I'm trying to create a city street on a slope. I haven't found any methods that allow for several different objects to follow the same path, so maybe a path isn't the right method (still quite new to blender).

Essentially, I just want to be able to control the height and z-rotation of several objects at once. Here's a manually-arranged example: enter image description here

Thanks very much!

You can definitely use a path.

  1. RMB RMB select the first house and add two constraints.
    • A Follow Path constraint. Choose the Curve object as the target. Then check Follow Curve and Fixed Position. The offset has to vary for each object, for the first object we will leave it at 0.0.
    • A Limit Rotation constraint. Check Limit X and Limit Y. This prevents objects from tilting sideways. We only need the Z rotation.
      constraint setup
  2. ⇧ ShiftRMB RMBSelect all other houses, lastly add the constrained object to the selection. Copy the constraints to all houses by going to Objects > Constraints > Copy Constraints to Selected Objects.
  3. Adjust the Offset value for each house. E.g. [0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1]
