Fixes all around. Fixed exporting brick grid causing an error, calculating UV coordinates for faces with no brick texture, and every single definition token being broken. On the flip-side now all definition tokens are actually case-insensitive.

Definition tokens are not case insensitive - I had to rename all my "bounds name" into "BOUNDS name" since blender would report the error that "BOUNDS is not in list"

It also does not support multiple word names - you should either clarify this in the documentation or make it support multiple-word brick names

I will fix both issues as soon as I can.

Major updates to the README. Fixed a lot of things I broke by not testing enough:
  • Wrong BLB collision rotation if forward axis was not +Y in the export settings.
  • Inverted/broken smooth shading: normals were written to the vertices in reversed order.
  • Broken vertex colors: colors were written to the vertices in reversed order.
  • Being able to modify grayed out properties that were supposed to be disabled in the export panel.
  • Invalid decimal operation exception when attempting to calculate brick bounds but there were no visible meshes to calculate the axis-aligned bounding box from.
  • Outdated link to Nick Smith's GitHub profile in the README.
  • Typos in the README.
  • Exception when attempting to export a brick and the following conditions were met:
    • Bricks to Export property was Multiple.
    • Bricks Defined by property was Layers.
    • Export Bricks in property was Scene.
    • The scene contained a layer with no objects.
  • Exception when Export Scale property was not 100%.

Sorry it took me so long but serious thanks to you Conan for pointing out several issues.

Currently on the roadmap for the next months:
  • More improvements to the README, including a short guide on actually using the exporter.
  • Exporting DTS collision models utilizing Port's DTS exporter. I've had it working at some point but after some major changes the feature broke.


Sorry for the large bump, but when I attempt to install the zip file, it won't let me save it to a directory of my choice or save at all. I can only "open" it which doesn't do anything either. Can anyone help me?

So you're having issues downloading the ZIP file? Try a different browser? Try right clicking the link and selecting "Save Link As..." or similar?
