most needed change in FPP:
« on: April 02, 2010, 03:08:27 PM »
When calculating  the placement of forest obejects inside a shape - the contour of the object should be taken in acount and not the pivot point so that when I draw a shape  - I dont have to go and move vertices so that the  plants dont go out of a fence (for example)

This is very annoying

I agree. The problem is that placement calculations are done before to know size of the items (since the object type and random sizes are processed in a next stage). The scattering algorithm is much faster working this way.

However, we will think how to fix this issue for next versions.

Until then, you can move the borders the radius of an instance back...if the random scalerange is not too big of course !
