Python scripting: detect which face is selected

Recommended Posts

I'm digging into DarkRadiant's python scripting tools and was wondering if anyone had tips on how to detect which face is selected. Currently I can detect:

  • the brush that is selected
  • the parent (brush) of the selected face

But unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to detect when a specific face is selected. Does anyone have insight on this? Here's my current python script:

	class FaceAligner(dr.SelectionVisitor):
		def visit(self, node):
			if node.isBrush():
				brush = node.getBrush()
				for i in range(0, brush.getNumFaces()):
					face = brush.getFace(i)
					# This iterates over *every* face on the brush, including the selected face.
					# Instead of iterating over every face, I'm looking to iterate only the currently-selected face(s).
	faceAligner = FaceAligner()

      Having seen the new scifi stuff from bladeghost/scythwraith, want to continue the cyberpunk project. Only one problem, can't map.
