I am soooo eager to try out this new building tool and I also can’t wait to see how the new UI looks. Soon, I know. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I am going to require a time machine to go forward to when this releases, because I have insufficient patience.

In the meantime, I shall continue to travel forward in time at the whopping rate of 1 second / second

YES! YES! YES! Oh god, I hope you will be able to edit existing buildings! :scream:

That’s basically light speed compared to how this day is going for me. :smiley:

In other news… Wooo! Great update, sooo looking forward to the new building system.

It has taken some time, but were getting somewhere with the new building system. :smiley:

You can try to stepping in a near speed of light rocket, I think that will do the trick. :smile:

Edit

I’m talking about time dilation, the effect where your experienced time is legthened from someone else perspective, (but not yours) because you move very quickly w.r.t. that other person. That way you can travel into the future with more than one second per second. Doing this to the past is not possible.

I’m not quite knowledgable about the matter, but it sounds like fun. Now, if I may be excused for a moment…

Hmm didn’t we show it already? :thinking:

Yes, in the quarterly stream: YouTube

Those are UI elements of the new builder, although they won’t be shown all at the same time.

Here is the in-progress version with most of the new icons. **Some things may change between this and final though as a caveat.

I’m really looking forward to get my hands in this new building system. It has been a long wait, but I believe it has been worth it.

Have fun, Kyth.

Is that a ladder tool?

Sure does look like it. At first I thought maybe we were gettin’ taller fences, but when ya zoom in the rungs don’t extend past the edges like it does on the fence. Kinda nice to be able to add it in the building process. I’ve seen several streamers include ladders in their builds so that saves the extra step of having to remember to add the ladder later.

Is that… a terraforming tool next to it?

Nope, none of them are tools, they’re UI for tools :slightly_smiling_face:

@not_owen_wilson, I’m getting the sense that @Sweet wants that fence tool REALLY BADLY. :wink:

Edit: She’s only been after us about it for… a year now.
Edit 2: Maybe 15 months.

I remember the stream where @Tom talked about one day making the fence a draggable zone tool. Excited to see it might finally happen!


That said, one thing I haven’t seen is how to put buildings at ground level / into the ground. All the videos have shown buildings be built on top of the ground. Is this still going to be an option, or are those of us that like buildings at ground level going to have to do some extra steps to get that?

And if this has already been answered, I apologize, as I don’t remember there being an answer.
