This is what I call a navmesh transplant, for situations where an AImesh just isn't creating the Navmesh that you want for the map. To do this I will strip down the AImesh into the navmesh portion that I wanted and implant it into the main navmesh.

Tools:  BF2editor. 3d Modeling software.  3dsmax 9 is used in this tutorial, but newer versions can be used.  

First of all, for this example I am using the large pillbox object for Battlefield 2142. This is what it looks like in the editor:

ee slime green color is the navmesh. With the building removed, you can see that only the ground floor is navmeshed. The overlapping nature and the steepness of the three stairways in the building are apparently too complicated to the navmesh generator to handle.

Now, lets load up the infantry.obj navmesh into 3ds Max by importing.  I will go ahead and save it as a Max file, and then save it as I go along, saving each one as a seperate version number so I can go back if I need to.   Here is the navmesh I am using.   In this example I did not import the materials, so it's all the same color.
