    I recently started making my own maps for AC thanks to the wonderfull "BUILD YOUR FIRST TRACK" tutorial found on this website. Everything is really going smoothly inside of Blender because I am a 3D artist, but sometimes, when Importing tracks to KsEditor I get black non-textured meshes with a material name of "FBX_MATERIAL" and no Diffuse texture attached. Even if I put all my textures into a single texture folder where the map is. the worst part is that even when I click on "..." to add my own texture it still shows as dark. Hopefully I was clear enough and someone can help me out!

    Assign texture.
    Give some values >0 (e.g. 0.4) to ambient & diffuse.

    Don't forget to save persistence.

    Thank you for replying! I tried doing all of those things but nothing changed. I noticed that it happens when using a particle system inside of Blender. but Since I have your attention, is there a way to add only Specular map and Diffuse to a material without the normal map/detail map?

    "a particle system inside of Blender"
    Only export meshes/empties from blender, everything else is useless anyway.

    The "FBX material" error happens when some object has no material assigned. (right pic no good)

    I just gave up on that, I needed something to be flexible when I want to edit the trajectory for the road for example. But thanks for the info.
