I updated the archive with plugin (staring as "Array" command in Edit menu) and a bit revisited compound.
If using command from EDIT menu, you'll be prompted for a picking session.
First you pick object you want to copy,
second, you can choose another object if you want to distribute copies on it's points.
I still didn't get to toss edges and polygons as option.
You don't have to pick either , so you can manually pluck ICE tree.
ICE tree will be nested in an empty mesh called Array.
There is also a small visual helper (colored vector with name) for MAIN, A and B parameters.

Cheers!

Very useful indeed. I wasnt able to make plugin work but compound is immense. Now, on to making instant walls and braking them with momentum. :D

On a more serious note, is there a way to make tabs on compound ppg? With something like this it would be good to have a bit of separation for each axes...

Thank you

What's wrong with the plugin, can't load it or the command doesn't work?
I thought of organizing it but I don't know how to customize a PPG for ICE operators.
Sorry.

The options to customize an ICE compound PPG are very limited, as is described here

Sorry, the plugin works just fine. I renamed the compound for easier identification which, naturally, messed it up. My bad.
