All payments will be used to finance the development of Primstar-2 and its documentation.
  • installer : Jass on windows is distributed as a pre configured package containing blender, python and the Jass scripts. The installer does the whole job for you.
  • scripts : If your operating system can run blender, you can use the distributed sources to install primstar/jass
  • bundle : We have repacked blender with a working configuration. just unpack it and go.
  • addon : Primstar-2 is designed to be plugged into Blender-2.5 as a Blender addon Module.
  • (1) : Primstar-2 is under development. We have not yet documented all expected features here. Note that Features labeled with a Question mark (?) probably will be replaced by more suitable functions. Features labeled with a gray checkmark have either been scheduled for implementation or are currently under construction.
  • (2) : Can be installed separately, sources freely available
  • (3) : The library of meshes contains the library of sculpts. Note: Right now there is not much in it. More and better content will come soon. The Jass-Library of meshes might be distributed independently from Primstar-2 but as a separate and independent addon module.
  • (4) : prices are very approximate and only meant as guideline. The Linden$ prices are exact.
  • (5) : With the Early Adopters Program we give a discount of L$1000
  • (6) : You can import your objects, then use Object -> Sculptify to convert your imported Object to a Sculpty. This only works if the imported Object IS already a sculpted Prim created wih another tool and just transported to Blender. Note: Ensure that your object has got the seams marked or mark the seams by hand before you try sculptify.

    I’m presently working with Blender 2.59 Does Primstar -2-dev work with this version of blender?


    • Gaia Clary says:

      yes, it does work with all versions of blender starting from 2.58. However more recent versions of Blender tend to have important bug fixes which also influence the behaviour of Primstar-2, so we generally recommend to go with the newest released Blender-version

  2. contagious republic says:

    I need to know if the free primstar can EXPORT a 8×512 pixels sculptie correctly. I am aware of the old import problem for sculptcrafter sculpt maps, I want to know about EXPORTING only.

    Does it work?
