Version 4.1.0 News

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Adjusted the placement of new Builds as well as the placement of a current Build when "Bring to Me" or "Reset Build" is clicked. Your shape will be reconstructed in front of your character.

- SNAPPING! Yes, Snap an item to adjacent items easily with the new Snap Furniture feature.

Before getting started, first assign a keybind for:
Controls > Essential Housing Tools > Snap Furniture Items

=== How Furniture Snapping Works ===

* While in House Editor mode, simply target an item and press the Snap Furniture Items keybind (configured under Controls > Essential Housing Tools > Snap Furniture Items).
If there are touching (or nearly touching) items, the Snap Furniture palette will appear.

* Using the palette, you can cycle through the various edges that the two items can be snapped together along.

* If there are multiple adjacent items, you can also cycle through those items using the palette to ensure that the correct two items are snapped together.

Note that you may adjust how far away adjacent items can be by changing Settings > Addons > Essential Housing Tools > Furniture Snapping Radius.

- Added Margin adjustment controls to the Snap Furniture palette. Now, you can nudge the snapped item a little to the left or a little up or down to get a perfect snap.

2018-07-07 - Version 3.9.3

[ Fixes ]

- Fixed a long-standing UI Error that could occur when resizing the game's window or when swapping between the game and the Window's or Mac desktop.


2018-07-06 - Version 3.9.2

[ Fixes ]

- Added the "Circumference" parameter back to the Spiral build template -- it was slightly useful.


2018-07-06 - Version 3.9.1

[ Fixes ]

- Fixed an issue that could cause some of the add-on's windows to hide when they should not hide. These windows are no longer quite so shy.


2018-07-06 - Version 3.9.1

[ Fixes ]

- Fixed an issue that could cause some of the add-on's windows to hide when they should not hide. These windows are no longer quite so shy.


2018-07-06 - Version 3.9.0

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added a "Space items automatically based on Item Count" checkbox to the Build tab for many shape templates.
Example: Check this option to automatically size a Circle to fit all of the items in your selection, spaced evenly.
Example: Uncheck this option to fit items side-to-side in a shape; and then adjust manually, if needed, using the Item Spacing parameters to achieve seamless edges.

- The add-on's windows will now hide any time you use any game menu, such as Settings, your Inventory or the Bank.


2018-07-03 - Version 3.8.5

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added a new Setting, "Select and Place" which, when enabled, causes the Group Select keybind to add the targeted item to your selection *as well as* leave the item selected so that you may place the item. When enabled, this allows for even finer control over the mouse cursor *following* a Group Select.

- Added a new Setting, "Hide While Placing" which, when enabled, hides all of the add-on's windows while you are placing an item in the home. Enabling this reduces user interface clutter whenever you need the most screen real estate.

[ Fixes ]

- Removed the "Drag Items" checkbox to prevent accidental dragging of the currently selected items. Note: You can still "drag and drop" any selected item and have the remaining selected items move along with it by checking the "Link Items" checkbox.


2018-07-01 - Version 3.8.4

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added a Minimize button to the top of the window that will reduce the entire dialog to the title bar only, helping to minimize clutter when the add-on isn't your focus.

- Added the selected item's Icon to the Position window (accessed via the Edit Item Position keybind).


2018-06-30 - Version 3.8.3

[ Fixes ]

- Addressed an issue that could cause some Clipboard export data to generate incorrectly, resulting in shifted or offset items when pasted.


2018-06-28 - Version 3.8.2

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added a new option to the "Arrangment" drop down list at the bottom of the main window.

* "Center between 2 Targets" centers your selected items between two different target items.


2018-06-28 - Version 3.8.1

[ Fixes ]

- Adjusted the "Level with Target" arrange option to level your selected items using their Base Y position rather than their "center" Y position. This should yield more accurate results when leveling multiple items.


2018-06-28 - Version 3.8.0

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added a new drop down list to the bottom of the main window that offers multiple "Arrangement" options:

* "Center on Target" centers your selected items on a target item.

* "Level with Target" levels your selected items' bases with the target item's base.

* "Align with Target's X-Axis" aligns your selected items with the target item's X-Axis.

* "Align with Target's Y-Axis" aligns your selected items with the target item's Y-Axis.

* "Align with Target's Z-Axis" aligns your selected items with the target item's Z-Axis.

* "Match Target Orientation" orients all of your selected items using the same pitch, yaw and roll as the target item.

- Renamed the "History" tab to "Undo" to clarify where to go to use the Undo / Redo functions.

[ Fixes ]

- Corrected the tab order of the parameters on the Build tab.


2018-06-26 - Version 3.7.0

[ New Features and Changes ]

- Added an option to enable/disable automatic rebuilding whenever you change a parameter on the Build tab; added a Build button to the Build tab to manually initiate a build.

- In House Editor mode, you can now select an item that you are in the process of moving or rotating.

- In House Editor mode, you can now automatically place and select a new item that you are in the process of placing.

- The Change Type for each line item shown in the History tab is now color coded.

- There is now a more prominent visual indicator displayed on the History line item that is currently active.

[ Fixes ]

- The Housing Editor should no longer randomly become locked after Essential Housing Tools displays a confirmation dialog window.

- The Selected Items on the Select tab will no longer lose the current scroll position whenever items are Selected or Unselected.

- The Clipboard Items on the Clipboard tab will no longer lose the current scroll position whenever the clipboard is refreshed.

- The History tab will no longer lose the current scroll position whenever the history is refreshed.

- Improved the playback speed of Animations.


2018-06-22 - Version 3.6.0

- Problematic, off-center furnishings that wobble or move when pitched, rotated or rolled are now automatically offset to compensate for their awkward configuration. The result should be dramatically easier positioning and rotation when using the Build tab.

- Overhauled the Build tab's template parameters to reduce the number of mandatory fields while offering very fine control over the finished product for those who dabble with the additional sliders.

- Reworked a number of the calculations used by the Build tab's various templates to be more accurate.

- Improved the speed of item move/rotate operations under certain conditions.

- Added new Shape Template "Dome" to the Build tab.

- Addressed an issue that caused the Build tab's [ Reset ] button to set an incorrect origin position for the selected template.

- All dialog windows now automatically hide when you open the Browse dialog in the Housing Editor, while you manually move / place furniture and when you enter a non-Player Housing zone (leave a player house).

- Moved the batch job Progress Bar to the bottom of the main window and updated its aesthetics to be more prominent.

- Moved the batch job Process Name into the Progress Bar.


2018-06-20 - Version 3.5.0

- Added the ability to Load and Save Builds on the Build tab using the [ Load / Save ] button.

- Corrected the warning message shown when Recording in an Animation Scene that had existing Frames. The message now accurately indicates that new frames will be -inserted- after the current frame, rather than deleting existing frames.


2018-06-19 - Version 3.4.1

- Fixed a UI error that would occur when using the [ Reset ] button on the Build tab.


2018-06-19 - Version 3.4.0

- Added X, Y and Z Position parameters to the Build tab to allow fine control over the exact position of a given build.

- Revised the calculations used for the "Sphere" Shape Template:

* Curvature should now be approximated more accurately (within reason relative to the shape of item(s) that you construct with).

* Item Length, Width and Height are now rotated by the Item Pitch, Yaw and Roll (under the hood) automatically to better fill out the spherical shape with less overlap or empty space between individual items.

- Added a Help icon to the main add-on window that opens your browser to the YouTube Essential Housing Tools tutorial playlist.
(updates to the videos will follow soon as most of them were recorded during v1 and v2 of the add-on...)


2018-06-17 - Version 3.3.0

- The Build tab will now be shared across all houses. Set up a project in one home, rebuild it in another without having to re-enter all of the parameters.

- Added new Shape Template "Sphere" to the Build tab.

- Added a warning that appears when switching to the Build tab if the build's position is far from your character's current position -- there is a new Setting that controls the threshold for this warning.

- Added a handy "/clockme" command that starts/stops a timer that clocks your character's movement speed. Run "/clockme" once, preferably while already moving, and run it again to get a report of how far and how fast you moved.


2018-06-16 - Version 3.2.0

- Added new Shape Template "Rectangle (Filled)" to the Build tab. This template constructs a Solid Rectangle, of "Length" items by "Width" items, such that a Length of 5 and a Width of 5 would require 30 total items.

- Changed the existing Shape Template "Rectangle" on the Build tab. This template constructs a Rectangle Outline, of "Length" items by "Width" items, such that a Length of 5 and a Width of 5 would require 25 total items.

- Added Pitch and Roll directional pad to the main window's bottom edit panel.

- Separated Custom Precision into its own checkbox for clarity in the main window's bottom edit panel.

- Added a Settings button to the top-right of the main window for easy access to the add-on's Settings panel.


2018-06-14 - Version 3.1.2

- Added the ability to "tab" to the next/previous slider's text box in the Build tab using TAB and SHIFT+TAB respectively.

- Added scroll up/down arrows to the Build tab's scroll slider.

- Adjusted Build tab's scroll slider and mouse wheel scrolling to scroll in a manner that moves from one parameter field to the next.


2018-06-13 - Version 3.1.1

- Added Previous Frame ( << ) and Next Frame ( >> ) buttons to the Animate tab.

- Cleaned up the Animate tab's layout.

- Added explanatory tool tips for the Build tab's different fields.


2018-06-13 - Version 3.1.0

- Added a new mode for the Directional Pad on the edit panel. The default is now "Relative," which offers you the option to move your selected items Forward, Backward, Left and Right relative to the direction your character is facing.

* Note: You may still use the old "Absolute" positioning Directional Pad for North, South, East and West by changing:
Settings > Essential Housing Tools > Editing Items > Directional Editing to Absolute mode.

- Added a new "Drag Items" checkbox on the edit panel. When enabled, all of your selected items move with you. Move north, they move north with you. Climb up, they move up with you.

- Renamed the previous "drag-and-drop" checkbox on the edit panel to "Link Items." It continues to do the same thing: when enabled, any changes that you manually make to any selected items are also made to the rest of your selected items. Move one, the rest move with it. Rotate one, the rest rotate around it.


2018-06-12 - Version 3.0.1

- Addressed a deadlock scenario that could occur during the Item Measurement process that takes place during a Build Reset.


2018-06-11 - Version 3.0.0

- Added three new Build Templates:

* Cylinder
* Rectangle
* Spiral

- Added three new Add-on Settings to allow you to choose an optional "override" for the Select Mode using the ALT, CTRL and SHIFT keys. For example, you could set up the CTRL key so that, when pressed while using the Group Select function, the Select Mode will always be "Contiguous (Same As Target)".

- Reorganized the Add-on Settings panel.

- Addressed several bugs related to Animation Scene data storage.


2018-06-10 - Version 2.9.9

- Added setting panel option to automatically clear all houses' current item selections at the time of login.


2018-06-10 - Version 2.9.8

- Addressed several recently introduced bugs regarding angle calculation and the Build tab's user interface.


2018-06-09 - Version 2.9.7

- Added new Clipboard tab to view the contents of the "virtual" Clipboard (filled using the "Copy" and "Copy From..." buttons).

- Added new Import / Export Clipboard feature to the Clipboard tab, allowing you to share your creations with other players!


2018-06-06 - Version 2.9.6

- Enhanced the Gimbal Lock Protection system to avoid 90- and 270-degree angles for certain rotational axes more aggressively and consistently.

* This feature may be disabled from the add-on's Settings panel; however, this is strongly advised against.


2018-06-05 - Version 2.9.5

- Organized Shape Template Parameter listing for clarity.

- Added explanatory tool tips to the Tabs and Select Tab controls.

- Added ability to right-click selected items to unselect items.

- Addressed some scenarios related to gimbal locks at 90-degree angles (more to come).


2018-06-01 - Version 2.9.4

- Added "Cube" Shape Template to the "Build" tab.

- Added item measurement process to allow for auto-sizing of Cube builds based on the selected items' height, width and length. **Auto-sizing only works for homogeneous item selections that use the items at their default orientation (pitch, yaw, roll = 0)


2018-05-31 - Version 2.9.3

- Copy from any House's Saved Selections and then Paste to any other House (or the same House).


2018-05-30 - Version 2.9.2

- Added support for the Bank and Home Storage Containers -- in addition to the player's own Inventory -- when Pasting a group of items from the virtual "Clipboard," or when "fixing" a loaded Saved Scene or Saved Selection that has one or more missing items.

- Added visual cues for batch updates that are currently in progress, including a progress bar that runs down the side of the main tool window and the name of the batch job in the Title bar.

- Added a Confirmation dialog that allows the player to choose whether to move the entire group of selected items any time that one of those items is moved/rotated _while the main tool window is closed_. The goal here is to remind a player that may be returning to the home hours, days or weeks later that, if they move one of the grouped items, the entire group will be dragged-and-dropped along with it. (This confirmation dialog allows the user to choose NOT to move the rest of the group with it in the event that they did in fact forget.)


2018-05-28 - Version 2.9.1

- Added "Select All" button to the "Select" tab to facilitate easier backups of entire homes.


2018-05-24 - Version 2.9.0

- It has begun. Immaculate Construction is being devoured by Essential Housing Tools. Slowly. Try out the new "Build" tab to construct shapes out of your selected items -- just like Immaculate Construction. More shape templates to come in future updates!

- Also: Summon your Banker, Merchant or Smuggler right to your side in any of your homes. Just use your Quickslot key bind for any of your assistants and they will be teleported directly to you. Use the Quickslot item again to dismiss them back from whence they came! (Credit to @Aliyavana and @Dolgubon <3)

- A number of fixes for rotation calculations and other assorted buggies.


2018-05-19 - Version 2.2.2

Animation Tab:

- Added "Add Selection to Scene" button that adds all new, selected items to the current Scene.

- Fixed a bug that caused the Essential Housing Tools window to open upon login.

- Drag-and-Drop and the Edit Position (X,Y,Z,Pitch,Yaw,Roll) window allow you to move, tilt, rotate and pitch your entire selected group of items by adjusting a single item within the group. Give it a try!

- Fully integrated the "Oops, I Did It Again!" add-on's multi-level Undo and Redo functionality into Essential Housing Tools. Feel free to uninstall "Oops, I Did It Again" if you had previously installed it -- this add-on will be automatically disabled for you until you do so to prevent any potential conflicts.

- The entire Essential Housing Tools suite has been reworked to allow for future mergers of my other add-ons (including Immaculate Construction, Oops I Did It Again and Furniture Snap).


2018-05-12 - Version 2.1.5

Bug fixes for:

- Non-API related rounding errors for a precision of up to 2 decimal places for Pitch, Yaw and Roll.

- Users may adjust the X, Y, Z, Pitch, Yaw and Roll of a single, targeted item using the Edit Item Position window.

2018-04-04 - Version 1.0.6

As for Pitch and Roll -- which add-on were you using that can Pitch/Roll an entire selection of items? I'd like to check it out to see their calculations for those operations as I ran into some snags when combining multiple rotation axes into the picture that I felt would be too confusing for many users.
Yes, please add it back! I thought I was going crazy lol. At least you can still rotate the group with "Rotate CW" and "Rotate Ctr CW".

Also, thanks for all the work put in to these amazing addons. Don't think I'd tackle housing otherwise because the default tools are a joke. <3

Cardinal,
FurnitureGrouper lets you move entire groups across all axis, including pitch and role, by only moving one item from the group.

Tested finally. Performance looks much better now.

Hey cardinal,
After updating to 2.1.3, that bugger window still pops up. >_<
I dont suppose it could have a function call somewhere thats being triggered by another addon?

Also, another thing of note:
  • Selection Saves do not propagate across different homes.
I can save a furniture selection in one home and it will vanish from the load list upon entering a new home.
Example:


After saving and porting to another home:



Both the saved list and the previously selected items from said list vanish, and do not appear in the Load List.

I was unable to locate a setting for this behavior, so I presume its either:
A) Automatic with the 2.1.1 version
or
B) A variable is "stuck" somewhere.
Any suggestions?

Hey! I wanted to let you know: I was reviewing the architecture of the User Interface code and noticed that there were some routines running each time you would move a group of selected items. The slow down was minor on my system, but I am going to assume that this was, at least in part, responsible for the slowness you had originally reported. I've addressed that issue in the latest release (2.1.1) so if you download that, you should likely see performance improvements. If you do get a chance to check it out and can let me know, I'd hugely appreciate it! :-)

No worries! I actually didn't experience that on PTS a few days ago; but, maybe it was during a busy time when you tried it -- or at least, I am hoping... :-P If you still experience issues though, please do let me know -- I appreciate any and all feedback!

I was, in fact, adjusting the group to by 90 and 180 degree angles. I had a group that needed to be duplicated, rotated 180 degrees, and then re-aligned to its cousin. The rotated group of 3 items didn't quite line up after the rotation, and that's when I discovered (through Homestead OCD) that the roll and/or pitch were off.

I don't experience this scenario when using the built-in editor or Homestead OCD to do the rotation, so I can only assume there is a way around it. There may be some useful info from dissecting the Homestead OCD code. Yaw is the most common axis to rotate, so I would expect it to be prioritized over Roll and Pitch.

I'll do some more testing later.

Hi there! First, thank you so much for the feedback.

With regard to the Yaw/Pitch/Roll -- you are 100% correct about the ~0.01 offset from your expected angle(s). This should be the result of the add-on's built-in adjustments to attempt to avoid Gimbal Lock scenarios; however, if you can send me specifics on a use case where the offset is being applied without adjusting from/to/over a 90 degree angle, I'll take a look to see if that logic is 'overperforming', of course.

As for performance, the add-on will attempt to move a maximum of 1 object per 100ms (10 objects/sec) to avoid exceeding ZeniMax's (quite fair) message rate limit. But, what you're describing is far slower than that. If this is happening under fair to ideal latency conditions (<150ms), I would check the add-on's Settings panel -- specifically the "Edit Speed" slider. Make sure that this is set to 100 for maximum performance. If it is, and your latency (ping) is good, let me know which house you were in and which items you had selected so I can try to recreate the scenario on my PC.

Thanks again! :-)

So I checked out SaveHouse and the add-on also crashed my game several times when trying to restore a saved setup that included collectibles (I tried a few including the Revolving Celestiodrome), which makes sense since it's using the same API function that I would have to use to place a Collectible.

For the time being, I have revised Essential Housing Tools to work with Collectibles for all functions but Copy & Paste, seeing as I can't guarantee that Pasting the collectible back into the home won't crash the players' games. I hope this helps!
