Bodygroups overlapping?

Alright so I ported a snow globe from Fallout New Vegas and instead of having like 5 separate models I just made all the snow globes bodygroups. There is one issue though, it appears each bodygroup when selected will be merged with the first group, I’m trying to figure out how to prevent this but I can’t seem to



$cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\3dsMax8\meshes\snowglobe"
$modelname "Fallout New Vegas\Snowglobe.mdl"
$model "Globe" "snowglobe_Ref.smd"
$bodygroup Snowglobe
	studio "mormon.smd"
	studio "goodsprings.smd"
	studio "charleston.smd"
	studio "Dam.smd"
	studio "Nellis.smd"
	studio "Test_Site.smd"
	studio "Strip.smd"
$cdmaterials "models\Jason278\Fallout New Vegas"
$hboxset "default"
$hbox 0 "static_prop" -5.202  -3.482  -0.681  5.780  7.683  0.622
$surfaceprop "plastic"
$illumposition 0.289 2.101 -0.029
$sequence idle "snowglobe_ref.smd" loop fps 15.00
$collisionmodel "snowglobe_Ref.smd" {

	$mass 1.0
	$inertia 1.00
	$damping 0.00
	$rotdamping 0.00

Have the reference be an empty model?

I assume the snowglobe_ref has the mormom parts in it.

Stupid me, that was causing it


I think you can actually dispense with $model (you should be using $body anyway) entirely and just have the $bodygroup.
