Not really now answer to your questions but...
if you want make Fur vegetal you can try this one (it's exactly the same philosophy) during the time that I understand your questions! ;)

Q 1 version 2.1.0

Q 2 Mac users are not always so happy than PC Users ;)
I can't answer for that, I am a PC User :)

Q 3 Same than Q2 ;)

Q 4 Some years that I don't use it! :oops: Some cool interface Now! :thumb:
But really no problem! :fro:
I have made absolutly no regulates! :ugeek:
Select a surface then use the Green Dialog Box
With this Dialog Box you can use only Component by Component!



Q 5 Sorry no problem for me with the Crowd dialog box! :mrgreen:
I believe that you must use a PC! ;)

Hello Pilou.

Thank you for the link to TreeMaker, I have been using it a lot lately, but I wanted to be able to populate a small terrain with my own models (or simple billboard components)... what I was actually trying to do, was make specific weeds for an overgrown area... TreeMaker is very good, but the template models are too... "pretty" for weeds and I do not really know how to add my own models to the list (if that is even possible)... so I decided to try Fur which sort seems to work like Component Spray, but with more random distribution.

I used the other link you provided and downloaded V 2.1.0... I see now that I skimmed past the the "Download Here" link at the top and went straight to the bottom where the updates usually used to be... I keep doing that with older plugins, I forget that the links to the newer versions at the PluginStore are often at the top now, so thank you again for the link.


EDITED OUT PREVIOUS TEXT AS I NOW HAVE THE PLUGIN RUNNING




I think that the dialog boxes are different for Windows and Mac.
Once again, thank you Pilou for the links and info!

That was just for the screen shot, I took pictures of each menu and put them together in one image using photoshop... I have tried checking the boxes, there is no reaction from the plugin when you click "Make Crowd"

Okay... Something was amiss... I turned of the computer and restarted it and now it works... it makes crowds.

I think I know what the problem was... sometimes my computer acts a little wonky after using certain programs at the same time... so to get it back to normal, I'll shut it down for a few minutes... which I just did... now I see the tool palette buttons too, which were not showing up in the preferences...

Also one other thing... I guess I failed to purge the document I was testing fur with... leaf1 was a component I made to test the crowd feature, but I deleted it and made a pink box instead... which did not appear a choice...

The weird thing is leaf1 one was actually the file name, not the component name... (TestLeaf)... I don't know why it chose the file name over the component name... So when I saw "leaf1" I thought it was some built in component...
Still, if it had populated the surface I would have seen it was my component.

Some of the controls are slightly different for Mac (still no slider controls, but no big deal), but the crowd feature DOES work...

So thanks again Pilou, it does now work more or less exactly as you showed in your "How to" images (which I thank you very much for going through the trouble of making!).

Have a great day!

I will have lots of fun using this, thanks Pilou!

The billboards I made looked terrible when rendered in Poser, but the PNGs look okay in SketchUp... So, just in case anyone wants to use them for something in SketchUp, here are the smaller versions I used in SU... They are very simple... it was just for a test, so sorry if they look a little cartoon-like.

Hi McGyver, I have installed the last version 2.1.0 on Mac and the fur-web dialogues are showing correctly the sliders.

For me the Crowd never has worked on Mac, it creates always a group with little triangles.

Hi

First thank you very much for this very nice plugin!

I'm trying to create a grassfield using the Make Crowd function, but I find the density to low.

What I do -
I select the face
Set the density to max (20)
Select my grass component

This generate some instances, but not enough to give the impression of a grassfield.

Is there a way to rise the density or do I do something wrong?

Thanks :-)

There is no Max! Or in any case more than 20! ;)
Seems numbers of object = Density * 10 so be careful!

Has anyone experienced the generation of the items heavily in some portions and light in others, following hard diagonal lines dividing the place? I cannot seem to apply the script evenly in most of my spaces. I am using 2014.

following hard diagonal lines dividing the place?

If they are visible : Cleanup by Thomthom : Merge Coplanar Faces
If they are invible, Enable Hidden Geometry : Selection Toys by Thomthom
Select Soft or Smooth Edges then kill them

Hi,haikardi.
Sorry for my reply too late.

I guess the problem is "MaxNumber(/Face)".
Please set high value to "MaxNumber(/Face)".
"MaxNumber(/Face)" is limit for creating too much fur.

Thanks!

I love this plugin, really helps me to distribute grass proxy's. I do have one request, sometimes even the lowest values are too much, I'd really like to distribute (make crowd) with .5, .2 values.

Oh!v a distribution brush would also be most welcome.

Please, I ask again if it would be possible to go lower than 0.1 in crowd place setting, I love this plugin but on a large terrain I seem to have no control as lowest setting is still too much.

Yes. It does work on SketchUp 2014. The first thing you need to do to get help making it work is give specific and useful information. How did you install it? Which version? What are you expecting to see that you aren't seeing?
