    I'm so excited!!! I have no clue how it's going to work, nor how to animate ... but I could tear a pillow to shreads right now, in anticipation of what this will mean to home designers.

    Thank you for your hard work! <3

    Amaaazing :)

    could you please add one feature? make auto recording of animation backwards.

    example: you make a gate slide open, if you also want to make the gate close again (make sense?) then you need to manually make new recording in reverse every time.

    GJ keep it up :)

    Every time I see one of your videos I feel inspired to do something new and exciting with my manor. Now if only my skill set allowed me to follow through.

    I encourage every player who engages in the housing aspect of this game or even anyone who purchases from the crown store with any frequency to visit this thread and leave your feedback. ZoS has recently stated that despite housing commanding the highest price of any activity in the they believe improving it would require too much effort. They will however continue to provide costly asset flips

    @Sharalei Thank you so much! And this is made possible using the new Furniture Linking feature that ZOS has delivered unto us (thank you @ZOS_ChipHilseberg again, if I haven't said it enough already).

    Wha-- ... is this a fully operational port that I am seeing here? A[nimation]+ imho. By the way, did you leverage the new[ish] Merge button for this, did you record a Build's output, both - or was this purely done by hand? Just curious :smile:

    This is crazy for an add-on to be able to do. Have you tried a general application to ZOS? They're recruiting. :sweat_smile:

    Thank you so much :smiley: I'll be honest, I would love to work at ZOS. And if it were to work on this part of the platform, that would be thoroughly awesome. With that said, I did not realize that they were recruiting Devs at the moment. I will take a look at the postings - thank you for the heads up! <3

    Just curious, how many interesting hooks were in the API before you started demonstrating the functionality of your addon? Outside of simple position type hooks?

    I suspect not many and I further suspect that they are now adding animation hooks based on what you are doing with your addons. There aren't many companies out there that won't take a run at seeing if they can hire the person that is driving their development.

    I absolutely love how the sky is the limit in terms of creativity!

    Likewise! I really love what you did with your boat animations! B)
    You’ve inspired me to go out and buy more of those.
    The entire scene looks amazing; I’d love to visit and see it in person if you wouldn’t mind.

    and I just saw this too by the way...
    First, thank you so much.

    To answer your question, the API was pretty basic in terms of being able to do anything dynamic with your house. But I think I was able to do quite a bit with just the 2 functions: one to get an item's current position and one to move an item; so I suppose tons of functions weren't needed to achieve what the first few generations of Essential Housing Tools did.

    Also, to be fair, Chip at ZOS has been super awesome about considering my feedback and has delivered new functions that I have requested with each major release. For example, the addition of the functions to get an interactive item's state as well as to set it. After he added those, I was then able to build all of the cool home automation features in Essential for lights, switches and the like (and why I also finally implemented my overall idea for Triggers). So I am totally thankful for that "partnership" of sorts because it helps everyone have more fun with housing! :smiley:

    With that said, I think I am definitely going to apply in light of @Turelus comment as I hadn't realized that there were positions available.

    I’ve been thinking of doing this for a while now, but somehow real life has a nasty habit of getting in my way.
    I have to tell you I’m addicted.
    I am currently working on the séance/poltergeist room in my “Haunted Castle”. If you are interested, I would appreciate your feedback:)
    And you can always stay for dinner...I’m pretty sure the “head” chef would love to try a new recipe out on you. ;)
