Hello, in the latest 3DSimed build I have noticed a very annoying problem that I don't know why its happening.

Gonna explain: in 3DSimed viewer the material looks good, but when you export it to rF2 .gmt and try in-game, it misses a side of the material. If you check the box "Double Sided" in the material properties, the problem is fixed.

Why is this happening? It happens with some materials, not all. I don't know why this annoying problem is happening me with some models.

Cheers.

BG,
some models were built that way in early games GPL etc, to save memory.I guess you are just unlucky in that you have found some.

The geometry is facing the wrong way - you can check this with Display->Culling->Back Face. If the geometry should be seen then the faces need reversing.

Ok, thank you Dave. This will help me to see it in the viewer like it will look in the game and have a quick fix in the material settings.
