The difficulties come from where I didn't expect them.
I have problems to reach the desired effect of the cloth dropping on the objects. I want it to almost wrap objects but it rather covers them like a firm carpet.
I played a lot with the material presets giving to the cloth different types of material ( for example silk, which most of all looked like a heavy carpet) I also tried changing the gravity (from 9.8 to even 50 or 500 :D ) But that still didn't gave the effect. I also used wind settings. that slightly improved the looks.
So in the end I tried to further shape the cloth using soft deformations. Even if it gives the better result.. still feel kinda bad.
And what about the UV's ? after deformation, isn't it going to exaggerate the texture I would apply?
