    I subscribe that this tool needs proper documentation. It has a bit of an overly-complicated interface and it doesn't work as expected. For example, if I set a plane to be my vertex paint plane, it duplicates it and translates it up, making the plane I want to paint on hard to see... Weird. Why would you want to duplicate that plane and make that visible? And after I set an object to be "system" (unfriendly naming btw), it doesn't use it for painting at all. Basically, it doesn't paint. Also, I see you seem to be using a particle emitter?... I tried pressing play and changing values... still painting doesn't work. Last thing, I think you shouldn't have the vertex colors visible by default. People need to see what they are painting, meaning the objects, not necessarily the vertex color. It would be ideal to just paint geometry and use pen pressure to activate different values, and be able to randomize things. Again, I have only played a bit with it, and since it doesn't seem to work (nor be intuitive enough, especially without proper documentation), I abandoned it. So I don't know if my comments are of any value, since I don't really understand much of this script, but my point is: it could be more intuitive and it needs some docs :) Last thing though, I think painting through vertex painting is not ideal, because you are limited by the number of vertices. You have to duplicate low poly objects for this scope alone, and subdivide them a lot, in order to have a bit of resolution...
