Vasara is a Lua script and dedicated HUD for use in texturing maps in Aleph One. The HUD provides more explanation for new users compared to Visual Mode, and features a mouse-driven interface for choosing textures and options.
This version works with Marathon 2 (as long as you ignore the 4th landscape slot).
I've been using Vasara for a while now and I can say it's the best visual texturing system around. Anyone texturing maps should use this plugin, and should be able to master it's abilities pretty quickly thanks to the simplistic interface.
This intuitive plugin is almost BETTER than Forge Visual Mode. I really appreciate that the player stops falling if they are in the middle of aligning a texture!
I'm using this to build a new TC and it is a pleasure, possibly the least buggy of the entire suite of tools.
10 times better than Visual Mode in my opinion. A must have for mapmakers. Thank you for this.
I really like this plugin, but there's one prob. It's not compatible with Marathon 2. The plugin run smoothly only on Marathon Infinity.
That's why I just give 4 stars.
Excellent work, far more intuitive than VML, the mouse control is nice, and is a lot easier than holding down various keys in various obscure combinations.
The visuals are smooth and functional, and learning where everything is was a breeze
There is one bug that I have found though. When switching texture mode from "normal" to "fast vertical slide" the hud disappeared, though nothing else was affected (considering this is the first release I guess bugs are to be expected)
All in all, five stars
