[Plugin] Crysis plugin - dynamic toolbox

Postby fatihbarut » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:31 pm

Hi guys,
Using Delphi I developed a dynamic toolbox which may be useful for all sketchup users.
Here is the web site. I hope it makes your jobs easy as it does mine.

http://crysisplugin.weebly.com/

I would be happy to learn ideas about this project.

I followed your instructions but nothing appears for right click, except the usual context menu.

To try your plugin, I am using Sketchup 8 free version in Parallels on a Mac. Every other Windows program I use in Parallels works perfectly so I think that the problem lies with the plugin or something I am doing wrong.

I think there should be some more arrangments to use this plugin in Mac. Because this plugin uses an .exe file which should compile specially for Mac OS.
However I would be happy if some PC users recommend. Therefore I can differantiate whether this problem is a bug or is really Mac problem.

Nice, but shortcuts are faster and they don't cover model on screen.

I won't be so sure about that :)

Firstly it covers the model for seconds or miliseconds (depending your and your machines speed) then disappears.

Secondly, using 2 hands instead of one is much more tiring.

And finally sometimes after several hours of work I really need Independence from keyboard...
even you like, you used to use keyboard shourtcuts, I recommend you to try this one, but I don't take responsibility if you used to new one :)

Hi,
When double-clicking on the exe file, I got an error message: CrysisPlugin.exe is not an Win32 valid application.
(Tested on WinXP)
Is that only for Vista or Win7 ?

Providing an exe to install is a good idea but may have inconvenients...

I got this working now. The setup file left the file CrysisRigth.rb behind in the installation folder. I moved it manually to the Google plugins folder and everything worked.

I normally use keyboard shortcuts but there is no doubt your plugin is very fast and because I use a Space Navigator, I think with a little practice, I would be faster by using your plugin as then I could keep my left hand on the Space Navigator and my right hand on the mouse.

I think if you could customise what appears in your system it would be even more useful.

Do please port this to the Mac!

Dear chrisjk, firstly thanks for your effort.

When I have read your message I had already uploaded the new version of setup file (which does not remain the CrysisRight.rb file) and also changed the plugin from 64 bit to 32 bit please redownload the setup file. And change the CrysisPlugin.exe which is under " C:/Crysis Plugin " folder in your computer with the one you newly downloaded.

Thanks again for your attention.

I changed the version of the Crysis Plugin.exe from 64 bit to 32 bit. Please look at my previos message to learn how to change the 64 bit version (which you installed before) with 32 bit one (which you newly downloaded).

Me again,
Install went well this time, thanks for your efforts.
I'd really like to use this tool but lots of icons don't do anything: explode, make group, make component for instance.
As I'm using extensively these functionalities, this makes the toolbar almost unusable for me.
Note that I've succesfully imported the dat file you provide in the package(anyway, strange idea to create a 'c:\Crysis Plugin' folder outside the SketchUp folder ?)
Thanks for your efforts,

I had to. Otherwise windows account user settings would block the program. I experinced it in another computer.

for the other problems which are about not working buttons firstly don't worry, together we can find and solve the problem.

Now coould you open the CrysisPluginShurtcuts.dat file with notepad and then select all in that file copy and paste here please.

I tried to edit this by adding a couple of extra shortcuts but they do not appear in the circular palette.

One was a shortcut to a plugin, the other a shortcut to a Draw Menu item.

Is there a way to add extra spaces/icon on the palette?

Didier, those things you mention work fine for me.

In fact, if your sketchup is English, if you just import the CrysisPluginShortcuts.dat properly, it will do all thing for you in one shot.

However if your sketchup's language is different then English you should change your shortcuts manually as I explained it here
http://crysisplugin.weebly.com/problems ... tions.html

To make something clear, this shotcut problem is not because of me. This is because of these things.

1- There is no com object or .dll file for third party programs (Like I made with delphi) to send commands to sketchup via ruby script.

2- The documentation and/or rubby script commands (even for making group) is not enough. I tried not to use shortcuts but there weren't any ruby script command to do some actions.

Finally don't hesitate to contact me, I ll try do my best to help... This is what I can.

Thank you Mehmet

the way i'd like see it developing, is by giving the user the possibility to customize the contents..

many 'power users' rely almost exclusively on key-shortcuts for many tools.. so the chance to assign plugins (and icons) to the wheel would definitely make it a must-have. whether or not you may go down that route - great idea and implementation! :thumb:

thanks for encouraging comments.

and about the question, "can I use my shortcuts"

I have used the default shortcuts as much as possible. However I should have assigned new shotcuts.
Actually I explained the answer here more detailed.

Hi,
it took several months to make that plugin just the way it looks now :)
I think if I spent a couple of another months I may add something like you want :)
However it really needs a professional touch.

therefore I tried to inform Google to add this plugin as a new kind of future to next version (9.0 may be)

I am not sure I achieved that. But if you can, and if you want please inform Google to add this kind of future to their next generation.

I am wondering if anyone have speed problem with this plugin (pop up time). I am asking because I had made 64 bit version and saving it for these kind of problems.

I think it's a great start... a good idea. I think it should be shortened and not so busy, perhaps levels of tools instead of everything out at once. and perhaps the toolbar could be transparent so that one could still see the model behind.

good work. I'll be following.

insteresting. So you got the idea for this menu from the game Crysis uh? I think my first experience with radial menus in a game was Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos

I've been using this for a little while now and thought I should drop by and say I love it!! I do agree that it would be an improvement to be able to rearrange and customise the contents of the tool bar but even so it's a great interface and a pleasure to use!!

Thanks.

Yes, I might use it (if it were on Mac) for those tools I use sometimes, but not enough for a shortcut memorization. So I would not be interested in seeing the basic SU tools but some plugins only.

I also like Kris's idea on levels, or at least say 5 categories so that one expands at at time.
