v2.7.1 UPDATE:

Anyone who has reinstalled TS4 using the new EA Desktop app may have ran into a UAC error when trying to turn on BBB's Organized Debug. This is due to EA Desktop's file permissions defaulting to read-only.

v2.7.1 finally has an automatic fix for this, and BBB will fix the TS4 permissions on your behalf.

If you have User Account Control turned on (the windows "are you sure?" messages), you'll be asked to allow "icacls.exe" to run. This is normal and is BBB attempting to repair your TS4 permissions for you.

Click yes and BBB will be able to turn on Organized Debug without issue.

=========

Originally designed for Create-A-World's Lighting Editor, the color wheel control for lighting is coming to Better BuildBuy.

It's still accessed via shift+clicking lights in build mode, but now the control includes complete control over the lighting color. For support with existing builds, the control still includes the EA preset swatches.

Yes, the lighting does share through the gallery.
No, the lighting does not make your build CC.

=================
ORIGINAL RELEASE INFO

Better BuildBuy v2.0 is now public!
v2.0 brings huge improvements like no-CC Organized Debug, better kit filters, and a new build mode light editor.

Thanks to all of my patrons who participated in the beta and release candidates, and for bearing with me while we worked through the latest patch issues.
(This video is somewhat incorrect now, but it's still useful for getting started)

New Features:
Having Organized Debug on no longer causes your lot to be marked as CC.
That means you no longer have to restart the game constantly.
A Light Editor has been added to build mode, with a dropdown for light selection.
You can access it by shift+clicking any light.
Debug/LiveEdit Objects for packs you don't own will no longer appear in the catalog.
Kit pack filters have been split into their individual kits, so you can pick exactly which kit you want to see.
Added a Desync dialog message. There's a few occasions where Organized Debug can be left in a bad state, for example after deleting your resource.cfg. This new dialog will show when organized debug needs reset. If you get it, all you should need to do is restart your game once and then you can continue using it as you normally would.
Did you know you can use TOOL in build mode if you're using Better BuildBuy? Grab TOOL here!
Better BuildBuy Quick-Start

You don't have to use Organized Debug for TOOL. Just don't check the filter.
Do NOT use debug or liveedit cheats. Use their respective filters instead.
Do NOT install buildcam or expandable catalog separately. They're included in BBB.
Filters are different! Please don't ask where your CC went.
Filters work as follows:
Hide Maxis - Hides all regular objects that aren't debug, liveedit, or cc.
Debug - Shows debug objects, replaces the need for the debug cheat.
LiveEdit - Shows LiveEdit objects, replaces the need for the liveedit cheat.
Custom Content - Shows Custom Content objects. Off by default, be sure to check this if you want your CC visible. Filters stay set even when you close your game, so you'll only need to turn CC on once if desired.

Press 1 (number row) to toggle catalog size.
Press Tab to activate Freecam mode in build.
If you'd like to use Organized Debug, open the game and open your buildbuy filters. Scroll to Better BuildBuy and select Organized Debug. You'll receive a pop-up and will be told to restart. After doing so, Organized Debug is active.
If you're completely new to BBB, I recommend watching my original tutorial.
Install Instructions
FOLLOW IT WORD FOR WORD
1. Delete any existing copies you have for BBB.

2. Open the TwistedMexi's Better BuildBuy v2.2.2 Official zip and drag the Tmex-BetterBuildBuyfolder inside to your mods root. (No subfolders!)

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

NOTE: On Mac, .zip files may automatically be unzipped when downloaded. In that case, drag the newly downloaded folder to your mods.

Uninstall Instructions
Hate to see you go, but if you are, it's best if you do the following first:

1. Open your game with the mod installed.

2. Turn off Organized Debug in your filter panel.

3. Close your game.

4. You may now delete the mod.

AVOID DOWNLOAD idk what is wrong with this as I installed it right but my cc stopped showing up and i included it in my filters. couldn't find it again until I uninstalled...

Marli SaldanhaNov 19, 2022

I've already installed three versions, and I've followed several tutorials and when I go into construction mode to open the tab and configure the options, it gives a window saying that I installed it wrong and in a deep folder or in the wrong place, but I'm following the tutorial correctly. Even so, this error window is opening and I can't even choose expansions to build with it alone. Need help.

Marli SaldanhaNov 19, 2022

Eu já instalei três versóes, e já segui vários tutoriais e quando entro no modo construção para abrir a aba e configurar as opções, dá uma janela dizendo que instalei errado e em pasta profunda ou lugar errado, só que estou seguindo o tutorial direitinho. Mesmo assim ta abrindo esta janela de erro e não consigo nem escolher expanções pra construir só com ela. Preciso de ajuda.
