Is the gate and the surrounding wall on the same exported file? If it is, and only the wall is rotated when exported, there may be something you are doing within Blender that is causing the issue.

Many months ago, I remember Blender had 2 options to export FBX files.
Text or Binary, or something like that.
One of the options worked better, you can check both options.

As alternative, you can manually rotate the wall part in the Esenthel Mesh Editor.

Hi,
You could try to export to .DAE (Collada) format directly from within blender.
To do that you just have to enable a plugin in blender and select some options to have like "triangulate" and "include UV textures".

You can also convert your .FBX files to .DAE file format before you import them into Esenthel Engine with autodesk FBX converter (free software from autodesk) Good luck smile

The best way is to use FBX, preferrably created in 3ds Max / Maya, I've imported hundreds of 3d models with animations, and 99% works without issues.

The 1% that has problems, I will import first the FBX file to 3ds Max, and then export it to FBX again. After that it works OK.

actually this worked DAE.

Esenthel i think there is a problem importing FBXes from blender3d .

FBX export from blender works. My artist exports animated models from the latest Blender with no issues. You would want to do FBX export especially if you have multiple animations, otherwise with DAE you can only do one animation at a time. I know there are specific export settings, I'd recommend that you inspect these settings and see if anything can cause issues during export.

Thanks for the reply , ill check later why that happened , although i followed a video tutorial exactly , and did it multiple times , plus i tried both binary and ascii FBXes.
