Three ideas:
1. If you can hide all polygons / sceneries / objects, you should also be able to turn off colorizing - it would be useful for texturing when polygon is colorized already, but it's too dark to see the details.
2. Refresh sceneries. What does it do? Dunno. But it should re-scan scenery-gfx folder for new sceneries - restarting PW each time I make new scenery is stupid.
3. All arrange functions: send to back / send backward / bring to front / bring forward should be hotkeyed. I hate ordering sceneries by clicking and clicking and clicking on menu. On hotkey I would just push some keys and wait until I'll see expected effect.

I'm dying to use this but I get a strange message..
Failed to load control 'CommonDialog' from comdlg32.ocx.
Your version of comdlg32.ocv may be outdated. Make sure you
are using the version of the control that was provided with your
application.


I've put comdlg32.ocx in the System32 folder, I have registered, made sure
it was the one I had with the application. I haven't made sure that it is
"up to date," but I have downloaded several others with the same version number.
What should I do? ; ;

Did some googling and I found this link - http://www.silacom-tech.com/kbuilder-m27c/index.php?page=index_v2&id=11&c=2

Try following the instructions and it might be able to fix the error.

Here's a suggestion:

If you select a part of the texture in the texture box, then you select one or more polygons and do ctrl+f ( or make a new button for 'Align texture' ), it would automatically place that texture part on the selected polygons. Hope it's understandable ^^'

Polyworks needs its own forum ^^

Suggestions:

Map density calculator
Figures out how dense the map is.
Code: [Select]
(p_vol/(compile_width*compile_height))*100p_vol: The volume that the polys take up. Tis may be difficult to calculate, due to overlapping polys :\
compile_width and compile_height: The width and height of the compiled map area.

Map detail calculator
Determines the detail of the map:
Code: [Select]
(p_count*1000)/p_volp_count: Number of polygons in the map.


MOVING POLYGONSN!!!!!!!!!1
Just kidding.

This and Anna's mapping tutorial has helped my mapping alot.

I was reluctant to use this since it looks advanced but now I'm "one with it."

@Demonic: would be a useful feature, but I can't think of a good way to do this.

@Mistercharles: I already added map dimensions to the properties window, I'll see about calculating the area that the polygons take up. I'm not sure if I want to put density and map detail, they are easy to calculate anyway if you have all the information.




Here's a preview of an experimental PolyWorks feature I've been playing with:

Very nice. I really hope you impliment this, it'll allow for some much more rugged maps.

I have a few suggestions to add to the list...

Scenery filtering - A little search bar where only the scenery with the word you've typed in is a part of the name.

"Only used scenery" button - Scenery list only shows sceneries used in the current map (will come in useful when creating a zip and also when you are only using a small amount of scenery types in your map).

All the best.

I'm assuming the experimental feature averages the colors of the vertices, and then colors the entire polygon that color? Nice. Oh wait, nevermind.

Regarding my idea, are you saying that poly volume and compile width/height will be displayed in future versions?
