adjust how focused it is.
