View Full Version : Painting an Ecosystem on to a spherical object

hi there,

probably an easy question, but is there a way to paint a multi-object eco system on to a sherical object?

Yes, sure there is. Just like painting a terrain. In the editor for the eco system, there is an orientation option. If you have trees you can make them piont upwards as well as out from the center of the object.

Just gather your objects and populate your sphere :-)

And how would you make then go below the equator?

Rotate the sphere and paint on. This works. I often do that, rotate an item, then paint on it and after that, rotate the item back into the position I need it in.
