I think there is not an easy way to change this behaviour (it's hard coded in the API), but i'll look it.

You are right. Adaptive mode is not working well with the Transform operator. We'll check it.

two suggestions

1 - "OR" condition so it will be possible to add multiple spline IDs 


2 - "seed" for Randomize node in order to select from different random combinations

1.- I'm afraid would be problematic to define a multiple list here. I'll think if there is some alternative.

2.- Randomize node uses the seed defined in the "General" rollout, and each node generates its own random values. Do you need a local seed for some specific reason ?

1 - if possible to number of comma separated IDs like "1, 3, 5" it will be enough
2 - thanks - it works for me. could be useful if there are several arrays in railclone to have seed per array

1.- That would work, but to change the type of a parameter (from integer to string) may break the compatibility with existing styles (specially if the parameter was "exported").

2.- Yes, a local seed by Generator has sense. I add it to the wishlist.

1 - i understand... in order to keep compatibility with existing styles, maybe exported Limit Mat.ID could be used for this purpose

there is Flip feature in RC settings, but for some cases need to Mirror copy for specific segment.

could be this option added to the Mirror node?



thanks)

I'll take a look to it. Due to the instancing engine, there are certain restrictions about what operations can be done from an operator.

just two suggestion.

1. copy nodes with SHIFT+drag
2. hotkey for automatically align selected nodes
3. move children nodes by ALT+drag (instead ALT+LMB+drag)

I am not sure if these were suggested , but
1. It would be cool if wire will be connected automatically to a slot of a node by dragging it over node itself , not just on the small green circle , well at least on some obvious nodes - for example when you are connecting segment and randomize node , you drag it over node and it wires it.
2. Recently i found a bit boring to add about 20 segments of geometry :) Is there possibility to use ctrl+c in viewport and after that ctrl+v in StyleEditor to paste geometry as segments ?
Thanks for your great work !

3. i'm also missing hotkey to open StyleEditor of selected RC object
