Bookscatter v0.5

Here is a script i started writing for a project i am working on.

Its in the early stages of development, but since it works ok in the tests i did  i decided to share it with you so i can get some feedback. Right now the script is encrypted but i will release it under GNU GPL license when i finish it.

Also keep in mind that the script does not contain or create any book 3d models or shelves/bookcases. It assumes you already have the book 3d models and you want to save time scattering them in shelves, bookcases etc..

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. So please save your work before trying it and report any issues so i can look into them when i have the time!

Version 0.5 out some of the changes in the image bellow.

version 0.5 additions

 

Additional Info: 

For the download link and installation guide visit my website from the link bellow.

Version Requirement:

Nah, i wouldnt use it for this, as its main atribute is that it puts the next object right next to the current one.

So you d probably end up with a row of buildings that are right next to each other.  If you use it though for something else than books and you get good results, id like to see it ;)
