Object (Instance?) Hierarchy/Viewer
« on: May 26, 15, 09:29:17 PM »

Ok - this is driving me nuts... I was working on some water stuff, and somehow I lost the water object in the scene (..... no idea) - I am sure its there, but I cannot find it.

In another (non-mmo) tool, there is a concept of an object hierarchy explorer, where all your assets for a given scene are in an explorer view.  If I am working on something, I can click the object in the explorer, and it will give focus to the object i want to work on, another keypress and it takes me to the object in the scene.

Is there anything like this at all in Heroengine?

Thanks!

Yes, look under Editors tab, then select assets. Open the models (I think for objects) section. This should give you the Model ID and location of it. Right clicking on that will give you options.

and if you are in the fly camera mode, you can double click on the asset and it will fly you to it.

As well as Ctrl + G while asset selected
