Need help with making a model hollow. And problem with texture.

I created my solocup, Now I want to know how to make the inside hollow for other objects or players to go inside of the cup.
At the moment the collision model shows a mesh on top of the cup.

Oh and another thing why does my texture show up through brushes?

Please help me. I would be greatful. :smiley:

You need to make the phymodel out of single ‘boxes’ that go around in a circle. In other words, you need to replicate the wanted shape of the phymodel with boxes, can’t just export the reference as phymodel that works like you pictured.

I dont understand. I did what you said but in the compile it keeps saying coverting to single.

As I’ve said in another thread “You need to make the concave piece into a bunch of convex pieces then put different smoothing groups on the parts, then compile with $concave and -fullcollide.”. You should also reduce the density of the collision mesh a little.

Should I use a different program other than milkshape?

I make the model in C4D then import it to Milkshape as a OBJ and then export as SMD’s. Should I use a different program for the Collision?

As long as you can smooth the parts on different groups it will work.
