I have submitted a place able silo to modhub for console and it passed everything up to the point of console testing. They sent me a message "The green preview shadow while placing showas only the lights and not the whole model on PS4". Since I have no idea how to test my own mod on a console any help would be greatly appreciated.

what is your mods name?
Eventually I'll find some time to take a closer look at it during this week.

The mod name is ForageNChips. I tried several things I am lost in what to do. For some reason in the green preview while placing the silo the PS4 it is only showing the lights. I am sharing textures for multiple objects that have different material names. Maybe this is causing an issue? I'll try making different texture names per object.
My nickname is the same

I was just reading through the specifications. I have to check, but I'm thinking lighting uses emissive texturing. I'm wondering if this is causing an issue?

This is getting very frustrating. I can not find an answer to the missing preview anywhere. I'm going to remove the lights just to take them out of the equation and submit one more time. It's just becoming a waste of time. I was told the ladders on the silos are dissappearimg at certain viewing angles as well. The silos are the actual in game silos lol.

it seems you've hit/created a very special setup.
I hope you can find a way to fix it - the lights might really be an issue.

You've checked the ClipDistance of the ladders, I guess?

The lights didn't fix the preview issue. Sadly I'm not sure they are even looking at the new model. They said the ladders are still disappearing, this is very odd because I removed the ladders as well? Not sure how ladders can be disappearing when they are not there haha. As far as clip distance, they are on the original farm silo from the game. They are part of one object. Either way i deleted them in blender so they don't exist.
