1. Here’s what you can do in this thread:

.: Chat and discuss anything building related! This is a given…
.: Post your own buildings, tips, and tutorials.
.: Enter the contests (when there are some).
.: Ask for other people's critiques, tips & opinions or vice versa*
.: Submit your request for a certain prop, building, etc. I don’t normally take requests, but if there’s something intriguing, perhaps I will make it.


2. Things NOT to do:

.: Please don’t spam, troll, harass, etc. You know the usual forum rules stuff.
.: *If you are going to critique someone’s creation, please do not be rude and insulting. Be constructive and helpful.
.: Don’t just post something and then leave. It’s not Show Off Your Latest Thread.

4. Amazing Architects

Here are links to some fantastic creators who either specialize in the building editor and/or have some quality buildings (at least 10). They are all imo worth checking out and ALL have at least a few high quality building creations. If you want to suggest anyone, please provide a link and I will check them out. However it is based on my opinion if they will be included in this thread. Some of these creators are inactive too.

5. Building Tips

[*] Shift and Ctrl are your friends in the building editor. I use both of these, literally for every single building I make. If you don’t know, holding Ctrl while holding a part moves it on a vertical plane. Shift moves it on a horizontal plane.
[*]To rotate a body or roof, put it on any connector part. By using tab, you can move it in any direction you want.
