What is a texture face and can I change it or add more?

A bit of info on texture faces for meshes.

A texture face on a mesh is a way to have more than 1 texture aplied to a mess at the same time. For example, if we did a rim for a vehicle with a tire attached we would want to have a different texture for the tire than the actual rim. Same for a bed, we would want a different texture for the frame, than for the actual pillows, blankets, etc.

Using more than 1 texture face allows this to be done, and still give each part of the mesh the best possible texture ability.

Texture faces is something that is determined when the mesh is created, and is not something that you can change once it's in world. Vendor pics will clearly identify how many texture faces a mesh has so that you are aware before purchase.
