So i added the frogfoot to 1.87 everything seems fine exept that the unit is invisible i can move it around n drop bombs n missles but the unit is invisible. I added it from the 1.8 version. It had three textures and w3d each so input them in there please let me know what i have might missed.. in worldbuilder i get these errors but there for bomb which drops fine.. please please help

Invisible units means the game can't find the unit model.

Make sure the models and textures are placed in the correct directory (Art\W3D, and Art\Textures respectively), and that the model names are correctly defined in the object codes.

How do you save your mode files, do you use folders, or do you edit the .big files?

Missing objects and error parsing are due to coding errors, you either did something wrong, or your files are not being read properly.

Do not edit big files directly. Extract the files you need and save them in the correct folders. That will ensure your files are being read by the game properly.

If editing with Notepad doesn't work for you, try Notepad++, but there shouldn't be any reason why editing outside a big file wouldn't work.
