Billboard Material and Plants
« on: July 29, 2019, 06:36:24 PM »
Hey all, so I have been trying to make some deco plants and I am having trouble with the location of the leaves. As you can see from the picture, the leaves aren't centered on the base of the plant. When I rotate the view, it always stays off center. Is there a way to center it? Or is it just the way billboard material works?

Thanks!

Hi. No worry. It is easy.

pictures

1. your third UV for the billboard
2. as the third UV should be, centered around 0,0
3. you can see it becomes centered but almost on the ground
4. to lift leaves and flowers up you must have your billboard as a 'cloud'

Okay see this is why I don't do modding! That graphic stuff is way over my head!
Sometimes it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of
        who do the things no one can imagine.
