I thought Wedbing was the perfect name – its Wed, and Bing, put together simply.
So why the change?
- It doesn’t quite make sense as a ‘Does what it says on the tin‘ title if I add any new features.
- It’ll stop autocomplete keyboards changing wedbing to wedding (argh!).
- And right now, the new title amuses me.
I’d like to add a few more features, so I hope that helps justify the name change.
First is this new Font & Symbol system, which may or may not be a time-saver. It’s in ALPHA now, feel free to download it and try it (although I really need to make a how-to video soon).
This feature will help with the next – a visual library generator, populating a place on earth with all the library items in the default library, and even other libraries (woops, thats not a feature just for gateway airports!). From this I hope to make a video so people can scrub through at will, and see the objects / facades in a manor I hope makes it quicker to find what you’re looking for.
Following that, I want to add a ‘regroup’ feature to recreate groupings after downloading an airport from the Gateway. Laminar’s current thinking is that these groupings are artist specific and should not be part of the Gateway’s data. I disagree with this, but luckily there’s a way to re-group items that hopefully will look something similar to the authors original hierarchy.
