Polyline end caps

Being able to add caps to the end of Polylines would be great, obviously only applicable if it's not a self-closing polyline. This with 3D polylines and the per-point thickness would be especially helpful for creating some interesting effects.

Hi Freya!

I would also like this feature and was wondering if this is something planned soon or when I can expect this change? Do you have a roadmap you can point me to? Looking back through the feedback forum this seems to be the highest thumbs up post that has yet to be completed, but I can't find any other info regarding it.

Thanks!

it has been a little hard to prioritize as of late, between new features and critical fixes, so this one has slipped behind for a bit. I don't think it'll make it into the next update, but the one after that I imagine it could if I prioritize it over some other things!

Hello Freya,

Hoping to see this soon too, specifically Rounded End Caps on the Polyline would be super helpful!

Thanks!

Would love to see this soon too! The rounded and softer endcaps are quite necessary for the style of our game, where basically everything is rounded. Unity's LineRenderer does have it but has other issues, most prominently with 180 degree turns, so I'm currently torn between the two. Unless polylines get rounded endcaps of course, then the decision would be easy.

Polylines will be getting its own large overhaul/update soon, probably after the 4.0.0 update (coming next week)

They've been suffering from legacy code issues for quite some time which has made various things harder than it should be, but, hopefully that will change going forward!

Hi Freya, I just wanted to see if there was any updates on End Caps on Polylines. It is a feature I am after for a current project.


Thanks in advance.

I don't really have a timeframe at the moment, though polylines are next in line to get updates! so whenever I have time to get back to a big update, they'll come :)
