Yesterday I also bought the Laubwerk plugin.
Same thing is happening with their trees: Selecting the same tree but in 3 different variations results in only 1 type of Tree.
Can it be my set up / of network related?

If it is realated to the forrest pack: Please help to fix these annoying bugs.

We cannot reproduce the problem here, variations seems to work fine (Max 2014, FP 4.1.5, Laubwerk 1.0.7, VRay 2.40.04). In any case, Laubwerk works completely different from XFrog.

Please, tell us more details about your configuration. Do you select variations from the Creation panel, or from Modify panel once created Forest ?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I use 3Ds Max 2013 (2014 installed, but not yet configured the plugin)
I use latest forest pack.

I make a large plane and start with a Forrest pack object.
I then use the library browser to select the 3 variations 1 one go.
It seems to happen with the Red frangipani Middle aged variants. The Young and Fully grown don't have the problem.
Maybe more, but I don't have the time now to test all of them.

The strange thing is that the colors in the viewport act as if there are 3 variations used. But when rendering I can see they are all the same tree.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi KN1988,

this seems to be caused by a problem in the Laubwerk Catalog files. We fixed the file for the upcoming 1.0.8 update but 1.0.7 still has it. If you don't want to wait for the update, you can use the attached file to fix it yourself. Open the Laubwerk Forest Pack catalog location in the explorer. When you sticked with the default installation path, it will be at: C:\Program Files\Laubwerk\Plants for Forest Pack. In there are folders for each installed plant species. Inside each species folder is a laubwerk.ms file that you can replace with the one attached to this message. That should fix your problem.

EDIT: Since this is only needed for the initial import into Forest Pack, this process only needs to be done on the workstation, not on any machine that's a pure render client.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Best
Timm
