DESCRIPTION

Designer Tools


Designer Tools will simplify your SimpleRockets building experience with tons of new tools.

This is a Beta Version, not all tools have been added and there might be some unexpected bugs.

Some functionalities will be spread around the designer interface but you will find most of them under the designer tools tab on the left. Currently, the only tools added are the View tools, when you open the panel you will be able to switch to an orthographic view and add reference images to simplify and have a greater precision for building replicas.
You can also select multiple parts by holding "Tab", in this version this feature is only useful to paint multiple parts at once but see this as a proof of concept as in a future update this will be expanded to allow multi-part editing for any property.

Note that this mod won't make your craft unsharable. Even if MODS DON'T WORK ON MOBILE any craft you build with this mod will still be loadable on mobiles or computers that don't have the mod installed as these are just tools and nothing gets uploaded with the craft.

Known Bugs and Disclaimer

When editing an image's position, you have to click once next to your craft, this will place a fuel tank that will be deleted when the editing is finished. I am sorry for the inconvenience but it's the only (temporary) way that I've found to overcome a bug that I'm trying to correct.

-

Bug: When the view tools panel is closed and reopened, the "select image" button appears for already selected images instead of the "Edit Image" button.

-

Bug: Going to crazy on the multiple part selector can freeze the game.
Fix: Don't use the multiple part selector except to test it / Force to quit and restart the game.

-

Bug: The orthographic view toggle button disappears when the orthographic view is on and the view tool panel is closed and opened again.
Fixed in Version Beta-0.3 / Beta-0.4.1

-

Bug: When undoing step the images move.
Fixed in Version Beta-0.2

    @SethTheEngineer wait that happens every time? Is it possible you forgot to save the images with the save reference images button. When you undo the craft is reloaded and so are the images, if they're not saved they will disappear

    Found a extremely annoying bug: When undoing a step, the reference images stop working. I have to manually add them again and punch in the numbers.

    A way to solve "Going to crazy on the multiple part selector can freeze the game" with lower possibility for losing your unsaved craft: open dev con, go into planet studio,exit planet studio, back to designer, save the craft now.

    @Mrmaraunet okay I'll check the dev console

    @Doublehsh the image library is the panel where there is a list of images, you select the one you want and click ok? If that's what you mean, check the dev console it might be a file problem (too big, not png or jpg...), also remember to download the last version of the mod.

    If the library is the panel in the bottom right corner. There is a bug where when an image is selected the button displays "select image" instead of "edit image" so if you want to change an image you have to delete the image and select a new one, even if the "select image" button can be missleading

    @Mrmaraunet well when I click on "select image" in the image library of the tool, it doesn't choose or display any picture

    @Doublehsh still works for me, must be specific. Can you tell me more precisely what the problem is? And open the dev console to check for errors

    @KnightofMandalor I've never used the sp one but I think the differences between the mods come from the differences between sr2 and sp mainly
