save an object with two spheres ... for a population
« on: February 06, 2018, 02:18:45 PM »
Hello, No idea if that is possible, personally I do not find solutions.
Here I have added to an object two spheres in specific places.
I would like to know if it is possible to save with Terragen this "all" in one object and then reproduce it in populations of objects. The only thing I managed to do is to save this set in a clip file, but if I change the location of my object in space the two spheres obviously don't follow.

As an example, imagine putting two spheres of light at the headlights of a car (object) then saving the whole to be able to reproduce it in a population.
Thank you very much.

Can't be done, I'm afraid. You can save as tgc, but not use as pop. Or you'd have to save the whole combination in an external program.
In case you still haven't seen enough of my work: www.ulco-art.nl

Alternatively, you can export your chosen object to another software. There, create two sphere primitives where you like and then save this as a new object file. This way you can group all fixtures and, effectively, create new object working as one and moving in unity.
