PLACE PEOPLE (Commercial script)




PLACE PEOPLE is a 3ds Max plugin written in MaxScript that allows the user to place characters created with the 3ds Max 'Populate Toolset' anywhere, following a 3D spline path, and be glued to any surface, in really few mouse clicks.

New version V-1.02:

- Now, walkers can be created walking towards an object (for example, a door), thanks to the new subrollout 'Face to Object'

- Walkers can be rotated in local coordsys (relative to their origin)

- Editing path affects characters position in real time

- Number of simulation frames can be changed in the rollout

- Bugs corrections for idle characters facing an object or rotated following a path

- Performance enhancement


Place Objects according to normal

This script will place objects according to the normal of the face you place them on.
You can add multiple objects in a list and let the script random pick one of those, or disable the random button and choose yourself.

Script features:

- Add multiple objects to a list and start placing them.
- Place them with the first click, then move your mouse to rotate the object and click again to confirm.
- Cancel placement at any time.
- Random select objects from the list.
- Add a Z-Offset to the objects.
- Place objects according to the normal they are placed on.

This is a script like autogrid. You can move, instance and copy objects all over the place! ShiftPress the button for options (move, instance, copy, lock rotation and lock scale)

How it works: select an object and press the button. click and drag (left-right = scale, top-down:rotation)

If you select multiple objects it will choose a random one.

The image above says all. :)

Places the pivot of the selected object/s in one of the red colored circle.

For Editable Poly object/s you can place the pivot in the center of selected vert/s. edge/s, face/s.

Click with LMB on one of the red circle will tread all selected objects as one and the pivots of all objects will be in the same place.

This script lets you paint objects (geometry, splines, lights, helpers, etc) onto a piece of geometry. Like for example, you can make 10 different rocks, and then paint them in a random fashion onto a terrain.

Make a plane with many segments, apply a nosie modifier to make it hilly. Create a sphere, a cylinder and a box. Run the UI version of the script. Select the plane, click the "Add Selection To Paint On List" Button. The plane is added to the list. Select the 3 other objects, click the "Add Selection To Paint With List" button. Those 3 objects get added to
