Well yeah definitely true. :grin: :wink:

I found a curious issue with your Egg Object add-on. If I have no collections, or if I have multiple collections all with any other name other than “collection” the Egg Object add-on gives me the following error message.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.83\scripts\addons\debuk_egg_object.py”, line 140, in execute
col.objects.link(eggObj)
AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘objects’
location: < unknown location >:-1

I got this error in both the 1.0.1 and 1.1.0 versions, the only difference was the line number. In 1.0.1 the line was 128 and in 1.1.0 the line is 140.

It took me a bit of trial and error to figure out what was up. I thought it was an add-on or custom Start-up conflict so I loaded Blender’s “Factory Settings” and got the same error if there was no collection titled “collection”.

Thanks @dcbCreative for the info. Sorry, I didn’t finish to use the active collection yet, that somehow slipped through.

It’s already fixed in version 1.1.1 on github.

Eggcellent. Tested and Egg Object works equally well with my custom settings as it did with Blender’s “factory” ones. Thank you.

An egg object is a pun and potentially useful addition to Blenders object library.

Now, not to scramble any further eggs but if I can add one observation of the omelet you are cooking. It seems like a real missed opportunity to not label your ‘Essentials’ folder as ‘Eggsentials’. Even if you find yourself propagating the folder with additional objects the egg is still the eggnaugural one:-)

Hahahah, yes, thanks for that, that’s in fact am eggstremely good idea that I might roll out with the next release, I am just a bit frietened that people will get it wrong overeasily . :grimacing: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :upside_down_face:

But is the addon big-endian, or little-endian? :wink:

That’s dependent on the eggs higher bit. :grinning:
(Sorry terrible joke)

@lsscpp: :grin: The shape could have been a stand for sure, but no it’s not.
