I was hoping someone could tell me how I enable the multiple buying of an object.

You know how with some objects, like counters or chairs you can keep buying them until you hit the Esc button? How can I turn this on?
It would be very useful for landscaping objects where you want more than 1.


thanks!

I don't know how to hack them so they are like this automatically but when I want to place multiple objects I hold down Ctrl when I click on the thumbnail and I can place as many as I want.

And if I'm placing chairs (the ones that don't have automatic multiple placing, I mean) around a table and want them to be facing the correct way I can do that as I go by using the appropriate keys to change their direction as long as I don't let the Ctrl key up until they are all placed.

As long as Ctrl is down when you click, you're fine (or at least I am). You can also hold it while you rotate with the mouse...

I didn't know about holding down the Ctrl key when you're buying an object. That is very useful to know.

Oh and I had a 2nd question but I figured that one out, so that's why the title refers to 2 questions, I forgot to change that bit.

thank you Jumbuck & Damon!

If you want to hack it, it's in the OBJD section somewhere. I know in IffSnooper there's a checkbox for 'keep buying'

I'm not sure how it would work in IffPencil2, though, but the OBJD is the place to look for it. LOL!!
