    If you're adding a new object to the scene, make sure "static" is turned on. Then, turn on "lock atlas" in the lightmapping tab. Then, select the new object and click on "bake selected."

    Start a new scene with all new objects complete the steps necessary to render static lighting. I'm not sure what the problem is. If you've read the Unity Lightmapping Quickstart and followed it closely everything should work just fine.

    Sorry Mihai93, but I can't provide much more support on Unity's features. The steps outlined in the Lightmapping Quickstart that I posted to you earlier is enough to fix your issue. There are several youtube videos on using the lightmapper which is a good place to start.

    Are you able to bake lighting on assets that are not from the UCP?

    Is the first time im using Lightmaping and im not the best on english so for me is more hard to understand how to do the right lightmaping you do.

    • I drag and drop model into scene.
    • after i go on Lightmaping Windows
    • I selected Object
    • After into Lightmapping windows into Object i select Lightmap Static
    • After i take Bake selected.


    This are settings



    So what is wrong?

    what you do diference from me?

    I think I might understand.

    Make sure you select the building AND objects that receive shadows from that building, then bake selected. When you hit "bake selected," lighting and shadows will only be applied to what you selected. Every other object will keep their old lighting and shadows. Does that help?

    Thank you! Do you still intend to fix the z-fighting here? Just checked and the z-fighting is still present on that building.

    It's probably best to contact Michael O for support on his package. If you need general Unity help, try searching on http://answers.unity3d.com This forum thread is for news and support for the Urban Construction Pack.

    Version 1.31 is in review to the asset store. Fixed:

    • The transforms of gameobjects now show world-space rotations like everyone is used to.
    • Added Standard Assets (mobile) package so mobile demo scene's first person controller will work now.

    I checked the asset and the issue isn't there. However, it exists in the mobile demo scene because those assets have been combined and therefore disassociated with the source mesh. Where are you seeing it?

    Just took this screenshot this morning. If you're facing the double-doors, it's on the left side. Just be sure that light mode is off, or that the left side of that building has light shining on it. (The issue is hard to see in flat ambient/bounce light).

    I see it. I will fix it in the next update.

    In the meantime, check out the new Quantum Theory site at http://bit.ly/13V0Fl4 It's been entirely redesigned with updated demos and screenshots.

    Why don't bridges have roads on them ?
    How do you make bridges ? if I align a bridge with a ''matching'' road it does not fit , I ended up using roads with sidewalks so it fits on bridges but then even if its aligned part of the sidewalk clips thru the side of the bridge .. its like no roads fits bridges properly.
    but worst is trying to align a ramp with a bridge they cant be aligned at the same height.
    Did I miss something to properly make bridges? thx !

    Bridges don't have roads on them for performance reasons. All bridges and "Double" roads do fit together as illustrated in the demo scenes. They snap edge-to-edge, vertex-to-vertex. It can be tricky as the road has a slight bevel to it, but they do fit.

    You are right they fit ! but they don't snap , you have to manually find the right height.

    Now i'm just having trouble aligning these bridge ramps with other bridge parts or roads to lower part of ramps , when I ctrl+alt+a it and then move it in place holding ctrl i cant get height or distance.

    Think the only thing is that its aligning to the lower part of the bridge instead of the road part of the bridge.

    But other then that I like the pack a lot of stuff in it to make a nice looking city :)

    Sure, I can do that for you this evening. Email support@quantumtheoryentertainment.com with your invoice number and a description of the shader you need.

    Or, if you're confident enough, the strumpy shader graphs are included in the Shaders folder. Feel free to edit them.

    It's coming soon. Here's what is left to do:

    1. Rewrite the shaders without using Strumpy Shader Editor. This will yield some better performance on mobile.
    2. Recalculate the lighting in the mobile scene.
    3. Build for Android Pro and iOS Pro with occlusion culling and the new 4.2 bloom effects.
    4. Video series on how to use the pack.

    If you're referring to the one in the web player demo, that is just the Ultimate FPS controller found on the asset store. I can't release that.

    The next web player demo will use Unity default controllers.

    There's nothing wrong with using the UFPS controller; the default Unity FPS controller is so bad I sometimes get turned off from webplayers that use it. The point being, if a product is geared toward first-person use, I think using UFPS is a better way to illustrate the end use, since there's no way anyone is going to use the default controller, where UFPS is a fairly safe bet.

    However, that said, I also think it should be made aware to users/potential clients. This way, not only are you able to create "simulations" of gameplay scenarios using assets not included in your package, but adding a note/image/link to the assets not included on the webplayer page would be a way for content publishers to cross-promote other products in return.

    "Like the FPS controller used in this webplayer demo? Get it HERE." Etc.

    Thank you for the complements! I hope you enjoy it. If you don't mind, please consider providing feedback on your purchase in the asset store. It really helps me in creating more content for the future.

    In the meantime, I've started a YouTube video tutorial series on using the Urban Construction Pack. You can watch it here:
    YouTube Tutorial Series

    More videos will be added soon. Enjoy!

    $ucp issues.JPG

    Anyone else getting the errors in the pic above when trying to import the latest version from the asset store? I can't seem to get rid of them.


    Basically all variations of:

    Assets/Quantum Theory/UCP/Standard Assets/Image Effects (Pro Only)/MotionBlur.cs(51,38): error CS1061: Type `UnityEngine.RenderTexture' does not contain a definition for `MarkRestoreExpected' and no extension method `MarkRestoreExpected' of type `UnityEngine.RenderTexture' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)


    Pretty much all complaining about image effects under UCP Standard Assets folder image effects

    Edit: Ugh looks like it now requires me to upgrade to 4.2? I'm on 4.1.5f and last time I attempted an upgrade to 4.2 it broke my project for a week and had to rollback. Waiting till 4.3 now since I don't trust 4.2 at all.

    Hi Rico,

    These errors with red exclamation points aren't related to anything necessary for UCP to work properly. You can delete the files they're referencing as they're just post effects.

    Hello all, we just released our debut game - Total Parking, which extensively uses Urban Construction Pack, on Google Play
    Check out the game here http://goo.gl/XF9rqq

    UCP is awesome. Our game even runs on devices with 512 MB ram, and with the right compression techniques, we got the build size under 20 MB.

    I purchased this pack and think it's great! We used it in our tutorial video for Cinema Mo Cap.
