Presets made of more than one forest object
« on: September 14, 2013, 07:41:00 PM »
Hi!

Check the attached image please. The grass is made of 3 separate forest objects.
I realized that i can not save this as single Forest Preset.
Is it possible to have such option in the next release?
Thanks!

I'm sorry, but there are certain technical limitations to include this functionality. It's not possible to create multiple Forest objects from the Library. We only can assign properties to the object that is being edited/created.

Hmmm... Too bad...
I have to find different way how to create complex grass...
BTW i wanted to ask long time ago:

What about having option to assign different distribution map and different distribution parameters
to individual geometry within Forest object?

You can do it using multiple areas and setting "Override Dist.Map". Not all parameters are available, but it's possible to define a custom map, adjust Threshold and Scale. To define the plants for each area, turn on "Select models".
