material refresh
1) I import object, it makes material, assign textures, etc...OK
2) I put model to the world, I can for example change specular strength without any problem, it changes in the world instantly
3) Then I decide, to add normal and bump map. I do it, but no change, until I resave the mesh in model editor (model editor reacts on the change instantly).

Bug? Is there some better way how to refresh it in in the world?

RE: material refresh
Perhaps the model vertices only have a tanget and bitangent set when a normal maps is applied. In which case, the model would need to be resaved... or perhaps I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Yes, it's mostly due to lack of vertex tagents/binormals, which are not generated if they are not needed (to save space).

Thanks. Good to know.
