    Mark, a beautiful sight to my eyes, was this done via Substance Player, worked like a treat, if only I could do likewise with the Face Bricks, but it appears the original image wasn't suitable.

    Not substance  i did it with a program called genetica as substance could not fix the bad lighting, Genetica has slider to try and equalize the lighting

  2. The image you have found is not any good bad lighting and has no grout it will not work

    you need a image with even lighting and has half grout joint around it edges.

  3. Try and zip or compress the plan  or put it on dropbox,  google drive or one drive and send them a link, another option is add the material to library from plan materials then export it to your desktop upload it to the forum  or send to chief support

    Here's what I did: Resize the terrain so all items are within or meeting the terrain perimeter. Nothing extending beyond. Check for elevation region overlaps. That took the build time down to 2 seconds.

    Another good tip for you: adjust your fill patterns used in plan view to solid fill wherever possible. If you need to see through them, adjust the transparency. Busy fill patterns in plan view slow Chief down as well.

    I tried your suggestion increasing terrain size that made 7 seconds quicker, did you get a massive file size increase ?

    I got your terrain build down to 30 sec buy setting terrain smoothing to Low and triangle count to low, elevation regions turn of interpolate tangent to edge.

    There something funky about this file as after I got it going faster the file size jumped  from 5meg to 120 meg

     

    Other problems not related to build time, the biggest elevation region is overlapping retaining wall  and another retaining wall bottom height has been manually dragged open structure tab and reset default bottom height

  7. Use the rainbow tool on the correct material see what its name is then open walls that are wrong go to wall types tab on the top layer or outside layer change to the correct material that you seen with the rainbow tool

     

    Also i notice that you were trying to get a pattern from a texture you should not need to do that with bricks a standard grid pattern is best to use

  8. Try pressing the ctrl for windows or cmd on  mac when moving the shelves and bath spout , and when selecting  mirrors hit the tab key it will select things below it keep hit it until what you want is selected
