Default No wallshadow in-game?
I got the aesthetic part of of how to make proper shadows I believe (it looks okay in Milkshape). But I can't get my new wallshadow to show up in-game. Could anyone look at the file and tell me what I did wrong? Thank you.

If your shadow does not show on the wall, it might be because you placed the shadow mesh too far..the wall eats it. A shadow mesh must be a few clicks away from the surface is has to show on. A bit above the floor, for a ground shadow, and a bit closer to the object/far from the wall...for a wall shadow.

I moved the shadow a bit foward from where the original shadow was placed but it still won't show up. thank you nonetheless.

Sometimes you need to keep moving the shadow mesh a tiny bit at a time and check in game until it's just right. I can't remember - does Bella's shadow show up properly in game? I clone Bella for new meshes quite often and it seems to me that I always need to fiddle with the shadow mesh. But I could be remembering wrong...

For what it's worth, I did take a look at your mesh in SimPE and everything for the shadow looks okay to me.

Were your walls in cutaway mode when you checked the shadow? If so, try it with the walls up.

@mustluvcatz yes I cloned Bella too

Thank you all, I will check in game again (what an embarrassment... perhaps I should try to delete my cache files...)
