Environment query
I've been getting nowhere fast with linking the Environment object into a small test World I'm setting up using the World Editor. It shows up fine in the Editor but refuses to appear when I run the code (just a copy of the "02 - World" code from the Tutorials project)
A couple of screenshots to clarify:

RE: Environment query
Ok, I've kind of figured it... by dragging the Environment element into the World viewport, I now have at least a blue sky background on running the app. I now have to figure out how to get the shadow that shows up so clearly in the World Editor view.
I'm just finding it a bit of a hassle, paging backwards and forwards between the documentation, video tutorials, and forum answers whenever I reach a sticking point.
It would be nice to have a FAQ and HowTo easily available and updated on a regular basis.

LATER EDIT:

At last... grin

Grats smile And nice... table... I think... <_<

It takes a bit to figure it out, but the rest is far easier. The documentation isn't Esenthel's strongest suite, but you get to know the coding style and it gets easier to understand how things work.

Quote:Applying Environments

You can access Environments manually from the codes and apply them there, or apply them onto Worlds as their default Environment.

To apply as a default Environment of a World:
1.Open desired World Element
2.Drag and Drop an Environment Element at any location onto the Viewport of currently opened World

Yes, it is a little different from the usual editor (but not cluttered and overwelmingly complicated). With a little practice I'll get used to it.
