    Ice Simulation on Wings

    Solution I see so many people jumped so fast at this one....:D Easy to guess, not many people have attempted this simulation. I found a way to make ice on wings to appear and disappear, tricking it with a tigger action in 3ds max, using the Spoiler trigger. In3 3ds max, I duplicated just...

    Prop0 blurred visibility

    Also, to test if this was an issue with my texture on my disk, I actually deleted my disk completely just for a proof of concept. The black line is still there, which tells me the answer lives in the SDK.
