v2.5 – April 23, 2023

-Added a new module Decal Tool made with Geometry Nodes to add images as decals to your creations.
-Added 350 texture decals
-Added “Active Material Properties” on the Material Tab of Sanctus Library Panel showing the content of Blender’s material properties tab to access procedural parameters of the material in a faster and simpler way. (Some materials look a bit more confusing because they use multiple shader nodes but it will be cleaned up in future updates. A few materials using very specific functions like requiring to disconnect a node or add an image texture will still need to be accessed from the Shader Node Editor.
-New options to choose if you will be prompted when a material or asset is already present in the blend file where added to the preference options of the addon.

GN Tools

Array Path: Reworked with new nodes, works on multiple splines, aligns correctly curve twist.

Array on Path
Changed the way it works to make it more intuitive and user friendly. Before we had to assign the tool to the instance we wanted to follow a path, now you assign it to the curve you want to be followed by an object or collection of objects. This way you can duplicate the curve and move it to easily duplicate arrays still be able to change parameters individually.

Hey Aleksander, here I can't reply to you directly so it's not a good channel to discuss. Join the discord or contact me on twitter. Ofcourse you don't have to pay again, your orders in Blender market menu should contain Sanctus Library
