Custom Tree - Centre Offset
« on: December 10, 2011, 10:22:49 PM »
Hi there,

I am having trouble adding custom trees. When I select a multiple plane billboard for my custom tree, the centre offset doesnt seem to work and as a result the tree appears to have multiple trunks at its base. This is despise having adjusted the centre offset in the material library editor. What am I missing/ doing wrong? I have attached an illustration of my problem.

FOr the time being I have had to go with 1-plane billboards.

Thanks very much for your time!

The centre offset works only with the one-plane billboards. This parameter was included to displace the rotation axis (when the trees are looking at the camera), and the shadow planes. It works shifting the full geometry, but not modifying the relative position of each plane.

To use 2-planes bllboards, it's needed to modify the bitmap in Photoshop, placing the trunk centered at the image.
