Historically LGEO considers 2582 as a "slope" part, with a grainy surface.
Apparently I didn't consider it as a "slope" part.

The question is : has that part a grainy surface or not?
I can't answer as I don't own it.


After a few search on the web, I would say that this part is not grainy.
Only a pattern version is.

If someone can confirm this, that would be great.

Apparently, it is not that simple. For example this one has a pattern and is not grainy (I own this part!), but it is transparent.
And this one is not transparent and is also not grainy.

Thanks Nils for the info.

So from what I undestand, only some patterns are grainy, and obviously, the unpatternd part is not, so I would say that my version is correct.

So you have two solutions for you render:
- use my LGEO.xml file, use my package, recreate the .pov file from ldview
- use my package, keep your existing L3P generated .pov file, remove all lg_2582_slope related stuff from your .pov file (if you can give me the entire .pov file I can do it for you).

BTW, are you still using L3P or are you only trying to rerender an old file?

FYI

Part `lg_4070` asks for `lego_logo_text`, but this object is only created if the quality level is higher than 2. I think there needs to be a check for quality level inside the part.

[edit]

Part `lg_4083` does this too


RE: New Parts for LGEO Library - Michael Horvath - 2018-02-09

I have a bunch of old scenes made with L3P.

I think the bigger problem WRT the sloped part needs to be solved by LDraw parts authors. IMO there should be one digital part per real part, including the graininess, but ignoring differences in color.


RE: New Parts for LGEO Library - Michael Horvath - 2018-02-09

FYI

Three parts expect there to be a `LG_INNER_CORNER_SPACE` variable, but it seems not to be defined anywhere.

The parts are:

lg_2959.inc
lg_33291.inc
lg_91049.inc


RE: New Parts for LGEO Library - Michael Horvath - 2018-02-09

FYI

Two parts expect there to be the objects called `lg_tech_knob_join` and `lg_tech_knob_join_clear`, but they are not defined anywhere. These parts are:

lg_33291.inc
lg_macro.inc

Thanks for that!

As I never render without Logo, I've never notice that.

The Package has been updated, you shouldn't get the problem anymore.

lg_2959.inc
lg_33291.inc
lg_91049.inc

As my libraby conflicts with Owen's one, those parts are giving problems.

I have reworked them, so the problem shouldn't be there anymore.
They will be "officially release" on my next update, but they are already in the package, so you can download it.

33291 is OK (see my previous post).

But there are still 20 parts (made by Owen) that use the "lg_macro.inc" file, so they will give problems until I rework them. Hopefully on next update.

Thanks so much for your hard work!
