I tried converting the static mesh to a non solid 2 sided brush and then back to a static mesh and that didn't work. The surface and texture are set to 2 sided.
I experimented with both masked and alpha-blend. Im gonna set it to have double the polygons in 3dsmax for now...
I need to get back to finishing this maple tree at some point too.
Maple tree with the highpoly leaf meshes but lowpoly trunk:
WIP full lowpoly mesh:
Also you may like to know, that masked leafs and such on static meshes are capable of allowing light to pass through on the masked areas, leaving the shadow of the branches/leaves after lighting rebuild >:)
I tried naming the mask two-sided but it didn't seem to workMaterials
The names of the multi/sub materials indicate which rendering modes will be activated for the polygon flags. The following strings fragments, with the familiar Unreal polygon effects, can be anywhere in the material name and can be combined (if the combination makes sense to the engine.)
Recommended: when using multiple textures, always name them skin00, skin01, etc, which will force the 'multiskin' indices to point at the textures in a predictable order.
skinXX - give your materials numbered skin names to ensure they are linked in the right order, whenever you have multiple skins for a single mesh.
twosided - twosided (flags, fins)
weapon (obsolete) See Weapon Bone.
modul - modulated
mask - masked
envir - environment mapped
mirro - environment mapped
nosmo - 'nosmooth', non-bilinear filtered
unlit - unlit
trans - translucent
You still have to create your own 8-bit .pcx or .bmp versions of texture files and manually link them up in the appropriate .uc script files, but you can look at the X_ModelInfo.log output to see exactly which bitmap files go with what material number for your model.
Edit: I fixed it. I couldn't figure out how to do it in max. So I installed the undying t3d tool and exported it to Ued. Then tagged the surfaces and converted that to a static mesh.
I couldn't do it the easy way... Converting the static mesh to a brush and editing that. It bugged out. But importing as a t3d map worked. All I had to do was rescale and rotate the textures. It's working now.
For some reason it wont let me edit properties that way.Either set the flag in the editor (mesh browser-mesh properties-materials) , or use the flag in the texture group name. Something like _TWOSIDED_ or _TS_. I can't remember where I kept my link to the import flags.
edit: wait... i see lol. Thank you.
I was clicking on the mesh itself instead of edit-properties.
