Update 0.4.2.0: New Items!


#1

##New Items
15 new items have been added! These items are: Soda Machine, Vending Machine, Canvas Sign, Street Light, Cash Register, Popcorn Bucket, Small Walnut Table, Massive Office Table, Buffet Table, Serving Table, Fancy Chair, Fancy Sofa, Classic Wood Glass Table, Small Coffee Table, and the Plastic Bubble Chair.

Most of these new items are colorable or have canvas support.

##Updated Scaler Tool (and others)
The recently released scale tool was updated and now has the ability to manually set the scale of items. Now, if you want to set the scale of items to 4, or .15 because you like those numbers, you totally can! This addition also lets you avoid having to click several times to make objects really large.

Scaling items now scale their sound effects! This of course works with instruments, so you can make tiny toy piano music or really bassy drums. With instruments, we’ve added a toggle to this feature.

Copycat tool now works with condo surfaces! This was a heavily requested feature. With this tool improvement, you can repaint your condo walls with a lot more ease.

And lastly, picking up physics items will no longer resize them. So you can resize basketballs and throw them around with the scale you’ve applied!

##Media Player Thumbnails
We’ve added thumbnails to media players when the media player is turned off. This small addition will let players know there is something being played on the media player before they turn it on.

##Pause Menu Shortcuts
In this update we’ve added useful shortcuts to return to your Condo and Tower Express to the pause menu.
