Information on where to find the PEVSoft tools...


This tool allows the quick and easy creation of shadow meshes for assets that require it, based on the size of the parent object.

There are 4 different shadow types:

 Simple Shadow - This is a rolling-stock only option, which creates a low-poly shadow using the billboarding technique.
 Low Poly Shadow - This creates a low poly shadow using the progressive mesh collapsing technique.
 Rectangular Box Shadow - This creates a box shadow based on the size of the parent mesh.
 Full Shadow - This creates a full shadow based on the parent mesh without poly reduction.
