Maxscript : HSDS Modifier on faces

Hi all,
I'm new here and I apologize for my english.
I'm trying to make a script using the HSDS Modifier on a list of faces. I've tried scripts like this one :

o = $
hsds_mod = HSDS()
addModifier o hsds_mod
max modify mode
select o
subObjectLevel = 3
setFaceSelection o hsds_mod #(6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
modPanel.addModToSelection (HSDS())

But the setFaceSelection method does not seem to work on the HSDS modifier.

Is there a way to apply the HSDS modifier on a specified list of faces?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, there is no exposed way to set face selection for the HSDS modifier that I know of. I would recommend look at another tool/approach to do what you want.

Ok thank you very much. It's too bad since I really find usefull the hierarchical subdivision that the HSDS modifier provides. I will try with another subdivision but the results won't be as good as expected.
Anyway, thanks for the answer!
