Wall Worm 5.0.92 Released
« on: August 17, 2021, 11:45:02 pm »
Version 5.0.92 released on 8-17-2021

   * VMT Browser: Fixed very slow-loading VMT browser. Refactored VMT browser to open much faster. In local tests, the VMT browser went from several minutes to open down to 34 seconds.
   
   * VMT Browser: Updated VMT Browser to remember last selected image in a folder. When changing folders, current selection is reset unless a material was already selected in folder, in which case that material is selected automatically.
   
   * Plugins: Fixed snap icon previews not working during object creation for several scripted plugins in Wall Worm for 3ds Max 2019+. Note that the Arch primitive still doesn't fully support snap icons in Max 2019+ but this is due to a defect in 3ds Max 2019+ that requires a fix from Autodesk.
   
   * Startup: Updated startup scripts to properly record Wall Worm startup times that were previously thrown off if 3rd party plugins took a long time to load after Wall Worm.
   
   * ProPal: Fixed MAXScript error creating a ProPal object.
