railclone small plane tiles with multi texture
« on: September 07, 2020, 09:27:40 PM »
Hello
I'm using the railclone small plane tiles (from the library) for a roof, but cant get multi texture working
The idea is that i use 5 - 8 different bitmaps and spread them over the whole area.

Can someone help me to achieve this?

Hi.
Let me explain the difference between multitexture and RailClone Color maps.
Multitexture works on material IDs. You need to randomize material IDs (RailClone has a node for that). RailClone color works on segments. No need to randomize IDs.


P.S. If You are using multitexture and Your segment has some other materials apart the one with multitexture, all possible variants need to have same material instance in multi-sub object material:




Both maps have their strengths and weaknesses. It is up to You which to use in Your situation.

Hope this helps

Hi Rokas

thanks for the answer, I used the MaterialID node and that did the trick :-)
