[fixed] model isn't showing up in game

Recommended Posts

Fix: Don't rename the .ase to something other than the original .map name. Change the .map name instead and then compile

hey, I followed this guide https://jkhub.org/forums/topic/10173-making-ase-models-with-gtkradiant/

the model appears inside of radiant fine, though the textures are incorrect, but I've seen this bug with functioning models so I assumed this was fine.
There are no errors in radiant when I drop the model into the .map, this is the shader:

I'm very confused as to why it doesn't show up in game, there is just nothing there. Below is the model inside of gtk radiant. note the incorrect textures showing up

Where is the "Origin" point of that model? Is it in the center, or at one of the sides? If it is inside the brush behind it, q3map2 will cull the model out during compile, and thus it will be invisible.

 

Edit: As far as the missing textures, if you flush and reload models and then flush and reload shaders, it usually fixes the issue, but that might be outdated info.

The reason for the error was because I had renamed the .ase file after it was compiled. I renamed the .map instead to what I wanted, compiled the new .ase and this fixed the issue.
Apparently, renaming the .ase afterwards to something else other than the .map name can cause issues.
