Hi Laz Man,

 

you can use the front view or the side view to remove layers:

 

1. click on front view

 

2. (optional) Go to layer 0

 

3. (optional) click on the x-ray mode button to find out which layers you want to delete (this will deactivate the "remove rows" button)

 

4. select some blocks that belong to those layers (right mouse button)

 

5. (optional) click again on x-ray mode to reactivate to "remove rows" button

 

6. move your mouse over the "remove rows" button (this should show you the selected layers)

 

7. click the "remove rows" button

Based on your OP and that the remove layer button/fields are greyed out I am assuming that feature is not implemented yet. If so, do you have plans to add it soon?

Maybe that would be easier for most of the users.^^ So probably yes.

Thanks Pille! That works just fine. :)

I havent tried this out yet. took me ages to learn Hals editor lol haha. so I will wait for a few vids (**Cough**Cough** Guppy) to get into it.

 

My only request since everyone else has the ideas and requests covered is you maybe if possible make this sdx friendly for those whom use sdx as well :-)

Maybe ... but let me cite myself :D

 

 

 

So how can I make it sdx friendly or asked differently, what makes Hal's editor sdx friendly?

 

Pretty much what Stompy stated. Hal was as far as i knew working on a sdx version of his editor pre a16. Maybe can ask Hal but yeh i not very cluey myself tho.

- When in game and i built a prefab. how do i export said prefab.

 

- where does prefab get saved to once exported.

 

- how to re import prefab into a new game.

 

- can i place sleeper blocks (Using creative - dev mode) and the editor will extract orefab with those sleepers.

All these functions aren't included yet. The preliminary goal is to create an editor which has all (or at least the most important) features of Hal's editor (without bbb commands). So it's a pure tts and xml file editor atm. This might change once the goal is achieved.

Update time!

 

Changelog v0.3m (July 20, 2017):

- added new/better sleeper volume algorithm to sleeper generator (click on 'smart' volume placing method then 'auto-generate' sleeper volumes; generating the volumes may take a few seconds!)

- added random SleeperVolumeGroups to sleeper generator (SleeperVolumeGroups will be randomly chosen from the list "active")

- added new console function "print free block ids" (shows a list of all unused ids in the console tab)

 

 

Just a few hints to the new sleeper volume placing method:

* The new method takes care of the room geometry (see screenshot bellow).

* It works better if you don't have 'outdoor' sleepers.

* Don't increase the 'room size parameter' unless the rooms of your prefab are very large.

* Generating volumes using the new algorithm may take up to one minute (in case of large prefabs, e.g. skyscrapers).

Added to the op...

 

Thanks Guppy. Very nice video! I really like your cursor-based walking animation. :)

 

Maybe I should give you a few hints:

* There is a small button '0' beneath the rotation slider which resets the rotation (I know you don't need the prefab rotation feature but who knows...^^).

* The sleepers are much easier to identify if 'show class symbols' is enabled (in option menu).

* You're right, you're not supposed to see the search tab. ;)

* There are two console functions 'Extras -> Print all prefab xml data' and 'Extras -> Print free block IDs'.

 

 

 

Short question: How can you selected multiple layers at once in Hal's editor?
