Hi here is a plugin I have made from a request by Daaark.
What it does is assign vertex colours between two selectable colours by relative height(Axis selectable).
Here is link

Hope you enjoy. Thanks for the idea Daark.

This is how it works, incase you missed it in my thread:



That's an extreme, obvious example, but it works great for shading terrain and other objects.

Thanks all. Yes on bit of a roll, just haven't been inclinded to model lately.
Even with the great compo going on Shocked Keep trying but get nowhere. Plugin writing has caught my attention for moment.

Not sure if this is a DeleD bug, or one with the plugin, but sometimes an object will revert to the system texture while being shaded. Mad

and sometimes it destroys my geometry, but that might be because it's a bit complicated? (some of the house's and the main island in my compo entry get screwed up if I do this plugin on it.)

It shouldn't make a difference. There is no such thing as a 'complicated model', it's just a list of vertices and faces, and they only need to be looped through twice, to get the position ranges, and then to color them.

@Daaark
Jan-Paul said similar about UvMapping plugin if File not saved once before use. I can not get this to happen repeatably. Actually I have only got this to happen a couple of times. Still trying to find out why. I suggest saving file when first opened or when material editor used this seems to stop happening.
@Elementrix That is very strange as this plugin should not touch geometry at all only tests vertex positions and changes vertex colours. could you send me one of the meshes that gets destroyed I dont want this to happen!!

Done some more testing and sometimes Deled sends a material Id of -1 for polys this is cause of problem. Seems to be mainly when use material editor so will report this as a bug.
Still can't make it destroy geometry though.

What it does is: I select an object, I do this plugin on it and it moves some vertices incredibly far to the left and the right.

I'm now at school but I will send you an object on which this occurs when I get home.

@Elementrix
Thanks that will be great. Very Happy
This is a strange fault as I don't change values intentionaly, must be something in the conversion to my format and back again.

Hi I have found that texture changing fault, is from using material editor. When you have used and just ask for selected objects the changed texture is not sent correctly. Saving file does fix this. But I have also found that if I request textures this forces Deled to update internally. Then sends correct when ask for selected objects.
I have made this plugin now using this workround and cannot get to go wrong.
I have also found that plugin also destroys vertex alpha's if set this fixed to. Just waiting for Elementrix to post file that explodes Geomertry so I can see and fix this problem as I cannot replicate.
Also will Update and post other plugins that just ask for selected objects to stop this on them to.
If anyone found textures go wrong when haven't used material editor give me a shout and please try to say what you did and when it went wrong.

That would be too weird, as you just get the objects you see in the editor, serialized to XML. So if you see things correctly on your screen, you should really get the correct data. I'll put this on our list of things to check. If it's true, congrats on spotting the Meanest Bug of the Month (TM). If not, kudos for the workaround anyway! Very Happy
