Inheriting textures
« on: March 25, 2015, 03:27:47 PM »
When I add textured models into a RailClone object, the materials on the RC object aren't there, and I must manually re-apply the textures from the segment. Why is this the case? Creating a new RC object should simply inherit the materials from the objects they are made of.
Kind Regards,
Rich

I'm afraid it's not as simple, because most of times each segment uses its own material. So, there should be necessary to attach all of them in a new MultiSub material.
You can find more technical details regarding this issue here.
