    Very simple and good stuff for beginners! It's very important too.
    Nikhil, I know it's possible to connect with amazing Atom's script (or scripts) from "RE:*" serie. One of them (Re: Ticular) works with Billboards and make them "age honored" (they grows if tell simpler).

        Also if I'm not mistaking, it will be called Remesh.
