Been playing with this for a bit and although its is a good app to build basic structures, it would benefit big time
from being able to add standard entities with the current build.
What do I mean?, Doors, Windows, and Decals to mention a few, a punch option to add a wall and punch a hole
for a door or window to be inserted.

Its very time consuming building a model to then have to mess with trying to add doors and windows independant
of the model you have just built.

can this be looked into as serious improvements to this application as it would benefit GameGuru users greatly.

Hi Super Clark

I have created EBE structures in the past with doors and windows and Decals its a bit of fudging but it does work the EBE was never meant to be a fully fledged model maker but it was enough to push me and to learn model making, I even created a billboard with the EBE anything is possible really just got too think out of the box pardon the pun https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/217462

I think you can link entities to your EBE structure by holding L when placing them. This allows you to move everything together. Unfortunately, when you save the structure it doesn't include the other entities.

By the way, GraPhix, I just saw your videos and screenshots of The Site. Nice! How did you create your sloping roofs? That's always an issue for me. Today, I did this but I like your inverted 'V'-shaped roof.

hi lordjulian

I like you building as a 'monk' feeling to it

it was painstakingly slow I created the roof beams by using the 'cube' option with the pageup keys it took ages lol Belidos created the tiles for me on the finished house and it snapped perfectly to my beams

Wow! Well done. That's dedication! I wonder... if I asked Belidos nicely do you think he would throw me the roof to see if it fits any of my other EBE buildings?

Another thing I have tried is using the EBE to create a floor/wall right-angle and then (in entity mode) extract and rotate to make a roof but the never seems to fit quite right.

You're more than welcome to use it if it fits your structure.
