We’ve just released a new Judge Characters Premium Content Pack that is available for download in the Antics Content Warehouse.
These characters will be great for any court room scenes. You might want to use them in legal reconstructions or even sentencing outlaws that your Police Characters have brought to justice!
If there’s any content packs that you would like to see in future then please let us know over in the Content Wishlist area of the forum.

If you’ve upgraded to Antics V3.1 then you will be getting familiar with the new native Google SketchUp and Google 3D Warehouse import features. If you haven’t already, have a look at the new Google SketchUp Tips & Tricks section in the forum.
Many of you will want to take advantage of the ability to import .skp content from the massive Google 3d Warehouse (available from File > Google 3d Warehouse in Antics), but keep in mind that most of these tricks are relevant to models imported from the .3ds and .fbx format, as well.
Some examples of crossover tricks:

Enabling imported sets for intelligent character interaction
Configuring imported surfaces for pick up/put down functionality
Edit the pivot of imported props to ensure proper movement

Using the direct tool to give imported models a path
