Feature request
« on: October 07, 2014, 10:19:41 AM »
Having spoken to you at the SOA#5 I am logging my feature request with you!

I would like the option to be able to scale each object individually within Forest Pro. Presently we are only able to globally scale all the meshes, or add random scaling which again is globally.

Sometimes a we use meshes that are scaled incorrectly (some XFROG plants) and when this happens we have to edit that mesh to get it to the correct scale. This can be time consuming when we are doing complicated planted areas.

The option to scale each meshes x,y,z values locked together, or perhaps even individually would be awesome!

Many thanks

Andy.
Cheers,

Hi, first of all thanks for your suggestions !

In the current version it's possible to modify the scale of each model, turning off Geometry->Use Objects Dimensions and modifying Width/Height values.
Anyway, since this procedure was designed initially for billboards, we have modified it in Forest 4.3, adding a local Scale value specific for Custom Objects.

We have plans to release the first beta of v.4.3 in the next weeks.

Forest 4.3 beta is already available. But remember you can get the same result in v.4.2.5 turning off Geometry->Use Objects Dimensions and modifying Width/Height values.
