I'm getting a dialog popup with 'Unknown system exception' when loading a scene containing a Forest object with manually placed cars.
Any idea why this happens or how to fix this? Below the MaxScript Listener output.

Code: [Select]
Welcome to MAXScript.

Hi,

First let me mention, that's most probably not related to the Forest Pack plug-in at all (please feel free to do a quick test using Forest Tools and export all distributed geometry to instances - this way you can easily check, if the problem is related to Forest object(s) or not).

As far as I know, PhysX (MassFX) might have issues with groups being used in scenes and Ungroup these can help. Anyway, I would encourage you to contact directly Autodesk regarding this problem as I'm afraid we can't do much more in this case. Thanks for your comprehension.

Best regadrs,
