Light Delta v1.0

A Chisel plugin that allows you to add to the normal light intensity for a given light, without changing that light... vastly reducing the number of lights needed. (The demo map included shows 11 distinct lighting effects... and it uses exactly ONE light.) It only works on walls, and a wall can display only one value of the ambient delta field... but if you're building complicated levels, and have run into lighting limits... check this out.

Partial Move v1.0

A Chisel plugin that allows you to horizontally move everything within a specified rectangle of the map. (If you started building too far towards one edge, you can now pull it back.) This differs from the existing 'Better Move' Chisel effect in that it's not applied to the entire map, it's applied to only a subset (hence the name). Pretty slick...

Permutator v1.0

This is a Chisel plugin that allows you to set the permutation field of polygons, which specifies what certain poly types do. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Split Line v1.0

Building a map, and reailze you need to add another polygon to the side of an already-filled poly? Dang, you have to delete that filled one and rebuild it... WAIT! This Chisel plugin allows you to split that FILLED poly line! Way cool.

Staircaser v1.0

A Chisel plugin that allows you to auto-create staircases (finally reproducing the Script effect of Phforte 1.x!). Straightforward, simple - it does one thing, it does it right. Check the readme for minor caveats (mostly common-sense stuff).

SwapPolygons v1.0

A Chisel plugin that lets you swap any pair of polygons - very useful for bringing high-numbered polys down to the beginning, to make them easier to reach in the teleporter menu, for example.

Destroy Singularity v1.0

Another cool Chisel plugin - if you've created a map in Forge which has too many lines connected to a point, you'll find you can't delete the point without crashing Forge. If you don't have an older backup... you're in big trouble. This plugin gets you out of it.

Heartbeat

The closest anyone's ever come to a cutscene level. Pretty astounding, even given the limitations... play it to see what it's all about. (It's cool. Really cool.) The author gives permission to incorporate this into your scenario, and even offers to customize it for you. Amazing what he thinks of...

Stacked Walkways

A pretty neat demo of two walkways on top of each other. The technique uses scenery items to fake the look of the walkway, so you don't look like you're floating... it seems pretty clear that with a little bit of artistry, the proper scenery items could be created to make the upper walkway look nearly flawless. Also contains an intriguing extension of the author's untextured wall experiments.

Stacked Windows

A further advance of the techniques shown in "Untextured Walls". In this case, you can stack openings in a wall. A nice hack... and correctly done, nearly invisible to the player.
