PRMITIVES
and
CORRECT CENTRE AXIS POINTS.

I know the issue in in tune with many, but we specifically need.....

Thin pipes in a range of thicknesses. Something overlooked in the objects so far.

Some of the objects / primitives are offset regarding their X axis point so that when you try to make them thinner they become mis-shapen on a triangular plane and will NOT thin down on one axis.

My only workaround with this is to attach IT to a standard object that WILL conform correctly to resizing and then make it invisible.

Before anyone tries to correct me on this YES I know we can re-place the core axis point, but what this does NOT do is reshape along that same axis. Sounds odd, but it's true.

We need "graduated" curved pipes or "sticks". That is, something that is almost spiral-like. it starts off narrow, spirals outwards one complete turn and then stops in a spiralised growth patern.
Like "one circuit of a spiral" but flattened. The only person who'll visualise that is someone who models these objects. Smile
Thin ones and thick ones.

Hello All,Smile

What I would find extremely useful, in fact other software (such as FrameForge) do have this facility already, is to (say) hold down Ctrl or Alt, whilst clicking on a character and a chair. This would produce a menu of actions such as, sit on chair, or stand on chair (perhaps)...Wink  Or, hold down Ctrl or Alt, whilst clicking on a character, a seat and a piano. The character sits down ready to play (maybe even plays an opening chord)... BigGrin

The possibilities are endless, and would be extremely useful to a beginner such as myself. If a developer were to produce a pack such as this, I would be first in line to buy it... w00t

My reason for this wish list? The characters do everything but operate in the way expected by me, although I do expect that's largely my fault...Crying

Best regards.

Ken

PS: Still have characters disappearing, or sinking into the floor on complex sets, causing me to lose enormous amounts of time without achieving anything...Crazy

The more I learn, the more I realise, I know nothing!

How about a human toon character generator which works in a similar way to the monster workshop

============================== UPON REFLECTION===========================================

I've just noticed that despite my agonising struggle to document the Creation of an Architecturally accurate Jing, Qing and Yuan Chinese Dynasty garden........... there's a gaping failing.

Look at the Water. WHere are the draped Roses hanging from the Water Walkway?

The Dynamic Cloth in iClone doesn't reflect on the water. Oh Boy! I just don't believe it.  Crying

Why specifically the Dynamic Cloth. I use this because it moves in the wind like the real ones would have done as I imagined them to.

In the next version of iClone it would be good if we didn't embarrass ourselves to the Chinese with something as basic as the reflection of a prop. Unsure

Since your Dynamic Cloth didn't reflect on the water, my eyes were looking for the reflection of the Nude Avatar / chinese girl on the water. Was it too blurry ? Did we get the camera angle right to get that reflection ?

w00t Tongue BigGrin Ahhh SHADDUP!

Actually, she has very pert boobies... thanks to Alley as she's one of the Chinese Low Polly Characters but, I might add from a testosteronic point of view... not SO low poly that curvature and shapeliness have been ignored. 

On THIS sideline topical.... didn't the ancient Chinese have very flat chests?  I thought they bound themselves tightly????? I ought to be the one who knows this but it's not a topic that, erm, pops out very regularly. Wink

Alley? You designed them, not me. Historical faithfulness?

The water does have some work to be done with it!! Blush Blush Blush  

Luckily some lillies grew in just the right place.  Is there a Chinese version of The Frog Prince I wonder!? Tongue

 

On a serious note regarding beating the lacking reflections, I considered having upturned Water Walkways and misted the water so that it redembles a reflection but then I would need to mimic everything, swan, grass, trees, clouds, everything because I would need to turn the reflection OFF the water completely as syncing the walkway with its reflection perfectly took almost a century.

This magical water checks if a visitor carries any hidden weapon ! She could have been an assassin ! Thank God, this beauty is not !

Cog Wheels

Regarding content it would be very beneficial if we had some basics in global engineering as well.

Particularly in my thoughts are Cog Wheels.

Wooden, iron, chrome, and variability in their teeth also so that we can clock them together for mechanisms for bridge hoists and drawbridges etc.

With all these special cloths about I am surprised this one has not been voiced yet.

Take a massive piece of cloth.

Now take some primitives or an avatar and lay them on the ground where youd like the Set to bump about.

Now drop the massive cloth (Textured with grass and gravel) on top of the rocks, avatars and primitives on the ground....

VOILA! (I have to type it out?)
OK! We have a superb landscape. We didn't have to even work on it.

It would be good it we could "stiffen" this so that it now does NOT flex about physically and allows itself to become terrain-ish.
