Free Lightwave plugins
Slider custom object lscripts
These slider plugins let you simulate a horizontal or vertical slider. The parameters can be represented by Y in the slider plugin, and X in the Slider_Horizontal plugin.
In the case of the Slider_Horizontal plugin, only the XY view is used. Users asked for a solution that could work similarly to Lightwaves slider plugin, but without showing up on every viewport.
The vertical slider can also be seen in perspective view.

Functions related to physically based rendering, in Lightwave Nodes
This Lightwave node contains many functions implemented from this article by Jordan Stevens on PBR rendering. It remains a work in progress, but you are welcome to use and expand on the effort. To use it, import it into LW nodal.
Physically based rendering is composed of three primary functions
a Normal Distribution Function (NDF),
a Geometric Shadowing Function (GSF),
and a Fresnel function. The first two types are implemented in these nodes.
Below are some of the functions implemented.
