Just a small tip: You don’t have to undo or remove the roof…just change your directional arrows and it will rotate for you. :smile:

Yup, I discovered that after the fact. I think at some point I tried & it didn’t work so I put myself in the habit above.

I don’t know, I do weird stuff. :stuck_out_tongue:


#4

However, trying to undo a roof after you’ve changed it’s direction causes some errors, and sometimes undoing a roof can cause invisible blocks to be left over too (unless they fixed the invisible blocks?)


#5

That would make sense. If the tool still believes the roof is still there and is turning a null array of roof block objects.


#6

Wouldn’t be hard to fix, it would just have to do a check for each roof style. After all, there are only a certain amount of possibilities that the roof can become.
