Version 1.2 Tool

This mod adds two things to the designer:
- Attachment Editor to manually edit connections, disconnect or connect parts in place as well as visualise connections.
- Orthographic Camera + Blueprints to view your aircraft in plan view and compare it with plan view blueprints, to scale.

Attachment Editor

To visualise connections, enable the checkbox. When in this mode, parts connected to the selected part will be highlighted green. To be able to see hidden away connected parts easier, this mod is recommended. PC users can right click on green (connected) parts to disconnect them. Touchscreen users will have to use the "Disconnect" button and select both parts to disconnect in turn. To connect 2 parts, click "Add Connection" and follow the displayed instructions: select the first part, then the attach point on that part, then the second part, then the attach point on that part.

Orthographic

By default, the camera will switch to orthographic (flat view) mode when viewing the craft from exactly side/top/front on. This can be achieved with the "set view" buttons. It can also be enabled manually with the "force orthographic" checkbox, for an isometric effect. There are also two other checkboxes, for controlling other settings like whether to hide the platform, or hide the little attach point rectangles you get at the roots of wings (for aesthetics).

Blueprints

To add a blueprint, select the "Open Image" button and choose the path to the image. Then you can set the width or height (in metres) with the size boxes and tune it to the offset specified, as well as rotate it by the rotation input. The offset is relative to the main cockpit. You can save and load these settings using the boxes at the bottom of the window.

Android Users Only:
The built-in file browser can only access files in the game's save directory (Android/data/com.jundroo.simpleplanes) due to android's permissions or something. So when adding images, use a file browser to move them somewhere in there, perhaps into your own images folder in there.


Acknowledgements:
Thanks to SPMC for a copious amount of testing and especially Blue0Bull for waiting so long for the android version and helping weed out some bugs.

    Android design drawings cannot be used for the cover of the work, and there is a chance that the arrows will ignore the problem after modifying the connection point. Can you solve these?

    @Mtech Put the Image(The thumbnail that you wanted) like what you see in the Orthographic settings, After it move the Image a bit far away from the default view, and upload like normally and put your camera in-front of the Image( The Thumbnail you wanted ) and it will be saved and the picture will be your builds thumbnail.
