Thanks alot, It worls great. Really usefull. And not only for grass. Great for placing out any objects. Thanks alot.

One question: Why does it only work with a Nurbs-ground? I would really like it to work on polys... I always model with polys...

thanks guys ! thanks guys !

reasons... why not (yet) with polys

1) i'd like to make it also work with polys, but i have not found yet the MEL command that gives out a randomized vector (position) from points all over the poly-surfaces, and not only the cv. in nurbs, i can randomize a UV value and output the world coordinates of this point, based on the selected nurbs surface.

2) nurbs are also cool to generate shaped topography

i'll have an other look in the MEL reference... k?

any wishes so far ? what could be changed or added ?

* * *

of course it would be great to write it in C++ for the API, which would greatly speed it up, but i'm not familiar with C++

can someone help ?

maybe Dr. Merman is just doing this at the moment ... ?

I have some wishes.

1. Add the generated meshes into a new group...

2. Add more parameters:
rotate x
rotate y
rotate z

3. And when they are created, they must be moved to the right position. Why is that?

to wish 1) i tried that but failed at the first attempt. i'll try again

to wish 2) okay, i can do this.

to question 3) i don't quite understand what You mean...

the object is selected, duplicated and then, this new selection is moved to a place on the nurbs surface. this just randomizes objects to different places... this is the idea behind the script... :) well, i don't get it... :?

Hehe. Ok, Ill try to explain nr 3: When my meshes have been created, they all end up at the wrong position. So I have to create a group, and move them to fit the ground mesh... Like your screenshot..

btw, still the same request over and over but, rou[…]

So far my only option was to ungroup (my group wa[…]
