I made a slight little change on the plugin.
The clear action was clearing the vertex list and its canvas but the texture wasn't updated.
Now it works as expected (:

@rexrainbow @yann Data being stored in JSON format, we don't see anything that would make this fail on CocoonJS. Also, unless it's doing "software-rendering" by drawing pixels manually one by one to the canvas, it should also get quite a nice speed boost from our rendering system :)

@ludei thanks for the info (:
And yeah as far as drawing goes, I use the canvas context fill/stroke javascript functions and in webgl mode I copy the texture to the webgl context.

If you can add physics to the vertices then you could make soft body dynamics like in the game Gish.

This looks pretty cool, but do you think it's possible to fill the polygon with a sprite which would then get 'stretched' up nicely?

@Ethan
yeah I dunno how hard it would be, and to me it would make more sense to be a behavior on top of this plugin than a feature inside the plugin.
And also remember that drawing polygons is expensive. By looking at the "you shouldn't do that" 3D demo where there's like 30 polygons it's already quite slow (:.


@jasper
Heheheheheh asking for new features are you? :D
I was thinking about that. I left that aside since I didn't need it and I wanted to make it work nicely without worrying about textures (tiling/not tiling/... etc).
But we'll see if I can do something about it. I'm starting to get the hang of C2's SDK.
Don't expect it too soon though, but if you see that in one month I still didn't try you are allowed to ask again :D

This looks awesome! I suppose it could be used to "fake" dynamic collision polygons. :) Thanks!

@basspenguin
Yeah in theory, but I have yet to see a concrete application of "dynamic collision" you can't achieve with a few sprites.

Cool, that will be definitively useful.

Here's just a feature suggestion: draw curved surfaces by interpolating between polygon vertices, e.g. cubic curves. I think technically it should be something like subdividing a polygon into curved surface.
