Main issue. It appears Decals do not work with C4D instances at all. Tried Instance, Render Instance and Multi-Instance. If I just drop a stacked material onto the objects, the grunge shows up in all instances no problem.

I thought, why not try this Corona Proxy object instead of using C4D's Instances. First of all, very clumsy to use. Multiple steps, save each one, blah, blah. Should just work with a click. As you can see in the lower image, not quite the look I was going for. I have read in other old threads, that you need to combine into one mesh and drag materials into those channels. What goes where? I have no clue. Clunky. If you have a bunch of houses or buildings this would take so long.

Anyway, Decals don't work with Instances.
