   * **Rigged Meshes**: Use "​Single Export"​ when you have an animated mesh broken into separate objects (e.g. shirt, head, hair) that are deformed by the same armature (skeleton). Exporting meshes that are deformed by different armatures to one file/entity is not supported by HPL3 and will produce unexpected results.   * **Rigged Meshes**: Use "​Single Export"​ when you have an animated mesh broken into separate objects (e.g. shirt, head, hair) that are deformed by the same armature (skeleton).

-  * **One Texture Set Per Material**: When baking multi-material,​ think of each material as having its own UV set. Faces assigned to Material A cannot overlap in the UV editor with other Material A faces, though it is ok (even recommended) for faces assigned to Material B to use up the full UV space, since it won't matter if a face from Material A overlaps with a face from Material B.+  * **Baking Modes**:

   * **Instancing**:​ Use ''​Alt+D'' ​ to create copies of an object in Blender to place around a map, since they will point to the same "​Mesh"​ datablock. Using Copy/Paste or Shift+D creates a new "​Mesh"​ datablock every time, and therefore a new .dae and .dds file on export, leaving you with multiple repeat numbered .dae and/or .dds files taking unnecessary space on export.   * **Instancing**:​ Use ''​Alt+D'' ​ to create copies of an object in Blender to place around a map, since they will point to the same "​Mesh"​ datablock.

-  * If texture is black or has black parts, make sure UV faces are within the square ​UV boundary. ​Texture ​baking requires that each material use a single ​''​Principled BSDF''  ​node and that all UV faces lie within UV coordinate bounds. +  * Hover your pointer over options for more in-depth info on how to use them 
-  * In the Level Editor, if objects fail to appear after pressing the button to reload static object or entity changes, try exiting out of the editor and reloading your map to make objects appear properly again.+  * When using "​Textures Per Material",​ if texture is black or has black parts, ​\\ make sure objects are UV unwrapped and UV faces are within the UV boundary. ​\\ This mode requires that all UV faces lie within UV image bounds.
