Text Generator v1.2 Now with scale controls

This script will auto spawn 3d text.

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, that's it, the group of letters will be spawned at the root 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 al 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 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 if more are uploaded

changes in update 1.2

-each letter model now spawns with its own scale slider
-a scale helper animset is created at spawn. with it you will be able to scale all letters at once and change the spacing
-cleaned up how the scene hierarchy is made
-added some error checking
-defaulting the models will return them to their original spawn pos, instead of the map origin

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