February 2024 Condo Contest (Kitchen)

Hey everyone!

The theme of this month’s contest is Kitchen!

Make or decorate a kitchen! The submission should be something that was made after the contest was announced.

Your submission can be a regular Condo or a Workshop Game World Map.

The submission period ends on February 21st, 2024 at 11:59 PM.

Be sure to look at the prizes and follow the rules here!

Workshop SDK: Mover Tools

Much work has been done on making condo items move, along with SDK support for the upcoming Minigolf and Ball Race SDK toolset.

Mover Simple

A simple mover that moves items in a direction, with spin settings.

Mover Path

This is a mover that moves across a spline path.

Mover Train

Has acceleration/deceleration built in. You can adjust cruising speed and stop at points (stations). This actually is the same train that we use in Dark Voyage, Monorail, and Posiedon.

An example of a more complex Mover Train. Mover Train is still in development.

Movers Misc

Movers come with rotation settings such as Direction (which will rotate the items towards the direction of the spline), Spin, and Rotate Towards item (which will face a selected item as it goes across the spline).

Movers work with grouped items, so you can group items together and attach them to a Mover module and move the entire group.

Movers can move pretty much every type of item, such as chairs, lights, sounds, doors, etc.

You can adjust how movers loop, with No Loop (just move an object from one place to another), Back and Forth (move to location, then back to the starting position over and over). Stop And Loop (move to location, stop for X seconds, then back to the starting position).

All movers have IO and start, stop, pause, and reverse input events.

You can attach movers to movers as well.

Real-time Spline Editor for Condo Mover Tools

Movers required a spline system, so we’ve made a real-time spline editor for these mover tools. Splines can be useful for multiple items in the future as well, such as a fence generator.

Items with spline support will have an “Edit Spline” option with grabbers for adjusting the spline. For example, Mover Path has spline support.

You can remove points and add points between points using the editor or hot keys (such as Delete).

Insane updates, I have no words. The updates have been going crazy and I’m all for it. Condo Building keeps reaching new levels, I can’t wait to see what people make in the future.


this is AMAZING!! also i’m curious- once Minigolf and Ball Race SDK stuff are completed- do you still plan on making more new courses for minigolf and ball race in future? cuz I really like official courses a lot (:


Yes we will still make official maps.


This is gonna expand condo building so much. All the possibilities we can make with the move tool. Is it possible to use the spline tool on fx string items?

I read this whole update with this face :open_mouth:

I am speechless. With these tools I will finally be able to create amusement parks with functioning attractions… I had already done something similar in the past as some may know, but this changes everything :exploding_head:
Best game I’ve ever played.


The mover train looks absolutely awesome. I’d love to use it as a condo monorail/train system. I’ve wanted that for so long. Great work!
