I'm new to blender and I'm trying to make some custom content for TS4.

I'm using blender 2.7 and I've run into an issue where I've got 200+ meshes for the individual hair strands, ~20 different materials and textures, and I need to merge them all into one object.

I've tried joining all of my meshes, and the textures got mixed up.

Is it possible to merge everything without ruining the textures? I'm lost on where to go from here; any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually this problem happens when your two objects have multiple UV maps assigned to them. Make sure you only have one UV map for any objects you're combining.

  • $\begingroup$ I know I'm late to respond, but another possible cause could be different material order and count per object. You could be getting materials mixed up and reassigned when object data is being joined. Materials are queued up for render based on index. $\endgroup$
