because Line (ex9) is causing troubles from time to time, i tried to create a module that replaces the Line using only quads…
that was easy for 2d but, because of a missing points2vector (3d), i tried to make a little plugin.
i think it is working (surely for 2d-cases) but is far from elegant.
so, if you want, you may take a look and clarify some vectormath things
including plugin and module (8.2 kB)
plugin doesn’t seem necessary. but you should see the logic from the module.
what might be missing is a way to make sure the quad is always facing the camera. i recommend using a cylinder with 3 edges instead (don’t forget to vote).
if you want a really massive amount of lines, there are some nice 3d-lines in dottores pack, you just need to feed it the beginning and the end of the line in form of a dynamic texture.
