is it rigged properly in ZM before you export? if it does, give it a try with different shader, may be the issue is related to ped_hair or ped_hair_spiked shader.

quick question. since you can usually edit face appearance using the mp freemode model in the game, is i possible to do that on a custom ped if using mp head?

secondary UV channel mapping on main square (unwrap) and move it one square to the right (turn "blood") then move charts several squares up for left/right leg, left/right hand, torso, etc. It is advised to import and inspect UV#2 on original ped model to have a record of corresponding "squares" a mapping need to be in.

You are trying to copy weights to an object that is not a geometry. According to orange bounding corner-box lines, this is a group of objects. You should ungroup it to be able to access geometries.

Also, you need to toggle "Rigging" and "MaxBones = 4" on each of group components in "Properties->Mesh->Vertices->Format" before you could copy weights.

one geometry object should not exceed 64K vertices. This is a limitation of ZModeler rendering core, as well as hardware limitation. It is allowed to split object to multiple and group them, so you can bypass this limitation. Another idea would be to split your ped to "head", "upper torso", "lower torso". Original game models are made this way for visual variants/customization, but you can utilize this in-game feature to port a high-detailed model into the game.

Other than that, It is advised to toggle "Optimize vertices" option on import of .obj and .dae files so identical vertices will not get duplicated. It is strongly advised to apply Rigging\Influence\Normalize tool to a rigged object before an export (related to "spike" artifact).
