You can make spline along edges (it can be done automatically in editpoly) of this platform and surface will be conformed.


Yeah but currently SplineLand won't give the inside of a closed spline a different matID, so you'd then have to manually selected it (or with a vol select).

We are thinking about cut splines for dividing surface and border it.

Pivot point issues:

Create your landobject, then move it, and re-generate. The surface is still offset!

1. Base existing contours and added river (manually trimmed the existing contours around the river.
2. Base road mesh shape from CityEngine, as padding object.
3. LandObject result, 12 iterations.
4. LandObject with road mesh from CityEngine. Note that its 10cm higher so it doesnt clip the ground (the purple matID). Hopefully I don't have to do this if further changes to the plugin are made!

What I like best is how quickly I can make changes and update the terrain - it's great!

2 requests (1 already stated):
- Cutout option for platforms
- Smoothness for platforms (so they blend better with the terrain, if you're using a distance field to blend which I think you are, apply a blur and gaussian curve to it).

Thank you for test!

At this moment I work on cutting be custom shape(spline) It can be used for cutting by platforms.
