If you have the problem of the buildings clumping together when you first create them you need to go to the layers effects > Group 1 > Particle Replicator > Then Increase the Shape Scale and the buildings should spread apart. This works in the newest version of E3D.

When I Bring my text on the screen The box the Text is in is so small, I can't see the whole text. Why is that? I hop that makes sense.

sooooooo any ideas on the V2 issue of the buildings "clumping" instead of randomizing position like in the tut? I really want to use this pack, but it is NOT a time saver if I have to make 30 layers to place the buildings inna "random" manner.

Remove them from the group folder and instead have them exist on group 1 a separate layers (within the Scene panel in Element 3D.)

When you add buildings like in the tutorial it doesn't randomize them, but if you use the city blocks, it will work. I hope this isn't how it is supposed to work in Ev2. Hope it gets fixed soon.

I can't get this to work with E3D 2.0? It seems that the random seed doesn't work the same way? I have all of the models showing up in the same place instead of randomizing?

I'm having the same problem. In E3D2 I selected 7 buildings, and in AE, following your steps, results in 50 iterations of my stack of buildings, as opposed to 50 random buildings. Any help would be great.
