Mesh behavior
show user profile  topofsteel
This is the kind of question i'm reluctant to ask, but it's extremely difficult to search for. I create terrains by conforming a plane down to linked file of a surface. That becomes my master hi-res mesh. I clone it, optimize it and export it as the design evolves.

For whatever reason, the conformed plane/mesh is behaving oddly. Only the wireframe is taking on the color of the layer, in shaded mode the surface is white. When I edit the polygon sub-objects, only the border highlights red when selected in shaded mode, not the entire polygon. When I clone it, the controller options are grayed out. The resulting copies are not visible and the names are italicized in the 'select from scene' dialog.

What have I done and how can I fit it? Thanks.

Press F2 to see highlighted faces (more obvious when you're in wireframe mode).
