Able to Increase and Decrease Size of Objects // Wishlist

In the build window, have a drop down menu of how many times the object can
be in size. Maybe starting at 1/4 then 1/2 then 3/4 then 1 then 2 then 3
then 4 and so on. This way people can make much different looking builds
with regular panels and roofs and even huge gardens or tiny gardens. Or huge
forests, etc etc etc.
I hope someday we can have this.

If I recall, object scaling was voted the #1 feature request on AW's polls.
It's a great idea, and apparently has the most support :O

I think the trouble with the scaling command is about how the objects, once
scaled, may encroach on another's land.

[View Quote] There's one of two ways to do this.

One, grab the original value from the registry, and have the object
scale stored in the property database, then use a formula to then
determine if the object would encroach in it's new size.

Two, store the new registry values per scaled object.

I think the registry should be stored in a database such as mySQL and
that you could link to remote registries if given permission to.

There's the same problem with move and rotate. Perhaps the world server
could set a "Maximum Scale Factor" for the world, as in no objects can be
scaled more than x times the original size.
