Hi there, is there any way to place multiple objects rapidly? for example to fill an area with rocks, instead of placing each rock individual? thanks in advance.

What I'm asking here is a method to just click once and move the pointer without releasing the mouse botton and place objects while I'm moving my mouse until I release the mouse button, or something similar, but not the actual method of one click : one object , cause if I need to fill a big area that means a lots of clicks, any suggestion? cause I tried your method and doesn't works.

1st: Make a small patch of objects you want to distribute. Example: Some trees, grass and of course naked women.

2nd: Ctrl mouse-drag a selectionsquare around these items

3rd: Now, whilst having all the red boxes around your patch, ALT-click-move the patch. It should copy.

4th: Randomize your new selection

5th: repeat all the above with a new selection of patch1&2

This way you can fill a large area pretty quickly.


Better options for distribution of many items over surfaces are on the wishlist.
