I am using a wall sweep to add the hardiplank siding to the exterior wall. The siding has to overlap where there is 7" of the siding exposed and overlaps by 1-1/4". I have had to put the siding (wall sweep) in one at a time from the top of the wall to the bottom. I used reference places set 7" apart to make sure the siding overlaps properly. This is very tedious and cumbersome. Can anyone suggest a more efficient way to add the siding to the wall?

most people are probably going to tell you to do it as a hatch pattern.

You should be able to add the sweeps right into the wall style.  This would apply the sweeps to any wall of that style in your project without having to place them individually on each wall.  I have tried this with wall bases, and it seems to work fine.  Let me know if this works, and any potential problems.  I have been trying to think of a way to show siding in rendered views, and this seems like a great idea.  Didn't think of it until your post.

Not sure if this is the best way to ask you a question or not. I was searching through these forums and ran across your question regarding simulating hardi-plank siding and was wondering what you did for a solution. I'm trying to do the same thing and cant figure out how to do it. If you get this, any help you can offer would be greatly appretiated. You can e-mail me directly if you wish:
