I've done some experimenting and I found that it might have something to do with the $selfillum and $selfillummask. About 70% of the materials loaded this time. The ones that didn't load either had a fucked up name or had an issue with the $selfillummask. Here's an example of the logs:

[2017.06.20-17.55.07:758][354]LogMaterial: Missing cached shader map for material HammUErBaseMaterial, compiling. 
[2017.06.20-17.55.07:758][354]LogMaterial:Warning: Failed to compile Material Instance /Game/SourceStuff/Materials/BUILDINGSET057A_mat.BUILDINGSET057A_mat with Base HammUErBaseMaterial for platform PCD3D_SM5, Default Material will be used in game.
[2017.06.20-17.55.07:758][354]LogMaterial:Warning: (Node TextureSampleParameter2D) $selfillummask> Requires Texture2D

I looked through the logs myself and found the error messages related to building the master materials list. This comes up for pretty much every material it finds:

  1. [2017.06.19-22.36.45:617][ 14]LogMaterial:Warning:  (Node TextureSampleParameter2D) Param2D> Requires Texture2D
  2. [2017.06.19-22.36.45:717][ 15]LogMaterial: Missing cached shader map for material BaseMaterial, compiling.
  3. [2017.06.19-22.36.45:718][ 15]LogMaterial:Warning: Failed to compile Material Instance /Game/SourceStuff/Materials/metal/metaltruss024a_mat.metaltruss024a_mat with Base BaseMaterial for platform PCD3D_SM5, Default Material will be used in game.

This happened with the sample base material provided in the sample materials zip as well.

Currently, I'm running on version 4.16. I tried with 4.15 as well but the problem still occurred.

I tried and that didn't work. Everything is still 'None'. I do have my project saved to a different drive, not my C:\ drive. I do not know if that would cause anything, though, as my entire Epic Games installation is on my D:\ drive.

(D:\Users\<username>\Documents\Unreal Projects\gm_bigcity\Config)

All of my materials are in one directory (uncreatively named 'SourceStuff') in my project. I tried to separate them in a different project but I still ran into this issue.

I'm having a bit of an issue with textures. No matter how many times I rebuild the material list, almost all of the materials show up as 'None' when importing maps. I can manually add them, but larger maps with 200+ textures would take way too long. Anyone have a fix for this?
