Overlays to backgrounds

Hello everyone I need a little help does anyone know how to add more then one overlay to a background?

Hi!! To add more than one overlay to a background you could use something like this:
@ overlay OVERLAYNAME create
You could use this more than one time and be sure that right under this you put:
@ overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 1
Otherwise you overlay won’t show up. :blush: Hope this helps!!

You can add as many as you want, just put the word ‘with’ before the overlay name. :slight_smile:

As mentioned before, you can use either of those methods.

Just make sure when you add them using the: (e.g.)
&overlay BENCH create
&overlay TREE create
&overlay BIRD create

method, to always specify your opacity e.g.

&overlay BENCH create
&overlay BENCH opacity 1 in 0
&overlay TREE create
&overlay TREE opacity 1 in 0
&overlay BIRD create
&overlay BIRD opacity 1 in 0

Otherwise they wont show up in your script.
