Tool to quickly populate the model with components (trees, people, rocks, grass...) based on support shapes, options and constraints. 12 different shapes (ways of dropping components): point, line, triangle, square, rectangle, circle, spray, and more. PDF doc included.

What's new in v1.4.2:
- bug fix with destination layer using the PointTool and SelectedSurfacesTool,
- bug fix of random rotation not working using the SelectedSurfacesTool,
- bug fix of altitude constraints when using the "Selected Faces" shape,
- new "shape" to drop components at vertices of edges or curves,
- new "shape" to evenly drop components at divisions of edges,
- suppressed "OnMouseLeave" function that caused the tools to exit when the mouse left the graphic window.
- dropping components on other components with the point shape is now possible,
- localization files available (German, Danish, French, Portuguese, English, and Spanish as the base set)
- settings to customize the dialog box behaviour,
- experimental directional spray tool, so you can populate walls with ivy for inst ance.

Je viens de faire des tests sur la version SketchUp 8.0.4811. Les paramètres apparaissent mais il n'y aucun résultats. Cela marche qu'avec une forme de point sur une surface plane. Impossible de déplacer les curseurs, ils restent bloqués. Pouvez-vous m'aider ?

I had the same problem. Now it works perfect.
You have to delete all previous versions:
Try to look for ALL the plugin components, in C:Program Files (x86)GoogleGoogle SketchUp 8Plugins. Delete them all, they should have names easily remarkable (compospray etc). There is also a folder in there. Delete all and extract the plugin archive in there. should work now.
