    hi,
    I'm using MARS rules, and I'd like to have more than 1 object appear on the same plane.
    Not overlapping.
    So if I had 4 objects, A, B, C and D, I'd like them all to appear on a sofa IF there's room for them.
    Object A would appear once there was enough room detected on a surface, and then if enough extra room was detected on that surface for B to appear, it would appear in that new space (not overlapping with A's position)

    Is this possible?

    Hi @AnotherBloodyUsername , what you could do is add the component ShowChildrenInBoundsAction to your plane proxy and lay out all of your objects underneath the proxy. The action will hide all objects that fall outside the bounds of the plane. You can use the scene handles for PlaneSizeCondition to compare your layout of objects to different plane sizes.

    Thanks @amydigiov for the tips. (we changed our profile name)
    We solved it ourselves, but I'm unable to understand how, let alone explain it. Not a dev.
    I hope others can use your tips to make this work.
