Nested RC not displayed as Point Cloud
« on: April 03, 2018, 11:38:55 AM »
Hi guys,

i created a window with Railclone. I can switch the display mode of the RC to point cloud ... no problem.

As soon as i create a Railclone object with this Window as nested RC ... the display of the window switches to adaptive display and so does the new RC.

If i try to active point cloud in the newly created RC object it does not work.

Is that a bug or is it intended that nested RC-Objects are not displayed as point cloud?

Hi, no Point-cloud is not allowed for nested objects.
For performance reasons, the point-cloud is precalculated, but that's problematic for nested because the inner RC object may change.

I've added a checking for the next update, which warns about the incompatibility, and changes to other compatible mode automatically.
