Hello,
I’m a new user of Grome and I start writing plugin’s.
I have a question about limitations. Is there possibility to write a plugin which act like a brush tool.
I saw that utility plugins are blocking, and in trigger plugins I found only event like “before saving” or “deleted”.
Is it possible to have a direct feedback of user event on the ground?
Regards

Hi,

We can add a special trigger when a built-in brush is applied to terrain (for example: BeginBrush and EndBrush events) but this will work only on already existent brushes. The SDK is limited so you cannot create your own tools (these tools can be created as part of customization program with our team).

Regards,
Adrian L.

Oh and forgot to tell you, we do plan to add the possibility in the future for the user to construct its own brushes from predefined blocks of operators. You can then simply define a new brush by linking, for example, the elevation and color painter modifiers, so when you elevate terrain surface you also paint a texture. And this system being done, then it is a small step to allow the user to include its own operations (defined by a special plugin type or script) per data when applying a brush. But this is a feature planned for a build relatively far in the future so I cannot give you a certain release date.

Regards,
Adrian

Ok, for now I will not consider use this feature. My initial question was to be sure of the exact limitations of grome plugins and help me to use them at the best.
