    Another question. So I am looking for a tool to build a mesh that follows the contour of a terrain. Basically would like to click and have it then generate a mesh that I can export to a 3d program. The idea of my project is to have a off road track or road where I need to have more advanced texturing than what the standard unity terrain provides. I would uv map that mesh in say blender and then overlay that mesh on the terrain. Is there a way to do that with AFWB? Thanks again.

    Interesting. AFWB only cares about the terrain height along the forward direction of the fence, i.e. It doesn’t care about any variation side-to-side. In the case of a road with width, would you need to care about that, e.g. Camber?

    If It’s enough to use a road or track that remains flat across its width, it could be possible to make a mod that does what you need. Could you contact the support address and we can discuss it, as it’s probably a bit off topic.

    Cheers

    Is there an update coming? I'm using 2019.3 and there are a number of 'obsolete' warnings?

    Yes, it will be submitted next week. Updates include a choice of section joint styles, improved realtime demo, some new motorsport-style fencing, and a basic path mode.
    In the meantime, none of those new warnings will affect functionality, but I appreciate it’s nice not to have them.

    Thanks Joe. I was trying this in latest 2018 LTS and I'm also getting obsolete warnings - same deal?

    That’s odd, thanks, I hadn’t checked the LTS, my understanding was they didn’t change any APIs. But yes, same deal.
    I’ll post again next week when it’’s submitted, but if you want a script update now to remove the warnings, you can drop a line to support.

    There are some minor issues in the latest Unity 2019.3 with menu and button names being truncated. This will be fixed in an update soon.

    Thanks

    We're ready to submit an update for any cosmetic issues and warnings found with the new Unity 2019.3 update.

    I've fixed a couple of labels that were getting their text truncated, along with the previously mentioned benign, but annoying warnings.

    If anyone has spotted anything else, please post here and I'll include it in tomorrow's bugfix submission, or a further feature update the following week (I've separated it in to two updates as one of the new features needs re-doing for 2019.3)

    Thanks

    Joe

    Ran into some problems recently when building multiple fences per scene and going back and editing them. I will suddenly start getting the errors below and the fence seems like it loses all of the control points and drops portions of the fence.

    Ok, I’ll look in to it, can you tell me AFWB, OS, and Unity versions?

    thanks

    Hi martman100, did you ever see this issue again? If so, could you let us have the version details (or at the least the Unity version for now).
    It would also be useful to know if this happened with preset fences, a user preset, or with user prefabs.

    Does the issue resolve if you move (or insert) one of the control points. Or change and revert the preset? Or click off Auto Fence Builder in the hierarchy, and back to it again?

    Thanks

    Joe
