Hi, this is my tiny (and yet herculean) contribution to this great community.
it is a toolbar that integrates some architectural and landforming scripts accessible from icons.
find it under view > toolbars > archiland
hope you find it useful - the archive contains files like delauney2.rb, parametric.rb and sketchup.rb which you may already have, but here they are included just in case.
now, most scripts are from various masters which kindly granted the permission for my small tweaks.
to Didier, TIG, Carlos Fale and to all the others, go all the thanks: Thanks!
updated jan 05 (fixed roof icons)

this is really cool,
thank you very much
Just won the 'Who is Least Competitive Championships' where trying to win will make you lose. Trying to lose makes you win which makes you lose. Not trying at all makes you lose which makes you win which makes you lose.
yes.. at least there is hope for all...!
Note: Facer found some icons misplaced - will post update soon
Thanks. As I have not used all these yet, this will be a good way to get started. This could be the beginning of a whole architect suite. On the Mac I find that sometimes the icons stay selected after I have moved on to another tool, so many icons can be selected (darkened) at once. Is this OK?
Dear CadFather,just have a query regarding Archiland Plugin, i did copy it in the plugins but when i open my sketchup this is what appears
Error Loading File cd_architect.rb
C:/Program Files/Google/Google SketchUp 6/Plugins/sketchup.rb:99: undefined method `get_i18n_datfile_info' for Sketchup:ModuleError Loading File Sketchup.rb
undefined method `get_i18n_datfile_info' for Sketchup:Module, any help on this?, THANKS A LOT!
try replacing this
Many thanks, good ideia,
I have a problem. Installed and appeared all the items on the menu but Plugins to open the window of the icons they do not appear. The folder - Archiland Toolbar are in the plugins folder and the 4 files. RB were copied to the plugins folder of Sketchup. It could help me.

There are tutorials on how to use the plugins...
I do not understand the use of Spiral Stairs, Simplify Contours, Make Contourns, Triangulate points, Pontify and Terrain Reshaper...

i'm working on a new set of toolbars and also planning some tutorials - it's just a matter of squeezing it all in 24 hour cycles
but in short they are easy to start with - try and see
draw a jagged curve with the freehand tool - simplify contours will reduce the jagginess (and segmentation)
draw a cone or any 3d shape (not cube), group it - make contours will create new contour lines around the 3d shape
on the same shape (explode the group) run pointify - the result is c-points on every vertex (corner)
trangulate points does the reverse - delete the 3d shape, select all c-points - run the script
you will also find many tutorials in pdf on Didier Bur's site
