The bottom of the spike IS wrapped. I intentionally selected a black part of the texture for artistic reasons. It's basicly like a cut-out for the camera.

I understand why you think that is better, but it looks ugly and detracts from the terrain. I think it would look better if it was just wrapped with ice like everything else; the user can clearly tell that it's not just an ice spike floating there, it's obvious that it would be attaching to a roof that the player simply can't see. But the empty blackness just looks ugly.

Obviously it's your model and it's your choice, this is just my opinion.
