User-defineable flag's would be helpful not only for other nations, such as Azerbaijan, but for the innumerable other kinds of flags, such as government agencies, sports teams, military organizations, corporations, etc.

I would rather have a library of generic flags (user supplies their own diffuse map), than the current library of flags. It would be important for the generic flags to support opacity maps or alpha channels, though. Not all flags are the same shape or proportion.

and please offer different wind variations ( or even better adjustment to the wind factor defined in lumion weather settings).

could the flag thing please be set on top of todolist (after bug fixing !)
i think everybody wants flags !

The flags are pre-animated, so they can't react to the wind force. The reason is that pre-animated objects have a much smaller impact on performance than using a spring-based cloth simulation.

To quote the Blender website "...cloth simulation is one of the hardest aspects of CG, because it is a deceptively simple real-world item that is taken for granted, yet actually has very complex internal and environmental interactions."

And from an end-user perspective spring-based cloth simulations are challenging to set up correctly due to the multitude of parameters, such as viscosity.

than please make three variants so we can choose form nearly no wind, normal wind and strong wind.

[thumbs up] - if not use -defineable at least the generic flags in just white would be nice. 
I would love to have animated flags, but we work with different states and local governments...we can't simply show only the US flag and leave two flagpoles empty.

Custom textures for the flags are not yet possible, but it is a feature that the developers would like to add in a future update.

Maybe the possibility to add a custom bitmap to the flag and also to choose the dimension and proportion of the flag. Sometimes I would like to use a long portrait like orientation flag with a company logo on it...

Also the idea with 2-3 different wind power is nice.

Keep up the good work!

One more vote for generic flags to which you can add your own textures.

hi,
alternatively u can use a chromakey overlay with a static camera like this

but waiting for this feature

Thanks. Indeed, a lot of things could be added easily with chromakey, if you use only static cameras... But most people will prefer non-static shots.
