    Hello all,

    Im trying to bring some different lights in the BTB, so that there's a bit more variety on the style. However I am having great difficulty.

    I've read the small explanation that was posted on here, but I cant get the buggers to work. I'd greatly appreciate some help from the forum on this.

    I have to admit that this is driving me mad, i've spent probably the best part of 8 hours trying to get the lights to work!!!! Please someone help.

    Once I can create one I'd gladly do some light 'borrowing' to make an Xpack for us all.

    Rock on,
    Steven

    trackside light needs to be in 3 parts. the post, the lamp, and the onmi (the light itself). it quite hard to do.

    the onmi, but has said it quite a task to do without 3dmax.

    Ideally I want to know the Xpacker process for it.

    Using 3dsimed I've borrowed a light I want from a track, it consists of a post, a lamp head and a glow. I just cant see how to get the bugger to work in Xpacker - I can get the object to be there no problem, but it just fails to be a light. Even after setting the glow as a lightglow etc...

    There seems to be some part of the process that im missing.

    Rock on,

    There's a Light and Post in the default XPack. If you unpack the XPack and have a look at the light's settings in XPacker you might see what you need to change in your one to make it work.

    I have unpacked the default one and I cant find what im doing differently.

    I have big plans for how I want to light my track (nice mood colours on some objects) but I've hit a wall as it were.
