Many new tools in this release 0.6.- Multilayer tools
These tools are not only Simutrans related, but address what IMHO is a serious flaw in Gimp, which lacks a way to operate on different layers simultaneously.Move multilayer
: giving an x and y offset it moves the selection in all chosen layers. Useful when realigning a multilayer image.Copy/Cut multilayer
and Paste multilayer
: copy/cuts and paste the selection in all chosen layers. Useful when you need to duplicate a tile based on several layers. Being based on layer names, pasting on a different image is restricted. These tools don't interact with normal copy/cut/paste functions.
All these tools accept a layers selection using a Regular Expressions field, so if you write ^01 you'll only copy (or move) from the layers which name starts with 01.- Isometric surface
You can transform any front view surface into an isometric wall (south/left or east/right) or floor (south-north direction at the moment).
Useful for textures or even objects like arches and so on. It doesn't have any interpolation or antialiasing, so the result is likely to need to be manually edited. It's inspired by these scripts by froGgy factory (http://registry.gimp.org/node/25043
) but the code was written independently.- Other updates
Switch colors can now use the current foreground/background colors instead of the two arbitrarily picked ones.
Set grid tool now supports Pak160 as well (for AEO's PakBox) and resizes all image sized layers as well as the canvas.
Menu was rearranged, but still it's not the final one.- Future goals
The huge Special Colors Helper tool will likely be split in more specialized tools with easier UI and enhaced performance.
I'm glad to receive any extension request for this tools collection.
or in the first post (updated).
