The preferences are split up into three sections, General Settings, Addon Update Settings, and Debug Options.
This section holds the general settings for the addon.
Use Custom Icons¶
CrowdMaster comes with a custom icon set. This option allows you to choose if you want to use it or use Blender’s built-in icons.
Start Animation Automatically¶
When this is enabled, running the simulation starts the animation playing. Also, stopping the simulation stops the animation. When the option is disabled, the user has to manually start and stop the animation after hitting the start and stop simulation buttons respectively.
Ask To Save¶
When this is enabled, if the file that you are working in has not been saved, CrowdMaster will give you a
This file must be saved! message when you press the Simulate button.
Use Node Color¶
If this is enabled, while you are simulating, the nodes will change color to display their output value.
Show Debug Options¶
This enables a number of debugging features and the simulator and addon updater are set into verbose mode.
Addon Update Settings¶
This section holds the settings for the addon updater. These are talked about in detail in Updating.
These settings are only for developers. If you do not have
Show Debug Options turned on, you will see an warning message and the option to turn
Show Debug Options on.
If you enable
Show Debug Options, a few tools will become available to you.
Run Short Tests¶
This tool tests certain parts of the code to quickly check for errors.
