I am editing the 231tela.mdl file in Max to lay new textures out and delete parts of the area I don't want. I have re-textured everything left with TEL_snw.tga. Since then I have been following Disbeliever's Lightmaps for Dummies tutorial
to create new lightmaps for the new area. I get to the render, and it renders successfully(the lightmaps are made). But when the render is done, the texture I applied to the model(TEL_snw.tga) is de-applied, I guess. I know snow is white, but there is no texture.
Now, I thought that it wouldn't matter, but when I export the model, I get an error:
--Unknown property: "diffuseMap" in TEL_snw
And the .mdl exported has nothing in it. I thought to fix this I could reapply the texture and then export again. I don't get an error in Max, so I continue into KAurora. No problems importing or exporting the model.
But, I open up the model file in the hex editor and there is no reference to use the lightmaps inside the file. A part of me just knows that something isn't right.
