    GIFs/CSS code in HTML work (see the onboard navigator, or the ETK dash computer). Animated GIFs as textures don't.

    It's not exactly a GIF texture, but you can have dynamic materials mapped to a vehicle's body:

    Proof of concept

    I setup a material that was similar to the etk800 nav screen. When I applied that material to the walls of the camper, It turned into a giant screen. I’m working on a way to loop a custom gif as a texture. I'll probably create a tutorial when I'm done.
