Sculpt and paint is not a good market to approach right now, with competitors like ZBrush and Mudbox.

If you would like a really nice affordable solution that works very nice with LW, I suggest 3D Coat.

It costs you a good night on town.:D

EDIT: Without the hangover

Hi,

I own 3d Coat and Modo too.... but for painting "Enviroment" a kind of
Paint/Sculpt would be very useful in the same application, to paint dirt and stuff, make stuff damaged....

Photoshop? Gimp? Good old texturing?

no, would like to paint instances, construct, destruct right
in the application..... I agree, for sculpting a high detailed model, I can
take another app, but when i comes to change the enviroment, I'd like to be
more free..... I don't want all way mapping vertex maps , i.e. to influence density of clones and so on, paint them.....

that would be a modern new approach...

I dont understand tomtm. Are you talking about something like mayas paint effects? Cause thats a great way for painting 'things' in an enviornment. I think whatever CORE does not implement, in terms of features and tools, the community and 3rd party developers will do quickly with an open SDK and take care of any specialized tools.

yes, paint FX or paint geometry, but also paint colors or make deformations like Modo would be cool.
3rd party stuff is and was cool, without them, LW would be very "empty"...
But with all this stuff, 200$ here, 150$ there and with every update release there are missing some connects or features...
For a new start, I find there should be something like this implemented, because everything else is what others have since years and just LW
didn't have.

Integrated F-Prime like Preview
Integrated HD-Instancing Like Cloning (with animations)
Integrated Modo-Like Painting (maybe not so complex would be a start)
