  • Stone: to create simple stones and peebles.
  • Spaghetti: spaghetties, noodles, wires and other long things maker.
  • Scatterer [updated]: a generic but powerful object scattering tool.

applied to him up to cloning is added (Randomizer and Scatterer);

Praises again goes to

Praises again goes to 3DZver!

Just when I have started to work on Max 2009. You update the script, this time even with new features!
Thank you very much for this 3dZver!

(You forgot to change the About-page. It still says 1.5 for Max 5.1. I also think you should put in "Modified by 3DZver" somewhere on that page.)

Best regards
Jonas

Much thanks 3dZver! I had tried (very unsucessfully) to update the .net myself a few times, but my meager maxscript skills just broke it more than it already was... :)

This really should be an 'official' update, I'd like to see this posted here on scriptspot as a v1.6 or something. I don't see why the autor would take exception to that.

Thanks again for the Christmas present!

Thanks for greetings,

Thanks for greetings, Pewi.
I too congratulate all happy New Year!

Yes. I too have found out this bug, but I have recompile only the interface and have a little corrected algorithm of interaction with it. The source code by means of which operations of transformation with all cloned objects calculate has remained former.
Therefore this bug most likely existed and earlier. But I have corrected this now. A new update of a script it is possible download in the same place (see my message above).
