It would be really help that in addition to being able to change textures with setObjectTexture we also would be able to set the material for hidden selections. This would allow a number of interesting things to be done in the game.
Therefore I would like to request that a command such as setObjectMaterial be added to the engine with the same parameter setup as setObjectTexture.

Adding transparencies to existing models is the main thing. Currently if you try to add a transparent CO texture to a model the other maps (SMDI, Normal, etc) show up as black in the transparent area with their details still showing.
For example I am working on a massive wounding system, where there is the possibility of losing limbs and I need to be able to make parts of extremities transparent to facilitate that. I can set a transparent CO texture for those parts but the detail maps still show up, but as matteblack.

Being able to set custom RVMAT for those hidden selections would make it work.
