The CrowdMaster team is proud to present v1.3.2!

This release brings the ability to overlap actions, and control shapekeys on your agents. In addition, many bugs were fixed during our work. You can view the full release notes below.

Please note that the output node default has been changed from rz to Position Y so your node graphs may need updating.

As usual:

Thank you to the CrowdMaster team (Peter Noble, John Roper) as well as Christian Campos Angulo, Andrew Buttery and Patrick Crawford.

The CrowdMaster team is proud to present v1.2.0!

Featured in this release is the Defer Geometry system and new input node:

Version 1.2.0 brings many new features as well as speedups to existing ones. The new defer geometry tool allows you to simulate your agents using just the armatures and then add the geometry back for each one after the simulation is finished. Because all that is being viewed are the armatures, the simulation can run up to 90% times faster in some situations than it previously did. In addition, the preferences have been updates, and the node trees have gained more tools to help to precisely align your agents. On top of this, there have been many additions and updates to the documentation. You can view the full release notes below.

The CrowdMaster team is proud to present v1.1.0!

Featured in this release is the Agent Generation Nodes system:

agen_nodes

This new setup brings a unique approach for procedural object placement to Blender. Using nodes, the user can create setups to generate almost any placement of objects that he or she can think of. The node tree is based on a template system. Each template describes the creation of a single agent using the geometry template nodes or describes how to place other templates. Used together, multiple templates can create armies.
