it got deleted by a freindly mac user.
Many MAC users have the habit of just dragging things out of a folder, as apposed to copy pasting far, all the file deletes boil down to this habit.

Certainly my fault, sorry for that. I didn't know !
I send back the file inside the folder. Sorry Paul.

no problem

been there - done that - know the feeling

I guess when Mac users see files in a remote folder - they automatically think drag drop is a copy.

v 1.3 video

ive uploaded a video showing the new tiling features in the random tile shader.

Please take a look here..

The video shows how I extract some simple tiles from a photo and later use them with the random tile shader to construct a tileable procedural surface shader,which won't look like its made of just a handful of tiles.It demonstrates how the shader can defeat the repetative nature of textures.

This is looking great! There's one small thing that I miss: shifting of odd and even rows. Or is it there but you didn't show it in the video?

there is an alternate offset value. set to 50% every other row is offset half a tile (bricking)

I will add some further options though, plenty more scope here.if anyone has any request, just let me know. if its not too mental, I can add in.

ok, I'm convinced!

I'll check it out. If I meet anything I think that could improve the shader, I'll let you know.

In my set up I created an option to set the amount of each tile used. But I guess this is less important, I must admit that I used this option only once. And in your shader it can be achieved by adding the same tile many times and the one that has to appear only now and then, just once.
