Resurface - Convert surfaces to studs and more

It was a random bug, fixed automatically. When I installed it the inventory api was facing degraded performance, that might be something related.

Thank you for making this Plugin, I wonder what’s the main reason why Roblox removed this Classic/Old Feature?

Update (0.0.3): @dukzae thanks for the bug report. Possibly due to loading order*, it was previously impossible to assign a keyboard shortcut to Resurface without the shortcut being cleared at the end of a Studio session.

v0.0.3 introduces a new PluginAction to enable assignment of a custom keyboard shortcut to the tool, which will persist across sessions. You can assign custom keyboard shortcuts via the File → Advanced → Customize Shortcuts... menu, and binding a shortcut the the “Surface Tool (Action)” action.

Update via the Plugin Manager to access this feature.


*Edit: I have been informed that not being able to assign keyboard shortcuts to plugin buttons is a Studio bug.

i think you should be able to add additional mechanics like using the plugin on a model which surfaces every part in the model to make it more easier to redecorate and provide more usefulness than what surface tool had in mind

do you think it should follow the same controls as the existing studio dragger tools, where models are selected by default and ALT allows diving into individual parts?

yes also i think the combination controls for shift and ctrl is too uncomfortable

I’ll see what I can do about customisation and toggles. thanks for the feedback :+1:

I love it, my man! This is a useful plugin for devs and for people who just like messing around in studio and making their games old style!

Yeah I think a useful setting for this would to let users be able to use multiple selected parts to change to the surface material on them at the same time, some even all sides.

:+1: Added to the to-do list! Thanks for the feedback.

I’m planning an update to this at some point to include a better UI (most likely an on-screen toolbar while active), so will look into ways of incorporating these new features without bloating the plugin with too many options.

Hello, this plugin is super helpful so I don’t have to use the toolbox to find bricks with surface items on them. I ran into an issue, it doesn’t seem to work on a union. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or it just hasn’t been an added feature but if it could work on unions, that would be a life saver.

sorry for the late response. sadly, I don’t think it’s possible to add surfaces to a union, due to how they work. when get around to giving surface tool a makeover, I’ll look into possible options for unions

This plugin came in handy after they deleted these surfaces; I’ve been using it ever since; I truly enjoy creating things in the older style of Roblox, and this plugin is helping to keep me sane while doing so.

tl;dr
You’re awesome, and I love your product. Continue to provide fantastic updates and work diligently!

suggestion
It would also be fantastic if this could be transformed into a texture tool at a later date, once support for these surfaces has been officially removed.

thanks so much! that’s so nice to hear, and I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

already in the plugin. if surfaces get removed, it’ll automatically fall back to textures :relaxed:

Sort of a big request, but it’d be nice to have a second identical widget which allows you to add, remove, and rename custom textures (and maybe being able to save properties like transparency, color, or width and height). The workflow with this tool is already astounding, and I’d love to see some extra functionality with one of my favorite plugins

Version 0.1.0

Get on Roblox|0x36

This is a minor update to Resurface (formerly Surface Tool) which addresses a few issues and implements a couple of changes.

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where deactivating the plugin would not revert to the Studio selection tool.
  • Pressing ESC now deactivates the plugin.

Changed

In preparation for the next major update to Resurface, a few things are happening:

  • The plugin button and action now properly refer to Surface Tool as “Resurface”. In the next update the “(Surface Tool)” suffix will be removed.
  • Updated plugin icon Toolbar Icon@3x which is a blue variant of the final product icon for the next major edition of Resurface. This icon also multi-res and supports higher resolution displays, meaning it won’t appear pixelated anymore.

Thanks for your continued support! In the meantime, please enjoy this sneak preview of the next version of Resurface:

Every time I playtest with the plugin enabled with the new update I get this error in the output.

apologies for the issue. this should be fixed in the latest patch available now via the plugin manager
