Rock Generator Plugin for C4D by mp5gosu Rock Generator Plugin for C4D by mp5gosu
Update: Version 0.92 is now available.
You'll find it here: RockGEN092

Changes in 0.92:
This update is primarily a bugfix-update! There are some new functions though:

- should not crash anymore
- enhanced displacement handling (now shape scale controls the displacement height)
- fixed UV-mapping behaviour
- added direct displacement control
- rearranged in tabs, separating mesh, materials and distribution
- added "real" random seed, increases workflow
- added renderer switch (AR/Vray)
- added two more material presets (Asteroid/Jagged Rock)
- added distribution routines (won't work right now. see readme, why.)

Hey guys... I found it really hard to create realistic looking rocks in Cinema 4D. People who also tried to create such, know what I'm talking about. Now here is the solution. :)

Quote of the included readme.txt:

RockGen is a free Plugin for Maxons Cinema 4D. With this plugin you can easily create random rocks.
The process of creation is very in intuitive, controlled by a few parameters. Also, RockGen creates
Materials automatically. Those contain one of three included textures in different channels
for creating a maximum of realism.

Have Fun ;)

Just a quick info: the version downloadable on my website has been made compatible with R15. For those who had problems getting it to work: It was my fault, I accidentally linked to an outdated version. :stupidme:

I thought I'd try to get this to work on R15 for the fun of it. It turned out to be an easy fix. On line 129 of the RockGen092.cof file there is a tag "TPhong", but since R12 these tags are case sensitive. So to fix it, just change the tag to "Tphong" (change the capital P to lower case p) and it works just fine. I only have R15 to test it on, but I wouldn't be surprised if this fix makes it work for R12-R15.

Actually I have to apologise for not providing the correct source. I have uploaded the fix some years ago but never corrected the link. Did that now. Thanks for bumping me into this. :)
