Feature suggestion - modification for Panel object

New releases and general discussions.

Hi all! basically a feature suggestion for CC? Is it madness? Hopefully not, still plenty of steam in the old boy.

So, doing some tests with walls and such several options come up - tiled backdrop works well for bricks and such, but doesn't let you change the angle and also has no support for sides. While the panel has all that, but stretches everything into oblivion...

Enter a little suggestion: Why not let the panel object (or an evil twin) have the option of tiling the inner bit? I'm not sure if it would involve adding extra polygons or it's as easy as setting the UV to repeat for the middle bit. Either way, I made a little diagram to explain why this would be very nice indeed:



And as you see if it were possible to include an "intelligent tiling" option that lets you just place these things while trying to preserve the most detail it would really help with designing levels and, possibly keeping the object counts down (unless it's horribly inefficient, which I doubt).

Either way, I hope a developer at least gives the idea some thought and/or some feedback on feasibility.

Thank you.

Looks like it'd need a toggle for tiling certain edges as well, as your image there doesn't stretch the top and bottom ones.Jayjay2011-09-04 23:30:58

Well yeah, I mean, it would do all the same things as the current one, just repeat instead of stretch. hence the coloured "cross" to show what would be affected. Only the corners never change.
