erikals probably we discussed about Silo years ago.. My humble suggestion is for you to actually buy SILO... they are great fellows.. I love their software for organic modelling... and - i dont think NT can add these tools with current core.....

bit reluctant to buy yet another package, but i'll think about it... :]

NT can add the tools with current core i think, i've seen similarities in other tools, pretty sure it should work.

of these, soft selection would be my number 1 wish...

We actually do have the tweak tool in Modeler... it would be handy if it had some additional parameters though such as being able to expand how many surrounding verts are "tweaked' with edits, and perhaps improved UI display with highlighting.

LW Tweak has plenty of room for extension: how about "if SHIFT is held down, polygons rotate around their Normal" ?

Or something to do with rotation: right now it only seems half done. Something along the lines of ROVE, but with Tweak's autoselect of elements.

Hmmm, add ROVE's rotation to Tweak, or TWEAK's auto-selection to ROVE? A conundrum.

Chazriker's idea of a falloff would be very nice, but without the clumsy Clumsy CLUMSY falloff selection procedure we suffer with now. It would make TWEAK like a better version of DRAGNET.

Or, y'know, enhance DRAGNET with Tweak's auto-selection. As a matter of fact, auto-selection coding is complete-- adding it to many tools should be a goal.
