I've spent a good few hours making this little tool, so hopefully people can make use of it.
Essentially you run it, then hit R to keep generating different coloured platforms.
It's nothing special, and can certainly be improved upon (if you can make head/tails of the sourcecode!) but for the mostpart I'm happy with how it turned out.
.. I think.. But like I say, I've yet to actually DO anything with the results.
That'll be a task for another day.
You can download the tool Right Here. And be sure to let me know if you make use of it.
