So I used google sketchup to make some basic models for the building design in this game. If any of you are interested in using them to make a quick mockup of your house or try out different designs easily, all you have to do is download sketchup and then download my pack that contains some of the basic models. The models contain the wall which can be used as a ceiling as well, a ramp, the staircase, the doorway/metal door.
I didn’t include pillars as they are not really necessary for the design process. If people want, I’ll try to add more models.
Anyways, you can download sketchup here.
Here is a pic of what it looks like.
Here is the pack with the Rust models I made.
Edited: New link now including Pillars
It only takes ~30 minutes to really learn how basic tools work you need to manipulate the objects, then your good to go.
Quick Tips for using the program
*If you want to copy an entire piece, like a wall. Click the cursor icon, highlight the entire piece, then just ctrl + c / ctrl + v.
*Then to make them move & snap together, have the item highlighted, click the ‘Move’ icon, then click on the corner of the model and snap it to any corner on another object.
*To rotate an object: Highlight the entire object, click the ‘Rotate’ icon, and depending on the direction you want to go, hover over the object and click and hold and drag the cursor until you see a solid Blue,Green,or Red icon, and then just click again and move your mouse in the direction you want to rotate. (The rotate feature is the only one that really can get annoying to do. Might take you a few tries to figure out all the orientations, just play with it you will get it :D)
*The ‘Pan’ icon allows you to move through the playground easily.
*You can also click and hold the scroll wheel to change your viewing angles.
*If you want to just copy the doorway without the metal door, click on the left side of the door, then shift-click the right side of the door, and you should be able to copy and paste it without the metal piece included.
Play around with some of the other icons. I’ll add more tips when I think of stuff.
