Dropping objects onto a terrain
on Sep 20, 2010 at 2:43:05 pm

I\'m currently creating a 3d terrain and virtual city. I have imported around 11,000 extruded buildings from autocad and was hoping short of moving them manually there might be a trick to having them drop onto the terrain (sit on it)? Hopefully someone knows how to save me a couple of days mind numbing work. Thanks.

I cant solve this for you but if I were to do this I would investigate using a particle system with an attach to object operator. The hard part is getting the buildings to be controlled by particles. If my memory serves me correct there is a script very similar to this at Boboland.
