Hello,

I want to add some different car models in the complete street rule. But I cannot manage the .obj models. Because when I add the new models in the car assets folder, the model's directions and scale could be wrong. So I want to ask you, how can I add the .obj car models in that directory. And how can I manage the problem that occurs as directions and scale? Thank you for your answers.

Where are your different cars/3D models coming from? To achieve the proper results, you will want to standardize the direction/rotation of all of your 3D assets so the rule file places them with consistency. I'd suggest using Blender/SketchUp/3ds Max to cleanup your models and make sure there is consistency with their scale, orientation, and center point. From there it may be some simple edits to the Complete Streets Rule to get your new cars in. It should be very simple if your 3D objects are well organized.

Hi All, 

Sorry I have not logged on in a while. 

Generally when you add models, you need to make sure they are aligned to match the OBJs already in the folder. I have been also looking for new vehicles/objs to add to the rule so if you have anything that you think might be worth adding, let me know. 

Once you create the files, make sure they generally match the naming conventions in the folder. The rule searches for specific objs using wild cards when allocating vehicles. So, if you have a plain car, don't label it as a Taxi_XXXX.obj.
