    Hello...

    Where is the texture placed in regards to the imported file and have you placed it in the proper slot within MCX...

    You imported to SU? or exported it? If you imported to SU... then you do understand that SU can't read DXT3 files right?

    Leave the file you import into SU as a regular 24 bit BMP file. Use the DXT3 file only within FS.

    you can add a textured polygon on top, but take care of the flickering, those polygon tend to flicker, you should separate it from the Wall enough

    Hello...

    The best option is to layer it on top of the metal texture within your photo editor,... otherwise flickering can occur along with additional vertices count.
