/me breathes sigh of relief at possibility that I don't have leprosy after all. :)

only the torus brush? youch / eek / wow !

I thought of running some sort of mapmaking competition based on the Extruder... not a 'use only the ext.' thing -- that's just sadism, but maybe making a simple base myself as a starting point. But apart from hosting it on my site there wouldn't be much by way of a prize :hmm:

the inventor of C++ is a tarquin fan... seriously????

Hm. vertex editing the torus could be tricky, unless it's something simple like lifting one half up to make a sort of bagel-with-filling. and then you'd need to set TubeAlignToside to true (or whatever I called it :) )
All the polys are 4-sided so you have to be very careful not to break planes. If they were all split into triangles there wouldn't be a problem.
I *think* the torus has the ability to triangulate its faces built in, but the option isn't accessible. I'll look into it.
There will be an update of the main pack... eventually :)
I should maybe start a thread for people to suggest tweaks to the builders.

Nuclear fuzz thing,I caught you making a reference to Psychiatry.!
NOw i'm almost sure you and nebulous person are only one person.

BTW I suspect I have a third identity
(I=Nebulous Person,in case you didn't follow the conversation).
Am I wrong?
