So if I load some plants it all seems to work fine for a while, then out of the blue any additional plants seem to not take on the new colors or models. And I know its not a particular model because if I restart 3DS Max and pick that same model first it works. I have to delete the entire scene and start over. Sometimes even that doesn't work without a restart of 3DS Max. It sort of like it is not flushing out but instead holding on to a particular texture set or model after too many in the scene.
My PC is only a year old, should be able to handle it. I have 32gb or ram, i7 processor and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070. Vray, 3DS MAX nothing gives me any problems except this software.
