2.7.2 UPDATE:
Please re-update to 2.7.2 to fix any remaining issues with TOOL's menu not showing in Better BuildBuy.

2.7.1 UPDATE:
Implemented temporary patch for EA scripted dialog issues.
Added necessary data for For Rent Pack and world.

2.7 UPDATE:
TOOL now has a Stay Open option in settings that will repeat the last command until the user click cancel.
By feedback patrons' decision, the stay open option is on by default. If you prefer not to use this option, please be sure to turn it off in settings when installing a fresh copy of TOOL.
Fixed a specific scenario where the move grid does not disappear, triggered by deactivating all objects before clicking OK to the move prompt.

====Original Post====
Want TOOL in build mode? Grab Better BuildBuy as well!
TOOL v2.3 brings a new feature called Rotate Around Center. It's a toggle in the rotate dialog that lets you choose whether group rotation will rotate all objects around their own axis, or around the group's center.

This video demonstrates the difference.

Many players requested this, as it'll allow them to rotate TOOL-only builds after they've finished, instead of having to plan which rotation they want to begin with. I hope everyone enjoys.

Rotation Around Center added to Rotate Dialog
Added an improved rotation indicator. The circle is now a gradient.
Dim = 0. Bright = 360.
Positive rotation amounts will always move dim -> bright.

TOOL Quick-Start
The usage is the same as regular TOOL, except you will automatically be placed in TOOL mode any time the TOOL dialog is open.
Toggle TOOL in build mode by pressing Shift+T
In addition, shift+clicking surfaces will automatically place a group box marker. This can be used in combination with the Toggle Group button to highlight many objects at once.
When the TOOL extension is open, ctrl+z and ctrl+y will handle the TOOL undo/redo instead of the buildbuy undo/redo. Buildbuy undo still works when TOOL is closed.
If you're new to TOOL entirely, refer to my original tutorial.
Install Instructions
⚠ FOLLOW IT WORD FOR WORD. ⚠
1. Delete any existing copies you have for TOOL.

2. Open the "TwistedMexi's TOOL v2.3.4 Official" zip and drag the "Tmex-TOOL" folder inside to your mods root.

3. That's it! Don't restructure or move the files in any way.

This flagged up on better exception πŸ˜” hoping this isn’t the reason my games broken πŸ₯²

Hy Mexy, I have no chance it wouldn't let me install it. Maybe because I have a Macbook Air 2015??

this wont allow me to enter my game

AppleSas βˆ™ Dec 20, 2022

So, I've had a few very infuriating issues with the mod. For one, the TOOL organizer aspect makes it so I can't see some items in the menu no matter what I do or where I look and makes it so I can't access some of my cc. I have to exit the game and just not touch the organizer aspect. But if I do that and use the filter to, say, look for a specific pack for an object. When I clear out the filter, even though I never touched the organizer or the bb.moveobjects filter (I type it instead so I don't lose objects), it automatically turns off my moveobjects for absolutely no reason. In the future, I would appreciate if this could be fixed or if I could use the TOOL aspect without having to have the organizer. I have found no use in the organizer and honestly, it has only hindered and made my gameplay more difficult. Like, never have I ever had to rage quit the sims until I used this mod. Also, if you can figure out a way to have it so every object I've edited with tool doesn't get sent to my inventory right as I enter the game or household (regardless of it moveobjects is on or not), that would be great. Like, I'll enter the game and like 20 objects I've carefully placed are suddenly just gone. Either sold/deleted, or they're in my inventory. Objects I've resized? Suddenly back to their normal size. Honestly this mod has been so frustrating with all these bugs. If you can fix these I would appreciate it. Until then I'm deleting the mod. It's just not fun playing the sims when the mod completely breaks my game.
