Post A problem with materials
At the moment im making a scene. Its my first one and ive spend alot of time making it, however.... I keep getting errors about trying to use a material that isnt in use or something along those lines. It comes up as material #183 but when I searched the scenes.ini I couldnt find what was causing it. Any ideas?

I take it you are trying to use a custom mat.

Is the material defined prior to being used?

It helps to actually make a material if you want to use it...

Not unless you try to put two mats on teh same index.

I really really have no idea how to confuse a scene into loading a non-existant material...

this happened to my bloodguard mod aswell but I set the index number to 10000 or something and it worked. Maybe I can do the same. But how do I add a custom index number to the mat?

It's not exactly difficult, Data posted it himself, a number between 0 and 255 that is not already in use.

right, where abouts do I put this in the scenes code?

Code:
AddMaterial = Material
   Index = 4
   InstanceName = BunkerConcrete
   Bounce = 0.6
   Friction = 0.9
   StructuralIntegrity = 100
   DensityKGPerVolumeL = 2.3
   GibImpulseLimitPerVolumeL = 20
   GibWoundLimitPerVolumeL = 0.2
   Priority = 6
   Color = Color
      R = 165
      G = 165
      B = 165

1.) That index is taken.

2.) That color is taken.

3.) Before you try to load it into anything...
