There are times when I feel the need to take a step back and re-evaluate all my life decisions. Those moments tend to be preceded by questions like how the crap did I end up in this field of kudzu, and where the hell did that snake go? Or how hard could it be to script random materials in Blender with Python—an hour tops?
That last one led me to three days of HELL. This was, by far, the most difficult Blender script I’ve tackled because the API doesn’t have much on how to create materials.
