    Multi-Surface Select

    I have had a look on Flay but can't find this.
    Don't know if it is even out there.

    I am working on converting some models and they have a myriad of surface names. In order to tidy them up and layer them better I would love to have an LScript which allowed me to enter a wildcard surface name to select and deselect polys, rather than selecting lots of individual surfaces.

    e.g. Enter Win* would say select window1, window2..etc

    Has anyone seen anything like this?
    There are a couple of select plugins, but they are usually based on no. of points or normal direction / vmap.

    I don't think this one will allow for wild cards...but it will let you select by surface...hope this helps...

    Not really as it only picks up 1 surface.
    If I had time, I maight be able to come up with something myself but I'm somewhat rushed at the moment

    A lot hinges on if you can handle wildcards and then parse the surfaces. It may be that LScript isn't up to the task and I've not looked at the SDK / writing C plugins.

    Anyone out there bored and fancy a challenge? Please????

    Oh yeah - see now that's what I'm talkin about!
    I knew it would probably be a simple script, but just didn't have time to re-learn Lscript in order to build it.

    Thanks, plus of course, thanks to the author!
