Hi, thanks for your suggestions:
-I would like to use forest pack to populate lights...it would be a great addition!!.
A common request both for Forest and RailClone, but unfortunately Max handles lights as non-geometric entities, and cannot be generated by a geometric plugin.
In the past we tried several tricks to implement it, but results were not satisfactory.
-Link a model with a block/instance...When one get the landscaping cad file they already use a block per specie so if you have one main FP object with multiple plans associated to specific names of those CAD blocks one could get automatically o the 3d version of the CAD landscaping plan.
This is something we like to include in next versions, with several ways to link objects dinamically with Forest. Basically we want to replace Tree Editor->Creation Tools
, which currently is very limited and doesn't update automatically.
