Im trying to use custom decals on my map. I know how to add them but they aren't saving. When I reload my map all my decals are gone and get get an error message saying it it can't find thier location.

Is there a way for my decals to stop disappearing when I reload or save?

are you saving them (importing them) into your map file? if not.. do that, then they will be saved along with your map :)

you basically have to do this with all external assets outside of the AAPG assets, that you may want to use (meshes, sounds etc.. ) within your map, becuase if you dont import them.. when you publish it nobody else will have them assets in their AA file structure, so whatever it was you used wouldn't be present to them in the map, they would/could only be seen by yourself.

you have to find your map in the content browser and then right click it and a list of options will come up. choose import, then import what you want into the map file.


until such a time we can upload and share custom packages, along with our maps.. this is about the only way i know to do it. however it must be said that the downside to this is that maps can get pretty big, pretty fast when your using a lot of custom stuff.

you should be fine importing decals though, they aint the biggest of things :)

yep, its a bit of a pain importing things like this, but its all we have for now. perhaps you can create your own decal package and import it, that may save you some time.

glad to help :mrgreen:
