View Full Version : Placing neighborhood decor at right angles?
21st Jun 2011, 04:28 AM
Is there some trick to rotating neighborhood decor at right angles? I'm trying to lay down alleys, and it's impossible to get them to lie straight on the direction perpendicular to the one they like. There must be something obvious that I'm missing, mustn't there?

I'd like to try this. I know the thread is old, but could you explain what you mean by the triangle bracket? Thank you!

I believe Josepina is referring to the "<" and ">" (a.k.a. the "," and "." keys).

If you mean that you want to rotate objects in different directions (other than facing them the standard "north" "south" "east" and "west") You can turn on 45 degree angles. That will let you turn them NE, NW, SE, and SW. the cheat is as follows:
boolprop allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation True
Be sure to type the spaces between the three sections!
Capitols aren't required, they just help to show what words are in the cheat.
To turn the cheat off and revert to standard turning, type the cheat again, but replace "true" with "false" ie:
boolprop allow45degreeangleofrotation false
If you've never used cheats before, you'll have to press and hold
all at the same time. That will open the cheat window (which is also a command window if you get more into the game's mechanics.)
When the 45 degree cheat is on, be sure you use the rotation keys to turn objects NOT THE MOUSE.
in other words, press [<,] or [>.] to turn the object. Don't spin it with the mouse.
Hope this is what you were looking for :D
