      This is a method to let you reset cameras in Gmax with a right-click on the viewport as in 3ds Max. This is useful when after previewing different views with BAT scripts you are left with an ortho view locked in where perspective used to be, or you accidentally shift one of the top/left/side views into perspective and want it back.

    • ok .. i just worked at the LOD .. i worked down from the original model and deleted all details .. i choosed to delete also the weight-bearing part .. i assume from the distance it will be not necessary. It has now 163 and a texture with 512 px. thats how it looks :   is this fine?   sorry for bothering you - its my first attempt and i have no experience if it is right or not.   see you   
    • i am flashed .. amazing work ... and eventually just a bit too much light - the 3d picture is quite bright.  
    • Thanks a lot for all your suggestions they helped !   Anyway - i finished the Model with light and texturing - all to do is the LOD-part. I realized that you can use the Move-It Mod also in the Assets-Editor and i used it to move the Ingame Floodlights into my Lamps here the "final" preview (the train is one the Game generates - Fits perfect) :     if you have any suggestions regarding the Model - don´t hesitate At the end .. i used a Rock Template for this Model .. so it needs no Road or anything else. What is your Opinion? Is a another Template better for the use?   And i installed also the "Asset UI Category Changer" - technically i should choose to put it where it belongs - in the Train tab .. is there any known problem with this?   and again .. thanks for help & suggestions - fine community this is
    • Looking good, it will be a good addition. About scale issues in blender. (In case you dont know) When you choose 'metric' for measurement and put 0.01 in 'scale' then you are ready to go. In that way you can use real measurements (for me it is meters) and you wont need to play with scale while importing asset(leave it 1). It is also good to put a box equal to 1 cell in game (8x8 m) while modeling. Or you can use simple 90cm x 180cm box when you want to compare your model with human size (especially good for building with doors) . These are very simple tricks, probably you already know them but I learned them very late my bad  
    • When you have time...we win! Those are awesome looking..thanks so much
