At the moment only translation (ie. the X, Y, Z offset) is supported. From my limited testing, the host rotation seems to be applied to the individual scatter elements (ie. it is applied to the mesh being scattered rather than the scatter transforms as a whole), so changing this behavior may not be simple. Also - from what I could see, the ArchiCAD API is only allowing the access of the Up axis rotations, so you can get the spin angle of an object (and in theory a bunch of scatter transform) but I don't think you can get the vertical rotation (perhaps this is accessed via another method - I'm not sure). So in summary, I have implemented what I could with a day's effort, but implementing vertical rotations, would be a much bigger and more complex change, which I would be resistant to doing given there are other ways to do it (PhantomScatter, or simply rotate the Mesh and re-generate the scatter transform).Probably I am doing something wrong, but when I use a GS car object as a proxy host (this allows rotation vertically or horizontally), and change the vertical rotation of the object using object parameters, the scatter stays horizontal. Is this intended? It would be useful to rotate scatters in any direction.
I haven't coded anything specific to the surface overrides - and didn't test it with this feature - so I will be interested to hear how you go. The main complication was obtaining the materials for the ArchiCAD geometry. So be on alert for missing materials, etc.Is there anything we specifically need to be aware of with it, for example with respect to surface over ride settings etc?
Garquitectos, Archicad 20? How could you work with Octane Plugin in ArchiCAD 20? Did I miss something?
Following is the plugin installers for AC20. This is experimental - so pls do not use on production scenes (or make a backup first). There were many changes required to the plugin to get it to work with AC20, so expect some issues.

I'm sorry, but the installer builder I use only compiles to .EXE's, and not .MSI files. Regarding the plugin settings - these are contained in User\AppData\Local, so will not following you when you log into another workstation. Perhaps LogMeIn automatically copies these files for you? Ideally the plugin settings should have been stored in User\AppData\Roaming.Paul, I have another wish about the installation. We work with LogeMeIn, maybe you know it. We can roll out the softwares in operation, uninstall them, and so on. It works by the standalone, but we have some problems with the plugin. Somehow we can´t install it by our excellent tool. Could you please develop an msi-Package for the install-process? It would be really nice, if it was possible.
Yes, I was aware that the folder names change depending on the AC language. I think this is really an ArchiCAD issue - since it should have the same folder structure regardless of the language. I don't think there is anything I can do about this - sorry. The installer does not contain the smarts to determine the language version of AC installed.The second is the copy of the Plugin-folder under the local Visualisaton-folder. There are not so many language-versions of the ArchiCAD. Maybe Graphisoft can help you to have a list of the "Visualisation" folders. We have solved the copy with a simple batch-file.
