Simple popnet vortexforce question Sept. 24, 2018, 1:28 p.m.

Thank you, I'll give it a shot.

Simple popnet vortexforce question Sept. 20, 2018, 3:27 p.m.

Apologies for what I'm sure is a ridiculously simple question - what's the best way to limit/kill the influence of the vortexforce_pop at it's centre? Eye of the storm-type stuff, where I'm making a tornado-type thing driven by a curve but I want to limit/quiet/kill the vortex influence towards the centre.

Thoughts?

@McNistor:

Your points are well taken. I enjoy and use other packages too, my “don’t keep history” context (which I imagine as a simple on/off button only available in SOPs) remark comes out of the recent polydraw conversation where the developers are already starting to provide that same functionality. Like I said in the other thread, I was a fan of the (long since depreciated) model SOP that did essentially the same thing - it was great for making fast progress in a sub-assembly that didn’t require a “history”. For starters I’d settle for a “delete history” or right-click-on-node option that locked the SOP and deleted all of the upstream nodes with one step (as opposed to locking and then manually deleting), like you’d suggested.

I’ll submit an RFE today.

EDIT: RFE submitted.
