    Hello everyone!

    I've decited to make my own preset, i followed the tutorial here and now i'm confused because i followed every step right.

    Code:
    material littleamadeus_sol
    {
       receive_shadows on
       technique
       {
         pass
         {
           ambient 0.95 0.95 0.95 1
           diffuse 0.6 0.6 0.6 1
           specular 0.1 0.1 0.1 1
    
           texture_unit
           {
             texture littleamadeus_sol.png
           }
         }
       }
    }
    this is what my .material looks like.
    when i want to check the preset in game my Charakter is always white.
    so the texture isn't the problem.

    What did i do wrong?
    Thanks for the help!

    With love
    LilAmadeus

    can you please provide a screenshot of the files in your preset folder, I would like to see what you named your textures.

    Hmm, coding looks like it checks out.

    Question though, is the file containing the coding still a .material file?
    It might've somehow got turned into a .notepad++ file instead when you saved it.

    It is still a .material file.
    I've deleted it yesterday completly and made a totally new one, still my charakter welcomes me with a pure white skin.

    I'd double check for typos, and make sure the textures didn't get corrupted.

    does your computer have file extensions shown? is it definitely saved as
    littleamadeus_sol.material and not just
    littleamadeus_sol with no extension?

    Canines do not have mane UVs at this time, though thankfully felines and horses do.
    However there are no tuft UVs period so you are out of luck there.

    There is a Tuft3 and Canine Leg Tufts UV but other than that I'm not 100% sure where the others are to be located.
