Editing a Project created with a template

In this tutorial, you will learn how to edit a Project created with a template while getting to know the basics of YAHAHA Studio.


Before you get started, create a YAHAHA account and sign in to YAHAHA Desktop.

Creating a new Poject with the Suntail Village Base template

Creating a new Project and select the Suntail Village Base template to work on. Or choose this template on the Templates tab, then the Project will be created automatically.


Exploring the scene

You can explore the scene by pressing W, S, A, D, Q, E. To familiarize yourself with the template, you can explore the scene in Play mode by choosing the Play icon at the right top corner.


Modifying the scene

  1. Get a bridge from Asset Library.

    To run across rivers in the scene, you need a bridge from Asset Library, where you can find various bridges. Hold your point over a bridge your like, and click View in scene to try it in 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.


  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.


    Switch to the Rotate tool to 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.


  4. Duplicate the bridge.

    Select the bridge by right clicking the bridge from the scene or in Explorer and choose Duplicate. Or you can duplicate it using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+D in Windows or Command+D in Mac. You can put the duplicated bridges wherever you like.
