To create a panel in Console Editor

  1. First create a dummy point or surface in the Console model located at the point where you would like the panel to be positioned in the console. It is usually best to copy and paste a dummy point that has already been placed in the console and rename that new dummy point so it is unique. This step needs to be done by the graphic artist in the 3D model.
  2. Then place that dummy point somewhere flush on the console where you want the panel to be attached.
  3. Once the above has been completed, you can go into the console editor and right click on the console and add a panel. The list of panels to create is built from looking at the dummy points list in the model. The panel is created as a 2D surface based on the pivot point and the normal of the subpart.
