Thanks for your query. Using both the X and y evenly inputs should create a evenly spaced rows and columns of lights like this:
But it is my guess that you are trying to create an evenly spaced grid with one light on each grid intersection? There are a number of ways to solve this problem, perhaps the easiest is to simple wire the light to the default input and use padding to create spaces between the lights. The disadvantage of this is that you will have to adjust the values manually to obtain an even distribution. In this example I've exported the values so that it's easier to adjust without opening the style editor.
Alternatively, If you'd like to take advantage of RailClones adaptive modes to automatically space the lights, try the following:
- Set the generator's Rules>default segment>mode to adaptive
- Wire the light segment to the Y Evenly input
- Now you should be able to use the Y Evenly distance to control the distance vertically.
- Use equal values in the left/right padding to control the distance horizontally. This may need adjusting slightly to minimise the segment stretching.
I've attached a Max file with both techniques mentioned above in a single style for you to look at.
Hope that helps, if not please let me know and I'll do what I can to assist further.
