- So I have 3d model where I have empties as parents to objects. Basically I’m working on a car model and the parent is called ARROW_SPEED and it is an empty (plain axes). It is parent to a object called speedarrow which is a 3d mesh. The empty is supposed to tell the game how the object rotates.
So I moved the parent and the object disappeared. Only its origin point is left. There is no 3d model even though in the right side scene window. (Ignore that black box and arrow drawn on the image for this question.)
The model still exists I think. I have tried to move the object to origin, move origin to cursor, alt-h to unhide and checked all kinds of things I could imagine the object stays hidden. Only its origin point is visible and when I press a to select all there is nothing else selected than the origin I think.
I have had objects disappear like this before but I was able to close blender and then reload the old save to get the object back but now I saved and thus I can’t get the object back that way. I could remodel the part but it would be nice to know what is happening just in case something disappears I’ve been working on for days instead of minutes…
- Also what does that lighter highlight around the STEER_LR mean? Is it some kind of selection? When I click other objects that STEER_LR stays with that different background color and the stuff I select has the white text indicating it is selected.
