Hello all. I've been trying to import my F-5a into the game and have some problems. If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it:)

 

 

I'd exported earlier versions of my mesh with no hassles, but have since come up with problems (I wish I'd known that the maximum polys per mesh was between 4k and 5K, - exporter crashes!!

I happened upon a post by Brain32 identifying the problem and I've since had to do a lot of cutting .. problem solved however, and the mesh exports ok; it's once I've exported that I have some problem's in game.

 

The most serious is that my mesh is a dark transparrent color (see pic). the material I'm using is standard with opacity 100 and diffuse, specular and bump maps added. Even when I load without textures, the mesh is still this dark grey

translucent color .. any ideas?

you need to at least uvunwrap the model<i think you have not assigned a bmp or jpeg to the mesh?...just using a material in 3ds max wont suffice,I suggest you uvunwrap the whole model to a small jpeg just one colour then re export and try that.

Hello RussoUK, sorry for not being specific enough but the model is fully uvunwrapped and I've exported with the textures. Here's what's in the out file. Does this look right?
