      Thanks Nate - The Marketplace version has shown up, but when I click install "Slot to add plugin to: 4.18" it does nothing. I think it may be launcher bug. I tried re-launching the launcher.

      Can you test and see if yours works?

        OptimisticMonkey , yes, the 4.18 version shown up but currently can't be downloaded, it seems the actual file not been staged in the server correctly. I have sent mail to marketplace support, will post update when I got reply. Thanks for bring it to my attention!

            same here and same problem with all plugins... it seems that launcher can't simply install plugin in 4.18 folder...

              Sorry folks, I tried to update all my plugins to 4.18 the same day 4.18 released, but so far only 2 of them (Prefab Tool and Instance Tool) been updated successfully. Both Pivot Tool and Mesh Tool have their status been updated to 4.18 but can't be downloaded from launcher yet.

              I've been contacting Unreal Marketplace support and trying to re-update the plugins at the same time. I wish those issues could be addressed soon and sorry again for the downloading problems. I'll update the status here when I got reply from marketplace support.

                Instace Tool 1.2.5 update is now live on both Unreal Marketplace and itch.io.

                Code:
                1.2.5
                ------------------
                * Add option to frame viewport to indicate actor or instance selection
                * Fix potential editor crash when convert/add instances in 4.17.2
                There's a 4.17.2 specific bug fix for potential editor crash when converting/adding instances. The cause of the bug is that in 4.17.2 render data of instances static mesh component might not be initialized properly (it's fixed in 4.18).

                You might also noticed that in this update, there's a red/green frame over viewport to indicate whether you've selected an actor or an instance.



                Actor selected.



                Instance selected



                The option can be turn on or off in Options panel. Also the frame color can be customized there.

                  Loving the tool but I am having difficulties getting my LODs to work. Does anyone have a few simple steps or know a tutorial for HISM and LODs? So far I've found scale needs to remain at 1 (in level and in blueprint) and the material needs the "Dither LOD Transition" checked.

                  My draw calls are way down but my triangles are now 4x because LODs are not working.

                      Could you explain how to use it with a spline?

                        Hi DonFrag, the workflow of using spline to spawn instances would be:



                        1. Convert the mesh you want to instancing on spline to HISM or ISM




                        2. Select an actor with spline component



                        3. Click "Spawn Instances" button to spawn instances on selected spline points.

                          thank you!
                          any chances of have something llike splinne mesh component. i know that you cannot bend ISM, but i believed that spline would locate every mesh side by side by extending the spline
