Perhaps the problem is with exporting from blender.
You can try readjusting material textures in blender, or try to set some configuration option for exporting if available.
If not then you can always just apply textures manually in Esenthel editor smile

RE: Import Whole Map
Hi,
Can you please attach some sample data files to import (both source blender files, exported FBX files, textures, in the same folder hierarchy) and I'll investigate when I have a moment.

@Marbasoft: thank you I'm checking this

@jburdick: you can't import a world from an object.
You can import an object.
Then place that object in a world.
The objects can be huge (just keep them as "Terrain" class)

@Marbasoft: it works now. it's available in Source branch.

Binary version will be uploaded in a moment.

@jburdick: once binary version is uploaded, please let me know if that fixes the Blender issue as well.

Thanks
