    Hey,
    Every time I save my High Elf Altar model, an animated texture on the energy rays turns into ununimated again and I have no idea how to save it permanently. Model is 100% finished, the only thing that has to be done is mentioned texture. I would be grateful for help :-D.

    Search this section for animated textures-threads. Or was it in the tutorial section? I'm not sure. Anyway, there certainly is somewhere a tutorial/explanation how you have to edit the model in wordpad to save the animated texture. Had the problem too once, but I can't recall what you have to edit exactly.

    Magos detaches the texture anim from material layers.

    Save in MDL. Assign the texture animation in Notepad by replacing the "StaticTextureID _" with "TVertexAnimID _". Save and convert with MDLXConv.
