Text Generator v1.2

msu355 has yet to upload a media file


This script will auto spawn 3d text.

enter image description here

enter image description here

To install

place script here: SourceFilmmaker\game\workshop\scripts\sfm\animset

How to use

  1. apply the "text generator" rig to any model in the scene.

  2. select which workshop font you want.

  3. type in your text then click spawn text, thats it, the group of letters will be spawned in front of the main camera .

  4. to use the two slider controls; it's best to use them after defaulting all the letters first.


you need at least 1 of the 4 workshops below in order for this script to work

Letters and Numbers (by Netherium)

Splatoon - 3D Letter Models

TF Letters

Spyro 1 GUI Letters

Also the Splatoon pack is the only one that has uppercase letters, but no digits.

in a future update I'll add a way to manually import different workshop models

feel free to modify the script for your own use if you find any bugs or have suggestions message me in the comments below.

Oh, I See. Sadly It dosen't update on SFM, because of that Stupid Engine overflow thing that every SFM Makers have, Glad You would post the Updated Version Here. But what Makes it Different? Just Updated where It makes Upper case & Lower Case letter?

I just add a scale option so you can re-scale the text models all at once when you spawn them. before people would need to add scale control to each model and manually scale each one.

Amazing how many people are like "omg this is amazing!" I bet none of them ever tried this shit out, because it's just fucking bugged and shit. If you don't want the default gigantic fontsize and the ridiculous spacing, you are fucked! I can't beliebe it's 2019 and it's still not possible to SIMPLY add text to sfm. The only choices you have are "shitty tiny font stuck infront of camera" and "equally shitty fonts, where the letters are bigger than the character models, and any change fucks the letters up"
