This is really cool - just made building my library so much easier. Question - is it possible to make it with alternating objects? Say, dark rough stone and light rought stone?
Steely-eyed Missile-man ftw!@Jaeysa This has been requested a number of times, so to help everyone achieve this alternating stone look, I've updated Immaculate Construction. Version 0.99e now automatically alternates between two different source items. Just add the first stack, wait for rendering to complete, and then add the second stack of different items; then construct as normal. :-)
First of, thank you for making this fanastic addon! It is much appreciated. How can i make a simple row of chairs or books etc?
I made an airship with your awesome housing tools
Animator is awesome! Can finally give others the experience of visualizing one's mind's eye. Transformers, Voltron cats, light cycles (Tron), folding rooms, etc... Props for making this stuff happen! Super glad you've brought these tools to the community.
Definitely would love the ability to add and remove items on the fly to/from group when in animator.
An example, 10 frames in; having starting with a group of 9 Dream Shards, the ability to add 3 Varla Stones in an on state every 3rd frame, off every 6th frame, without starting over from scratch. Effectively being able to add items on the fly, to the original group. This would be a significant next level step for the animator.
Often I've gotten halfway through an animation and wanted to add or remove items without starting over. (Current work around seems to always having enough forethought to start with what is needed for entirety of the animation which is great if story-boarding but tedious for on the fly proofs.
An even more ideal solution, imo perhaps, would be to have the ability to store and work with more than one group of items. (i.e. the ability to create additional and separate groups, expressed as tabs, that could be used dynamically in conjunction with the original starting group of items.)
Brainstorming some thoughts more than anything. Glad to have the new functions more than anything.
Keep up that stellar work! Many Thanks
Yay! Thanks @R_K!
Oh it's you! I just wanted to publicly thank you for giving me a way to put books on shelves in an orderly fashion. Saved me hours of frustration! Your addons are awesome
Hi, is there a way to make a circular floor with the floor/circle functions? I tried using multiples of the statue base item that was on the luxury vendor this past weekend, to make a rounded floor, but for eg. with the circle function I get the opening in the middle, like a donut. Is there a way to have this filled in, or use the floor function and get a rounded floor? Thanks in advance for your help!
Hi @Jaimeh ! So, I have to apologize because I don't have enough Circular Bases; but, using the Square Bases, I threw together a quick video to show you how you could construct a larger, circular shape using multiple "rings." So, to fill in the donut's hole, in the case of your circular floor, you may want to construct a second, smaller, inner ring -- using the same circular bases -- that fills in that gap left by your larger, outer ring. Let me know if this helps or if I perhaps misunderstood your question though.
Thank you @R_K, that worked perfectly! Concentric circles was my hunch too--I made two variants for practice: the first one has a different angle on the outer circle (the inner needs to be raised slightly), and then second is uniform (though I'd need additional items to make the edges smoother). To say Immaculate Construction is brilliant and I it, would be an understatement!
This is so satisfying to watch
