    Just got it and started diving into the blueprints. The amount of included detail features is really much appreciated and makes this template a good starting point in my view, thank you. Are you planning to re-release your former Cars packs for this? I'd be interested then.

      Thank you HaBe2305,
      The previous releases of the cars are prepared and ready for use with the new package. You could see the video here and download the Polymodels Cars Bundlle here for free. We have combined all the cars into one pack and added example levels, like in the Polymodels Traffic Car. The installation is very easy: download the archive and put the content of the archive into the Content folder of your project. Important note: your Content folder should have Polymodels Traffic Car inside so Polymodels Cars Bundle will work properly.
      Please let us know should you have any ideas or issues regarding the use or development of the Poymodels Traffic Car.

      Best regards, Team

        #4 Just wow for now. The amount of features and content with the additional free bundle for the price tag is amazing. Thank you very much for giving so much for so little. I also just got a spline based procedural road generation tool and while watching your videos, my first thought for improvement immediately was that creation for those lane splines the cars are following should be automated in some form. Since the roads I'm using are already based on a spline, that should be doable. I'll give it a try and let you know should I be able to achieve anything if you're interested. I'll also take notes for other possible improvements/additions and post them here then in case there's something I can think of. Thanks for being open to suggestions.


          Thank you HaBe2305,
          we are certainly are open for suggestions to implement new features in the pack. As for the automated spline lane generation you mentioned, the original idea of the pack was that the user could use any tool available to make the splines to follow. It's definitely doable to make a blueprint which will make the roads and lanes automatically, as long as the user could explain what functionality is expected.


   Well, having a full fledged traffic simulator would certainly be for another asset and also a much higher price tag. But what would be nice to have in your asset as a starting helper and point of extension by the user would be some blueprint tool that generates a configurable amount of lane splines parallel to a selected center road spline (I'm using Snappy Roads tool right now for road creation which is also spline based). How those splines connect at crossings, intersections and how the AI reacts at these places is certainly up to the user to work out then. But I think a little helper like that would speed up the creation process by a fair amount when incorporating your traffic system into any spline based project setting, so it would be universal enough to be of use for anyone. Don't get me wrong, really just suggesting right now. I'm more than happy with what I already got from you.


              I can't change the scale of the car when i add it to the Roadspline. The scale is returning to the default scale, is there a way to change the scale and keeping it when the car is added to the spline ?


       Do you have discord ?

                  Generally it's not a good idea to change the scale of the actor blueprint with skeletal mesh in it. You will get the physics with unpredictable result. In the level blueprint and in the car blueprint there are a few functions that use the set actor transform which are return the actor scale to the 1,1,1. You can try to change these functions by yourself, at your risk, because the package doesn't have this functionality.

                    No, we don't have the discord yet. We might add it later.
