    Hi mates,
    im having some troubles with my 2nd uv channel...
    it seems like it made some faces as dots when packing it... i didnt noticed it and created lod2 and lod1 out of lod3
    after i finsihed everything and wanted to render lightmap on lod1 i noticed this issue
    so my question now is how can i fix it for ALL lods? without redoing the other lods of course..
    is this even possible?

    the problem is, that the original 2nd uv channel is not able to display a nice nightlight and ambient occlusion
    i can change (correct the dot-mapped-faces of) the 2nd uv channel of each lod by hand, but the problem is that they wont meet each other exaclty in their positioning and the result would look wrong... or i would have to ignore tech-specs and render a own map for each lod.. or do 1st uv channel nightlights^^

    Well re- doing distinct 2nUV maps for each lod does work and wont crash the game and is probably the quicker fix solution

    ok, will do that if the solution monty just told me wont work properly :)
    i corrected 2nd uv channel on lod 1 and copied + detached the concered faces
    then deleted those faces on lod 2 & 3 and attached the copied ones
    hope that will work :D

    will see when nightlights are done, but ambient occlusion looks fine so far (y)
    but im procastinating and started the gate-model since im not good in placing them^^
