Issue with VoroFrag 2.5a

I have an issue when using this (v. 2.5a) using Max 2014. Basically I have a wall that I unwrapped. After the unwrap modifier, I add vorofrag. The standard mode works well; keeping my UVs intact and giving me the ability to adjust my inner faces mapping. However, the problem exists when I increase the "gap width" setting in that it does not create volume for my frags. This forces me to use "box mode". Now, I lost all my UVs and I don't have access to the inner face mapping parameters which I need. Interestingly, the "gap width" works well here; creating volume for my frags. Any thoughts?

Update 2.5a for 3ds Max 2015

- Compatible with 3ds Max 2015
- Minor optimizations

Note that this is not really a new version.
The minor optimizations only concern 3ds Max 2015.
A new version with new features will come later.

Thanks for your comment

I appreciate your comment and the referencing on your own blog.
This plugin is still developed, as well as two other projects that are in beta-test.

For some reason the 2.5 would not work with my 2013 32x. Other than that was no bother at all and works perfectly.

Update 2.5

From the change-log:
- Fragmentation enhanced on complex concave meshes
- Animated parameters work now as expected when the plug-in interface is unloaded
- After detaching the fragments, the normals are now preserved
- A new option allows to directly detach the fragments in a separate layer with a custom name
- An issue with the world coordinates and some imported objects is fixed
- When moving or animating an external objetct or particle system as "custom particle",
the plug-in is more responsive and now recompute correctly when the plug-in interface is unloaded
- The parameter changes on the rollouts "Detach params" and "System"
do not force the plug-in to recompute unnecessarily
- The pick button "pickPFlow" is now correctly exposed to maxscript and works as expected

Works Like a Charm

Works perfect my friend! Amazing product by the way, I've tried certain other fragmentation plugins for maya and after about 99 frags and an hour later it errored out. Popped in 3000 frags in this one and about 20 seconds later I'm good to go. Awesome product!
