CityGenerator v0.80601 for XSI 6.02 (32bit)

This new version needs no more installation step, just execute the citygenerator_interface.js from your XSI editor.
Take a look at the new video and some screenshots.

NOTE: after unit creation, remember to change the BMP file with a render fo your view. I'm working to make it automatically. Maybe on the next release.

Download from here.

Here there are others folders like Applications and Plugins.
Final folder for the installation has to be:
where "builder" contains all the CityGenerator files and folders

Finally, a downloadable version for XSI 6.02
This is a very rough version. So, sorry about any bugs ;)

City Generator (blobDetection + buildings_generator)

Finally, I mixed my two plugins to create this CityGenerator in XSI: by a blob detection on a map (plus an elevation map in b&w) it's possible to create the layout for the buildings and with my buildings_generator it's possible to create any kind of building using a library of "units" (a unit is the smaller part of a building) or creating from scratch.
Take a look at this video.

soon a downloadable version and a version also for Maya and 3dsmax.

blob detection in XSI with C++ and JScript - UPDATE


Ok, I changed the core of this plugin.
All the detection now is done with C++ (a custom command to detect blobs from an image) and the interface to use it is done in JScript in XSI.
Take a look at this video

this is the first step to locate buildings directly from a google map (blob detection, edge, some filter to correct and clean image, etc, etc) or just a simple motion capture into XSI or what ever you want with a plugin like this. :)

A tool to detect a color in an image directly into XSI with JScript.
I want to use this to locate buildings on a map (a googlemap maybe).
