mind explaining it? broken link;)

Well the link is broke because everyone is trying to get in there to get it.
Its like Point Clone Plus that comes with lightwave but about 10000Xbetter.
It carrys the weight maps with the cloned object and this is the first time I really cloned the UVs without a problem either.
You can use it to clone to points or polys in the background layer.
This is almost on the level of 'Steve Worley' type stuff as far as usefulness of a plugin.

Quote from the author:
"PointCloneExtra is an LScript version of the native LightWave plug-in called Point Clone Plus. Although it wasnt my original reason for creating this script, PointCloneExtra keeps weight maps intact, while, for some reason, Point Clone Plus does not.

PointCloneExtra is currently in its third revision and sports a couple of extra features."

I used points clone extra in my previous challenge(BoB). Yes, for feathers, check the links below.
Very usefull, although a bit to plump to work with to get the perfect results, for feathers anyway.
