Post subject: Accurate scale tool Reply with quote

Is there an accurate scale tool in Zmod that can scale an object to a certain scale eg. 1:72.

Just because I am wondering how you all accuratley scale your cars (and buses) in mm2, or is it just by putting the car ingame and judging by eye how big it should be.

Cheers Smile

The object properties in Zmod give dimensions in Metres so... Thats the easiest way

Thank you, so does that mean that all your buses are the same size as the real thing Joey?

What you do is for example, look up the length of the Mustang Fastback (183.6 inches, as from the vehicle showcase). Than you open the Fastback in ZModeler and see how long it is in units (exactly 5 units).

If you divide 5 units by 183.6 inches, you have the scaling factor. You can than multiply this ratio by the length of your bus in inches:

Code:
5 / 183.6 * length


That gives you the width of your bus in MM2 units. You will have a very accurate size if you do it this way.

I do it another way. In TOP or FRONT view, I scale (holding SHIFT ofcourse) according to the first lines of the Normal Grid.
