On models that use 2d transparent faces combined with regular faces the transparent sections must be added last to the final model assembly, otherwise all faces behind the transparent ones will be rendered invisible.

Regarding transparency, I had the same issues on the oil rigs in Black Gold.

Thanks. I never knew this. I came across this with transparent faces on trucks. We were trying to make frames much like those towers from blackgold. We were only having one side of the frame showin up.

I first ran into the problem on Crazy 2002.5

But each time since then that I run into the same situation I can never remember the proper order and end up guessing wrong lol... so hopefully this post note will help for the next time.
