I am following the the terrain tutorial in the Unity Game Development Essentials. Great book for beginners btw. However when I attempt to paint the trees it crashes. It allows me to set the values in the Inspector, and load the mesh. As soon as I click the terrain to paint. Crash.
This is what I am setting my values
Here is the directions from the book(It is for an older version of Unity, but I adjusted values for my 2.6v):
Bend Factor here allows our trees to
sway in the wind. This effect is
computationally expensive, so we'll
simply use a low number. Type in a
value of 2 and press Enter to confirm.
If you find that this is causing low
performance later in development, then
you can always return to this setting
and set it back to zero. Click on the
Add button to finish. With your palm
tree in the palette, you should see a
small preview of the tree with a blue
background to show that it is selected
as the tree to place. Set the Brush
Size to 15 (painting 15 trees at a
time) and the Tree Density to 0
(giving us a wide spread of trees).
Set Color Variation to 0.4 to give us
a varied set of trees and Tree Height
/ Width to 1.5 with their Variation
settings to 0.3. Using single-clicks,
place trees around the coast of the
island, near the sandy areas that you
would expect to see them. Then to
complement the island's terrain, place
a few more palm trees at random
I am loving this engine so far, and this is the only hiccup I have had. Any ideas from the experts?
