Hi,

You should be able to do this by introducing some conditional logic. We have several macros available in the library that can help with this. I've solved it as follows



Please see the attached file for the example.

Thanks for the help and solution, but that it would not be easy :) My problem now is that I only want the stairs on the lowest building to disappear and on the other higher buildings to still be :)  Is it possible to do it somehow ?

Apologies, I didn't spot that it was randomised. Please take a look at the updates to the attached Max file for a possible solution.

This is a really nice style BTW!

Best,

Paul

Thank you Paul, everything works as it should, this is just a small fragment of what I sent you from the whole node :) when everything is finished, I will definitely show the final project. I still have a question whether you are planning to publish a similar tutorial to this "All RailClone's Operators Explained" but to the macro, because I know a lot, but still the macro section is black magic for me and I don't know where to look for any tutorials for this because I would love to see the full possibilities of railclone.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. I do indeed have plans for more macros tutorials, although probably not all in one video. I'll focus on individual macros if they're particularly interesting, or on groups of similar macros. Hope that'll help!

Best.
Paul
