Hi!

You should find that these parameters are available in the export menu of the most recent stable version of RailClone.



Many thanks,

Paul

I should have installed the latest version before bringing this up. Apparently I'm using 2.3.4  :-X

Hi everyone ! I found some nice idea which will be great to create with railclone.
But i don't know if railclone could succeed this challenge (fig 2 and 3).

Fig 1 is for say you can controll each corner. Like you set a segment into the railclone object for the first corner, the second corner is an other segment, the third an other again... That's will be a good tutorial for the conditionnal operator (if i do not make a mistake). And for create unique buildings (in opposite to symmetric buildings).

Fig 2 and 3, it's like create a limit on the clipping aera, when the railclone object reach this limit, some segments are translated on a specific axis.

Sorry for my english, i wait your answers  :P

Hi Bruno,

thanks for the suggestions, those are interesting example and I think they should be possible with RailClone. I'll look into it as a possible future tut.

Many thanks,

Hey guys, I would definitely like to see a tips and tricks tutorial on windows and doors. I noticed in the features video you showed us a window that was made up of multiple arrays. I would like to see that style in more detail and start adapting and creating my own styles like it.

Thanks!
Brendan

Hi Brendan,

Thanks for the suggestion. We've had a few requests for this now so it's going on our to-do list. That style is actually available in our "Getting Started with RailClone" guide in Chapter 11. Just scroll down to the generator padding section and you'll a link to download. The chapter only discusses generator padding but you may find the style useful to reverse engineer while we prepare new tutorials.

You may also find this post on the forum useful as it discusses a similar case.

Many thanks!

Hey,

I don't know if it was ever brought up and sorry if repeating. I suggest that additional global scaling options could be great.
Now we have only Global Scale option in Geometry dropout. Sometimes I don't need to scale proportionally and I don't mind if it will be stretched a little.
If I want it to be done now, I must open Style Editor and customize each segment separately which is a pain for many known reasons.
So if there were separate Global X Scale / Global Y Scale / Global Z Scale  options in the Geometry dropout I could have done this in seconds.

Hi Itoo,

Would be great to be able to DL and see the files/scenes used in the examples on this page.

Is it possible?

Thanks!

Hi!

Most of those scene files have made their way into the Getting Started With RailClone guide and the Next Steps with RailClone guide. The download links are in the introduction chapter to each guide. If there's something else that isn't in the guide, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Many thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. Lots of requests for this so roof tiling is top of our priorities list for the next update.

Thanks!

a seed parameter for the randomization could be nice, instead of manual input of numbers.
