Raul this is a plug-in I was giving a lot of love to in the previous beta. Any chance of an update?

lasal 11/01/2012 - 00:05

It would be cool to see that in the addons.

guest 26/03/2012 - 20:06

Could we have spreadable targets?

Raul 29/03/2012 - 13:37

update coming soon...

sebl 29/03/2012 - 14:59

cool, could we have a (perhaps even faster) 2D version?

robe 29/03/2012 - 15:09

+1 for 2d version

jannis 10/05/2012 - 12:43

very cool. is it possible to spread the target somehow?

colorsound 05/09/2012 - 10:27

hi great plug thanks ¡¡

i have similar question than jannis is is posible to have multiples targets ?

colorsound 05/09/2012 - 11:29

hello i found a little workaround but loose some features , if you enable the landing and put the spread of targets into the LandingXYZ then you have diferent groups of creatures following diferent targets.

mrboni 01/07/2014 - 19:00

is the source for this available anywhere?

JT Lee 02/04/2015 - 12:55

excellent work!

mediadog 20/11/2017 - 23:57

Does anyone know how to use this so the flocks are spreadable, not just the targets? I want to have multiple distinct flocks, each with their own parameters, but spreading the input parameters seems to be ignored after the first slice. Cool plugin though!
