This is the code for importing a mesh and the appropriate texture

#exec MESH IMPORT MESH=railgun_pickup ANIVFILE=MODELS\railgun_pickup_a.3d DATAFILE=MODELS\railgun_pickup_d.3d X=0 Y=0 Z=0 unmirror=1 //Importing the model
#exec MESH ORIGIN MESH=railgun_pickup X=0 Y=0 Z=-15 //Setting its position

#exec MESH SEQUENCE MESH=railgun_pickup SEQ=All STARTFRAME=0 NUMFRAMES=30 //Animation sequences

#exec MESHMAP NEW MESHMAP=railgun_pickup MESH=railgun_pickup //Defining name of meshmap (texture mapping coordinates)
#exec MESHMAP SCALE MESHMAP=railgun_pickup X=0.1 Y=0.1 Z=0.2 //Scale the meshmap

#exec TEXTURE IMPORT NAME=RailSkin FILE=textures\RailSkin.pcx GROUP=Skins FLAGS=2 //Import a pcx-file and give it a name
#exec MESHMAP SETTEXTURE MESHMAP=railgun_pickup NUM=1 TEXTURE=RailSkin //Assign the texture to the model using the meshmap

The MODEL/... thing its the MODEl directory from the "root" of your project directory, you might use something else if you want to.
I often use TEXTURES/

This is the way to load a texture from a pcx file.
If you want to load a .utx file you do like this:

#exec OBJ LOAD FILE=..\Textures\SkyCity.utx

For instance.
Then you can ready to use the textures from the utx-file
This is used mostly if you have an external package that isnt opened by deafult when you start a game (most packages...)

Hope that helps
