Dev Diary #179 Placing Patterns

Recommended Posts

Hey there Ylanders! 

As we promised in the last Dev Diary, we're bringing more information about the 1.7 update! Since we've been disclosing a lot about Exploration and all of its new features and fixes, we thought it was about time we showed you, our talented creators, a bit of what 1.7 will bring into Editor. 

It may sometimes be time consuming when you're trying to fill an yland with a large number of items to make it look populated. And since we want you to be able to fully unleash your creativity rather than spend time placing every single plant manually, we have created a tool, which will help you span a large amount of objects over your terrain or any other surface in a pattern you choose. We call this tool an Object Brush. 


The tool will come with a set of predefined patterns you can choose from such as the taiga forest or a cool rock formation. In order to not restrict your creativity in any way however, the Object Brush tool will allow you to define your own patterns, which can be used to create whatever you can imagine! 

The Object Brush will also allow you to change the brush size, brush shape and whether you would like it to snap to a specific terrain such as water, terrain or entities. 

We can't wait to see all the ways in which our creators will use this tool, because just like with any other feature, we hope to be surprised by the creative uses they come up with! 

As we're nearing the release of the 1.7 update, we are very excited and we hope you are too! 

That's it for this week so stay safe and stay classy, Ylanders!
