Hurt and Heal (+/-) 5: Best PdN Plugin-Alpha Mask Wins!

Recommended Posts

Drumroll please! Welcome to Hurt and Heal 5!

The Hurt and Heal Game

Here's the goal:

Make your favorite choice win, and make your least favorite choice lose.

Winning and Losing:

Winning: The first choice that reaches 100 (or the last choice standing) wins, ending the game.

Losing: As each choice reaches 0, it is removed from the list. It has lost.

In the event that only two choices remain, both scores are reset to 50 and the "shootout" begins!

What you do:

"Hurt" a choice by subtracting 10 from its score.

"Heal" a choice by adding 5 to its score.

(You must do both of these in each turn)

Rules:

You may only "Hurt and Heal" once each day.

Once a choice reaches 0, it is gone. You may not re-add it to the list. Let it die an honorable death. :-)

The posted scoreboard comprises the only options. You may not add new options. Discussion will be held before each edition of (+/-); discuss choices there.

If someone "beats you" in posting, change your scoreboard to reflect the change. Be courteous.

Keep it on topic. You can talk briefly about how you chose what to hurt and heal, but take any off topic threads to .

Also, if you have any ideas for the theme for the next Hurt & Heal, post them underneath your scoreboard. That'll make prep for the next one easier.

Special Rule for 5.0: Plugin authors are free to play, but barred from healing their own plugin until it is one of two that remain.

Everyone clear? All right!

The theme for this Hurt and Heal Game is...

Best Paint.NET plugin!

Here's the starting scoreboard, presented in alphabetical order and assembled after lots of thought and careful consideration by all of you (special thanks to BoltBait for providing and alphabetizing the list). Check the Plugins section of the forum to download each one!

Sorry BB, but I'm all for Alpha Masking. Feather just gives people an excuse to be lazy...

I still love you, though. :wink:

Hard choice, I use them all so much... but Shape3D feels more revolutionary to me (primarily because I've been enjoying the depth and customization of it)

'Tis'nt a hard choice (Alpha mask is the awesomeness :D ) Sorry Pyro, but I don't use Curves+ very much (it is a dandy plugin though)

My favorite plugin is Reflection, by Boltbait, but it isn't on the list.

Thanks! When I put the list together I had a hard time choosing which of my plugins to include.

It was between Feather, Wet Floor Reflection, and Steganography ;)

In the end, I choose Feather because I felt that it was the most asked for and used of my plugins.

(BTW, I've been thinking of updating my feather plugin... stay tuned...)

Anyway, I think my Ink Sketch effect is my best plugin. However, it is now built-in to Paint.NET and thus ineligible for inclusion in this list.

Yep, If it wasn't for you, we would have swarms of new users flooding the General Discussion forum with things like "How do ya get a web2.0 effect???????" :D

Sorry, ownage! No offense. :-)

I think Tanel's work is very good. Shadow/Highlight is very versatile.

I don't really use Shape 3d that much, it ends up dominating whatever you make. Curves+ I use loads :D so it's getting healed.

Hurt: C H/S. It is a neat effect, but I've used it what... once in the last 6 months?

Heal: S/H R. Truly great in use and in result.

This is tough. >< So many good choices... I'll stick with S3D (primarily because of how often I use it)

It's like what Polar Inversion is to 75% of new users for me.

Heal: Feather, I'm lazy and its useful. :D

Hurt: Shape3D. Its a great effect but as it has been said it dominates a piece.

Dents is a lovely if overused plugin.

I say again: S/HR is phenomenal.
