Chunky can be extended with plugins, e.g. to add new blocks, post processors or even add all new renderer implementations.
Renderer switching in Chunky 2.4.0 or later
As of Chunky 2.4.0 renderer switching is supported. ChunkyClPlugin’s
ChunkyCLRenderer cannot yet be selected to be used in conjunction with the Denoising Plugin though they won’t cause an exception anymore.
Plugins which have not yet been updated to support the new
addRenderer API feature (Ambient Occlusion Plugin and Depth Buffer Plugin) are still supported and are added with the name of PluginRenderer.
Plugins are often distributed as
.jar files, and sometimes are contained within a .zip archive, and can be loaded in Chunky via the
Plugin Manager. To install plugins, click on
Manage Plugins within the Chunky Launcher to open the
Plugin Manager. Clicking on
Open plugin directory will create a
plugins folder within the Chunky settings directory. Plugins can be added by first either copying or extracting them to the
plugins directory and then by selecting the plugin and clicking on the
Add button within the
Plugins are loaded from top to bottom. The loading order usually doesn't matter but can fix incompatibilities in some cases. Consult the documentation of the plugins you're using for further information.
