Just as a note, Blender's FBX implementation does not rely on the official
SDK. It is an independent implementation written in Python, as the SDK's
EULA was considered problematic with the GPL license. After many years of
work, it performs quite well, but isn't perfect.

Closing this issue, but not before I pass some information.

Hours of testing later, with the help of Leighton Majoran (thanks so much
Leighton), we know this

a) the oar loads fine including the mesh vulcano + cave in version 0.8.2.1
b) the oar does not load the mesh vulcano in version 0.9r (the reason is
beyond my knowledge)

Last note. Now that I know what the red lines mean (thanks Melanie Tielker
f?r answering) I think the mesh pieces travelled to my grid with missing
assets, either not transfered thorugh the hypergrid, or had before missing
assets. And nothing I should worry in the future as I assume I will be
often getting HG items with broken assets.
