Intentionally posting here because this tool was created for 3D artists.



Devjit requested that we should have some new features in the Checker Map Toolbox including being able to rotate the checker map. Check out the release notes below for all the hotfixes. Don't forget to click the help button in the tool for detailed descriptions of each feature.


NEW FEATURES IN THIS RELEASE:
-Spin left and right buttons have been added that rotate the checker map by 45 degrees left or right

-Spin buttons work even if the checker map is turned off so you can now rotate any textures applied to your model non-destructively. Rotation is done through the place2D node so your UVs in the UV Editor don't change

-Plus and minus buttons now work even if the checker map is turned off so you can now tile any textures applied to your model non-destructively, this can also be handy for previewing tiling texture patterns. Tiling is done through the place2D node so your UVs in the UV Editor don't change

-Reduced size of toolbox so it takes up less screen space

-Fixed a bug where turning on map2 and then using the built in procedural checker map styles would toggle to map2 instead of map1

-If checker1.png is not found in the correct folder the tool will now detect this and automatically create the procedural checker style 1 to prevent confusion

-The checker map folder has been moved and the file is now named checker1.png, the find button will open the new folder location and the new folder name is more visually descriptive. Other tools will be updated in the future to follow this new folder name
PC c:\m341_temp\checker1.png
Mac /Users/Shared/m341_temp/checker1.png

-The help file has been updated with all the new features and is easier to read and formatted better
