Advanced Building

Advanced Building is a mod that gives you some additional in game information about blocks but also lets you edit the block position, rotation and scale.

Scroll clicking on any block will reveal a small panel with information about the selected block.

To enable block transformation and also saving those transformations in snapshots, you need to add the Reticule Reaserch Hadamard Superposer block on your tech.
This block is a RR Accessory and can be crafted with 5 Seed AI.

When you have this block on your tech, a new window will open on your screen that will let you edit the selected block.

On the Blocks infos window you will see a new button that will let you edit the block transform using visual gizmos.When the gizmos are enabled you can select or deselect other blocks by clicking on them with left shift pressed.
You can also transform the block by a certain increment by holding left ctrl.

Is the transformation accessory still required in rnd and creative? It would be handy if it were enabled by default in those modes.

Not to necro a thread(and hate asking this...), but, any chance of an update...or does Advanced Building's blockproperties window still work with the current Terratech version? Very, very handy mod for playing, and have to give credit where its due. Also wondering whether there will be an eventual TTSMM release over Steam - just curiosity.

Anyway, really do like this one. Used it in a older version and was very handy. :)

Part of it has been ported recently in the form of Builder Tools containing the utilities such as the search with the block transforms coming in the near future

As for the properties window it would be better suited to have a separate mod that list as much stats as possible

True. Getting Builder Utilities for now, then(had passed by it in lieu, not anymore). Looking very forwards to a possible properties-window mod, too. Would greatly help with the amount of new corps popping up. :)
