recently, i happened upon a tutorial (i believe on itoosoft) that seemed to show that a forest object can contain another forest object as it's objects! i tried it a couple of times and it seems like it works.
i created 5 blades of grass as edit poly's, then i created a small diameter circle, created a forest object on that circle, then clicked custom objects and added all 5 blades of grass. then, i created another forest object on a surface, custom object and picked forest object #1.
any edits i make to the first, smallelr forest objects seem to be reflected in the larger one. for example if i increase/decrease the radius of the small circle.
is this "ok" practice? or has it always been the case and i just never thought of it ha!
