Thank you very much.

Just a little update, I got walls working with grid snapping. So know you can place a nice row using the snap grid tool and have no worries. Work even when Rotating 90 degree, Get perfect cubes every time. Well as long as you use snap to grid tool......

Very, very cool!

Could you add some pieces with an angle so that we can make a slant roof? Would be very helpful..

I edited my post. Please take a look. Is there a poll on steam or do you want us to write our preferences here in a post?

PS: I really like the standard alu look and I also like the green and the black
frame. And I think that a blue glass with reflection would look amazing.. Like what you see on many sunglasses.

That is a very good Idea. I had planed to do that tonight but sadly family came over and want to use PC. So now I'm behind all on tonight's launch of more UGC. But thats okay because I got all night to do it now woot woot. Shame I cant steam :(

Thank you very much for letting me know about that. The walls I have made so far are not designed for using diagonaly. I do have plans to make some diagonal pieces tho.

I really enjoy the new pieces.
The one thing that could be improved are the doors. At the moment no path fits through it. The only option is to leave it out. Maybe you can make a double width door with enough height and some design (bow or normal door design but double width... or both!!) so that we can build ways through it.

I love the glasshouse collection! Great work.

I plan on making more doors and more window walls to give the players more options.

Thanks for all the Feed back you all are giving me, it really helps and all the Positive comments really pushing me to keeping at it.

I'm sure with more tweaking of the walls you might get them to work but right now I'm just worrying about getting enough pieces out so that everyone has good options. Would love to see what people have made with it so far.

Should have Diagonal pieces done in a day or two.

Tomorrow I plan on adding some wall extra's and some roof extras to finish off the basic set. Then move in to diagonal pieces and Curved pieces. After that more roof options and more stylized walls and doors.

Great! That helps. I didn´t know that you have to build the path first and have to place the door afterwards.

Awesome! One of the things we are looking at is a better way to organize content in the game. We have some designs and are just in the process of figuring out how quickly we can do it. The goal is to make it super easy for you to put all your stuff in one place and organize it.

Could you guys Make the UGC Browser bigger it gets old only being able to see/enable/disable one ugc at at time because the menu box is so small.

Im talking about the one on the main menu.

Hey deathtome,

nice UGC what you've created. Could you please tell me, how you created the transparent glass material in Unity? I exported it in the .fbx file from Cinema, and it's just grey.

Thank you

Nice deathtome! You also could make stairs :)

I have an another question for you because i think you have also a lot of assets. Do you have a limitation (a red 1 in the content manager navigation = it means you just have one page), for your UGC's? I just can see 50 UGC's and than nothing more. It's the last items in the alphabet, like the windmill, which disappears in the list, when i have more than 50 active?

I don't know if I have a red one or not, I currently have over 60 pieces of UGC in my game and have been adding more to it in the last few days. Not tho that all the UGC that I currently have are all pieces that I have made.

I dont know if i am going to make stairs but I do plan to make a safety ladder with a cage around it. My staff has to have some way to clean all those windows. :D

Thank you, I would love to see some screenshots. I normally try to put out new items every other week. Sometimes I meet that deadline sometimes I don't.

Currently working on a ladder, cat walk pieces, as well as railing pieces. I do plan to make more options for roofs just kinda got side tracked with some extra assets for the collection.

Yeah, but not like an animated image. I would build the pieces in the video and write something or talk about the benefits of your theme :). Because i think something between 10-20 seconds is too short to see the beauty! Show the community in which way you recommend to build the pieces together and which assets from others or from RCTW would look good with it. Give them some options.I will publish one for the Steam Workshop too. Maybe you are not finished with it by the release. Than you can see what i mean.
