Core Cert II - [Problem] Placing Objects Under Another Asset

Hello ...

I am working on the Core Cert II, this part specifically: Object Generator

Here are the specific instructions for the part I cannot get to work correctly:

I literally cannot get this to populate the tree asset underneath the trigger like the instructions show.


  • Placed a trigger above my terrain and scaled it
  • Selected the Trigger in my Hierarchy
  • Located "Tree Birch Bare 02" from the Core Content and selected it
  • Opened up the Object Generator (Window > Object Generator)
  • Made adjustments to the generator properties
  • Pressed "Populate" (even though the instructions show a different name for this button?? I don't know)
  • When I click "Populate", nothing happens.

This is what my screen looks like:


I am confused, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can someone please help me? I really don't want to continue the certification before understanding what I'm missing. :frowning:


You have minimum allowable slope = 83, that means it will only place on terrain with a near vertical slope. Set it to zero. The whole thing is pretty awkward with needing to have the trigger selected and the template, I don't know why they don't have a selection tool for them within the object placer....

omg, I feel so stupid. lolz

Thank you so much for your help!!
