Tedious, but it should work! Thanks, I'll give it a shot when I find the time.

That would be a really useful thing to have if the script were something where I could specify a start, middle and endpoint in coordinates, and the number of objects to spawn, and then have a curve generated with that data. Bonus if we could omit the midpoint for a straight line. It's not just about springs though, so much as any scenario where the player is off the ground, like riding a polyobject diagonally.

What about a script that could take the coordinates Furiousfox's script spits out and create objects from that? Also, if lua won't work, what about a SOC? Quick and dirty custom EXE just so I can save the things out?

EDIT felt like talking more: Mappers have always been pretty conservative with aerial object placement, but then the classic games were all about that. I really want to encourage Z movement with this map, and having a 1:1 relationship with object placement and gameplay is ultimately the sanest way to do that. Plotting the player's movement with objects is a great tool for general game design too- I don't have time to dig it up, but I remember the developers for Rayman Legends doing a behind-the-scenes video where they showed off this function in their editor that spawns player sprite trails. They'd perform a jump, plot the arc with sprites, and then place a platform inside that arc to create super tight platforming sequences.
