    I was fiddling around with a BTB project of mine trying to create a commonmaps file, it started producing an error in rFactor "Error loading texture Sky for material SKY" and "Error loading global material SKY". Naturally I put EVERYTHING back to how it was before the error but I still got the same error. I've tried everything! I know its nothing to do with the sky.MAS file because it is perfect, and I can't imagine it being anything to do with the .SCN .TDF .GDB .AIW or .CAM file because I have checked them over and they are perfect, also the error is across the whole track not just each individual layout (of which there are 4). Please help, I am willing to try anything to get it working.

    I now know what the problem is. I didn't realise there was some modding to do in the .SCN file. When you add a [trackname]map.MAS file you have to state it in the .SCN file. The coding should look like this:

    For example - my Cadwell Park mod

    mas file layout.jpg

    For some reason it only works in that order too.

    I hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.
