Changing a Plane Population to a Cube Population
« on: April 03, 2019, 07:42:39 PM »
There was no option to create a Cube population from the object creation menu so I made a plane population and replaced it with a cube, but Terragen seems to crash sometimes during the populating, or sometimes a while after.  Shouldn't Terragen procedural cubes work as population objects?

I was just using cubes for testing, and plan on using OBJ's eventually, but for a quick test it would be handy to be able to create quick cube populations.

At the moment, populations don't work with the "displaceable" object types, only the ones in the Population menu. I wasn't aware that it could lead to a crash, so we'll have to fix that. Of course the long term plan is to be able to populate any of the built-in objects.

I wonder if the crash was caused by something else in the Frontier build. There have been other reports of crashes which we haven't pinpointed yet.
