How to crate a piece of paper
Step 1, get the newspaper object and place it on the ground


Step 2, flip it upsidedown

Step 3. use the scale tool to make it more narrow on each side till it looks around the general size of a piece of copypaper.

And there you go, you can also make it shorter and even more skinny to look like a letter, so you could fill a post office with them.

How to make Semi trailers look fine without the semi itself
Step 1
Place the Semi #2 object and put wheels on it

Step 2
Lower it down tot he ground to where its reasonable so the wheels are touching the groudn but not the trailer itself

Step 3
Put the object Cinderblock under the supports like so or you can use scaled pallets to look like boards. its kinda odd how to do it so I will probably post another info guide on how to make boards out of pallets and other objects

And there you go, I know its not perfect but its better than having basically floating trailers.

How to make working computers…sorta, I guess technically it could count as a loading screen.
Step 1
get the object computer #4 (or any computer object that has a screen/TV)and the greece screen object.

Step 2
Click the computer screen and press Ctrl+B then click the greece screen object and press Ctrl+V then move the object up until its level with the screen, turn it to the side and move it forwards till its visible.

Step 3
Scale the screen until it fits the computer and make sure its not outside of the range of the pc, keep in mind it will be pretty hard to select the screen after this so make sure you do it right.

And there you have it, a computer that looks like its turned on.

How to create a wide screen tv that doesn’t need to be set on a wall
Step 1
Get television #1 object and place it down, (make sure its over a table or whatever you want it on)

Step 2
Scale down the tv to a smaller size and lower it closer to the table/whatever else it is

Step 3
Copy the TV and paste it, flip it forward and bring it down to where its level with the table (Use Ctrl+c then Ctrl+v to copy and paste it)

Step 4
Scale the tv thats on the bottom to a much smaller size, like so

Step 5
copy the smaller tv/ the base and move it up, then scale it a lot smaller

Step 6
After that increase its height using the scale tool until its touching the TV, and make sure its not poking through the bottom

And there you go, you now have a good looking TV that isnt an old box or on the wall!!

How to add more detail to your map
Step 1
Get the object bricks #1 and start placing it randomly do the same with Newspaper #1

Step 2
Get some detailed vehicles and place them around the place(looks better if some of them are wrecked) TIP: a way to make the map more apocalyptic is to make places where fuel would be, blown up. Example, the truck that has a blast mark on it is a Cerberus modified to hold fuel instead of missiles. and resulting in a gunfight with the military, exploded along with all except one for the fuel things xd

Step 3
Add crates and adjust the tires on some of the vehicles to look more damaged, also add some random garbage bags as well. I would also advise a couple stacks of pallets as well. ( I know they look out of place but it helps the feel)

Step 4
Add the Bullet decal marks that are used on greece and possibly add even more crates, bricks, newspapers ect. Also add a table near a military vehicle to have a crate on as well. Road blocks would also help the feel of it. I also advise adding some beer and wine bottle around but scaling them down to a smaller size. Also add glass pieces by some of the cars. TIP: Adding crates on top of pallets will make them seem more used, along with pipes or other stuff.

And there you go! The less plain it looks, the better. Ill probably do stuff like this more often so check this often!
Oh btw, this image is going to be part of my Saint Pete’s Island/The last Island map so head over and download it!
