Wall Worm 5.2.8 Released
« on: October 23, 2022, 11:18:51 am »
Version 5.2.8 released on 10-22-2022

   * Material Utilities: Added an option to rename (non-bitmap) textures based on their usage in a material.
   
   * WWMT: Added new Hull Material ID setting that will force the exporter to convert faces using that Material ID into a collision hull. Useful for complex models made in ForestPack or RailClone. Available only in the modify tab of a WWMT Helper.
   
   * CorVex Spline: Added name list that will allow the corvex spline to derive itself from any corvex nodes with names matching the patterns. Useful to make a CorVex Spline from a CorVex in a XRef Scene. BETA Feature not full tested!!
   
   * CorVex Spline: Fixed CorVexSpline missing a segment on CorVex nodes in block mode.
   
   * CorVex Spline: Added new settings to make a vertical spline on the middle line of each side of a CorVex.
   
   * CorVex: Fixed MAXScript error that could happen in fringe cases related to invalid material ID values.
   
   * PropLine: Added new option to randomly flip objects 180 degrees in the Z Axis.
   
   * PropLine: Fixed the max values of Translation and Rotation values not being enabled when randomization is turned on.

   * VMF Exporter: Fixed the compile batch script to work with map names that were previously not working because of incorrectly escaped characters.

   * VMF Exporter: Fixed exporter not launching game if also PAKing assets.

   * VMF Exporter: Added new option to export hidden cordons as active. This setting is not available in the exporter UI, but can be accessed via MAXScript with rootnode.exportHiddenCordons. It is a boolean. Existing scenes will be set to false to keep past conventions. New scenes will default to true.
   
   * VMT Importer: Updated VMT Importer to add a Missing Texture (missing.tga) to texture slots that point to textures that cannot be found. This fixes crashes when using Autodesk Vault that was having issues with bitmaps pointing to missing file paths.
   
   * Delete Faces Modifier: Fixed button not working in the Delete Faces custom attribute to remove rollout from UI.
