Think I may have found a bug. Anything I put the animation component on causes the export feature to hang. max 2010.

There have been a couple of bug reports since the last build. I just wanted you all to know that I have seen them, and they're on my TODO list. I want to spend some time working on other bits of Plasma than the plugin for a while - switching around helps keep it from getting tedious and frustrating. When I start putting cycles into the plugin again, the issues posted here will be at the top of my list.

Manpower is really limited - it's mostly Hoikas and myself who have done Plugin work, and he's been super busy with school this term. That leaves me, and as I said I want to avoid getting too frustrated working on the plugin. I wish there were more of us and we could address these issues quickly and still have people to work on the rest of Plasma, but unfortunately that's just not in the cards right now.

Do keep posting bugs as you find them, and I'll add them to the list.

this isnt exactly a bug, But one thing I did notice about the plugins for Max 7 is the settings for Friction and bounce on terrain and proxy terrain seemed to have been disabled, also Ex vehicle does not seem to work either, any chance on getting these working in the new plugins somewhere down the line

Vehicles do not exist in the MOULa codebase, they were heavily dependent on Havok.

In general, any component that starts with Ex is ignored at export (like the inventory items, vehicles, and ladder components).

Not "in general" the only ones that don't export right or at all are the vehicle and inventory components. (Ex)Ladder Component works fine. It's in fact how you make ladders in Uru. And the oneshots in the plugin are labeled (ex)OneShot. There's also a few physic components (ex)CameraBlocker and (ex)InvisibleBlocker that export. Though some parts of these seem to be broken as they export the same settings regardless if you change them, for a few of their settings. Others settings on them work fine.

I can confirm what GPNMilano posted.

If I remember correctly (and I might be wrong), Friction and Bounce can only be changed on Simple Physics objects (IE Kickables), for obvious reasons. All though I could have sworn that friction could be changed for terrain and it would work...but it's been a long time since I tried messing with it.

I tried using the Friction setting on terrain trying to make a corkscrew slide unfortunately I could not get it to work, also with ladders using the tutorials available I made a ladder in Max and it still vanished although it still worked so I had to use a separate collider. So I dont think its a conflict between Blender and max.

did not wanna bump up a zombie thread so
Edit to add

I found out friction bounce and mass on the simples component of coarse effect the simples, friction and bounce on the terrain and proxy terrain although a bit difficult to chance also seem to effect only the simples, however the walkable component produces a proxy terrain and the friction and bounce effect the avatar. it was kinda interesting having a floor of ice and walls of rubber something worth trying if you get board and wanna ice skate in a rubber room :D :lol: :roll:

I certainly appreciate everything that you have done so far. Its your time, spend it on what you want to do with the engine. Plugin development might be slow, but at least we're at the point of something happening.

I tested the plugin for Max 2012. I noticed that the component for "Water" is missing in the component manager.

I was using a test age that was made in Max 7. When I open it in Max 12 I get this error:

But anyway, after reassigning the textures I could successfully export (leaving out the waveset).

I keep getting the same error messages about plasma not being a valid win32 application with the 2012 plugin. Nothing anyone suggested earlier in the thread has worked for me.
