Hi all I'm fairly new to bringing in 3D custom objects into to FPSC. I've checked up some tutorials which are some what complicated to me.

I've manage to actually get my 3D models into FPSC, but whenever I apply a texture to them, the textures are repeated tiny tiles. The two objects in the middle, are the ones I'm talking about in the screenshot.

I used an hill X file from Green Nature and replaced the texture with my own. I did the same with the ground as well. Those worked out well and im wondering what is it about mine that causes the textures to be so small? I use 3D Studio Max, I haven't gotten into UVW mapping yet.[img]null[/img]

they need the uv coordinates setting up,you need to learn the basics of uvw mapping

thats good news. there are some great tutorials on the accompanying dvd that came with your copy of max.take a look at the one called materials_and_mapping that should teach you all you need to know.

cheers henry

It's a pain to get used to, but it's definitely something you want to tackle sooner rather than later.
