Forest pack breaks groups?
« on: June 06, 2015, 09:37:20 PM »
Hi

Couldnt find anything on this topic.

When i import a tree object that is a grouped model of a tree and it's leaves and then scatter it with Forest pack i get weird results. Forest pack acts like it is breaking my groups apart and scatters each individual object. The result is leaves by themself and alot of naked trees while some other objects are correct.

How do i work around this so that it scatters the complete object?

Hi, for objects which must handled as an unique entity (as trees), you must attach all elements in an unique mesh.

Forest supports groups, but only to distribute sets of objects that usually are scattered together (as clumps of flowers). You can see an example here. In this case, each item of the group is handled as an independent element.
