Wow! Now I don’t have to see if I shaded it correctly and if I picked the right colors! :+1:

It won’t let me install it for some reason

This plugin is great, but I would use ChangeHistoryService:SetWaypoint() to allow your users to undo the coloring if they were not satisfied with it.

Maybe I can’t tell because of the GIF quality, but does it take the main color and just randomly shade the other parts with a slightly altered color to make it appear more natural?

Hi there, This is exactly how it works:

How it works
function ColorPart(part) --part is part of the model that will be colored

    local num = CustomRandom.Range(MinValue, MaxValue)  --num is number between refer to *1

    local color = Color3.new()  --creating new color

    color = Color3.new(math.clamp(color.R + part.Color.R + num, 0, 1), math.clamp(color.G + part.Color.G + num, 0, 1), math.clamp(color.B + part.Color.B + num, 0, 1)) -- Assign colors in that way: part color + number between MinValue and MaxValue and clampt it between 0, 1 to stop artefacts

    part.Color = color --Assign color to the part

end

This plugin doesn’t shade the parts randomly anymore with the default 0.05 and -0.05 settings. It just colors all the parts darker until it’s black.

I noticed the plugin doesn’t support if you have a model selected with more models inside it. I assumed it was using GetChildren() which is was so I went ahead and fixed that. I also revamped the UI which was originally designed for my other plugin

Original UI Design - Useless Sign Generator
This is the revamped version I made - AutoShade

But isn’t that just unnecessary extra work?

Its awesome! I’m wondering if you can share source code on GitHub. I would be really grateful.

To be honest its pointless I’m pretty sure it could be quite laggy if you are coloring bigger models.

Also, the UI scaling is strange. Sometimes is disappears when I use it. :flushed:

Well this was an issue from the very start, quick fix should be out this week, so
In meantime, you can try @SillyMeTimbers’s plugin based on mine, it doesn’t have problems with scaling, :slight_smile:
