Modifying the scene

    To run across rivers in the scene, you need a bridge from Asset Library, where you can find various bridges. Choose one that you like and add it to your scene.

  2. Place the bridge over the river appropriately. Select the bridge in Explorer or the scene and take the bridge to the river using the Grab tool. place-the-bridge-over-the-river-appropriately

  3. Adjust the bridge to suit the river. The bridge may be too small or big to match the river, so you need to adjust it by using the Move, Rotate and Scale tools. Before you start, press F to focus on the bridge, which makes your adjustment easier.
    Switch to the Move tool to put the bridge over the river. Compared to the Grab tool, the Move tool allows you to move the bridge precisely. You can try to press WASDQE to change the camera view. move-the-bridge-appropriately Switch to the Rotate tool to rotate the bridge appropriately. rotate-the-bridge-appropriately Switch to the Scale tool to scale the bridge. Tips: You can get an overall scale by using the small ball in the center of scale tool. scale-the-bridge-appropriately
