SU 2020 (Current)
Win 10 Pro (up to date)
Trying my first big project with Skatter on a large residential development project with several ponds/wetland regions. Hoping to scatter some tall grass around these wetland areas (along with several other plant layers), but after setting up just a couple areas SU has started to lock up and not respond,usually right after I hit the Generate button. It typically will show the preview ok and will generate the scatter, but will then lock up SU with no option but to end the SU process in the task manager.
Here’s a WIP gallery for the project to give you a better idea.
Fyi, the first pond area was doing ok (approx 15k grass scatters, plus some water lilies and some prelim street trees). It’s when I get to the next larger set of ponds (ponds 2 and 3 of 8) that things started to crash. Those had about 75k scatter objects.
Anyhow, really stuck here and could really some help or input. Thanks!
P.S. A few other weird issues and possible bugs I thought I’d mention. When I open the Skatter dialog and go to edit a setup, I keep getting “You have pending changes that were not generated, are you sure you want to close the Skatter dialog?” and then, after hitting “no”, the Hosts and Scattered Objects lists will usually show duplicates of everything.
Also, Skatter seems to be deleting my layer (tags I mean… such a stupid new name)! I’ve put my setups in there own layers/tags under the render list, only to later find them cleared (blank) again and the layers/tags completely gone!
Finally there’s be several times while trying to add host objects or scattered objects that Skatter gets buggy and the select buttons/icons will stop working. Have to close/restart Skatter and reedit the setup to get it to work again.
I know V2 is getting close to beta, so maybe none of this really matter, but I thought I’d still mention it.
