I looked at the Rigid body file on Blender and amazed to see real textures in the 3D work space. File here http://download.blender.org/demo/test/PhysicsAnimationBakingDemo.blend
Potatoe [Texture] mode has never done much for me besides darken the scene. Shaded mode only reveals textures if there are a sizeable amount of faces. I’ve tried having a look at the materials in the above file, but darned if I can find them. Pressume they’re baked in. Even tried to append the material to another file, but comes up as empty.
If someone can make this clearer, please do. If someone has tips to seeing textures really, please, please, cause this is bugging me bad
