Back in an earlier alpha, a player could view floors via the slice tool. In the picture, you see the slice at 69m. Normally, that would mean that anything above 69m would be cut off, allowing the player a top down view of the floor at 69m.
I’ve stated several times about how important this was. Granted that the player is now able to place furniture during build mode, its not so easy to update buildings with outdated furniture. Why? Because the player has to ‘reach’ for the furniture by profile view which makes ‘reaching’ for furniture near the center of the building almost infinitely harder than to select a piece of furniture from a top down view.
Please…for the sake of making it easier on all of us trying to place furniture and update older furnishings as well as arranging them. You guys might have no idea how hard it is to get a bearing of a floor plan from a profile view.
Imagine trying to grasp the floor plan of a house you’re going to buy by looking at it from profile view and then trying design the interior of said house via profile view. Nigh impossible? Yea.
To be clear, the fact that I have a floor for a roof in the example above should make absolutely no difference in making the view easier for the player to arrange interior furnishings.
