If you are using EEVEE:

You may need to go into the Render Properties Tab - Performance - **Enable High Quality Normals**

Everything works fine in 2.80 with Eevee with the exception of the small Decals (The ones around gun turrets etc) which are Images as Planes.... therefore contain a Transparent background. If you use EEVEE you will need to set the Blend Mode to ALPHA BLEND in the MATERIALS Tab for the Decals
