Plan-Shape

PLAN SHAPE

a 3D Shape Generator for the Quake & Half-Life Map Format

Heads up: Since I released Map2Curve there isn’t really a reason why anyone should use PlanShape anymore. PlanShape still has some superior ways of setting up textures, like wrapping/stretching them around a generated shape, but it always lacked the ability to import and process previously created Goldsource map files.

Plan Shape is my first real C++ creation. It serves as a generator for 3-dimensional shapes like an arch, a torus or a sphere. To do so, it uses circles, which are based on a specific mapping method. This will lead to the amazing fact, that all faces of those circular shapes are >planar<! PlanShape can export these generated shapes as MAP or OBJ files.

PS is no professionally made software, there is no GUI! I basically learned C++ by creating it. You can use it via the command console or you drag and drop template files onto the EXE. Both will produce the same results. Template files are a faster way, whereas using the console might be easier (or even more confusing, depends).

For more details and informations about the tool, please take a look at the documentation.
