Hi, I was wondering if somebody could provide some insight into adding a bunch of models to terrain that is randomly generated in chunks, I'm not sure what the best way to proceed is.
Firstly I need to pick some points randomly on my mesh right?
From what I can tell I can either RayCast random points over my whole generated terrain and get the collision points, or I could pick some random points and store them when I am making the vertices for my terrain meshes.
Once I have some random points to place things like trees I think I can do one of 2 things:
Presumably the multimesh is the better solution performance wise?
But with a multimesh I can only assign one model it, so would I have to make a new multimesh for each tree type I want to use?
Also would it be better to make one large multimesh that covers the entire terrain, or make multimeshes when I am generating the actual terrain chunks and then add them as children to the chunks or something.
Any help would be appreciated.
