Thanks Lumion team for quickly adding new plants to library. The addtion on single plants in addtion to groups of plantings is already helping when adding plantings to a more formal landscape around a building. A suggestion would be to take care to not over saturate the colors too much in the flowers and the overall tone of the greens. Overall it is a good addtion.
I would still also like to see the snap disabled for "plant to plant" so it does not accidently snap to the top of another plant when placing several plants in a close area. It is a pain to have to move them down to the ground plane when this happens. I understand and use the the "G" key while placing keeps the plants locked to the Lumion Ground plane, but in real world modeling in architecture, your grass, sidewallks in the model are extuded at least 6-10" above the ground plane so the "G" comand becomes useless. This rule should also apply to people, cars, and any other item that would never stack onto of each other.
Finally, I also still hope to see the ablity to lock the imported bases models so they do not get moved by accident. With no undo command when this happens, re-aligning the model to match the exact spot to placed Lumion entourage can be real fustrating.
I know you are working hard with all the request, but wanted to keep plugging these!!
I am really excited how this software is progressing and even more exciteid to see how contuines to progress in the future.
