This group contains tools like cooling or heating. Introduced in 59.1 beta.


Contents

HEAT Heat

Description: "Heats the targeted element."

This tool doesn't produce any particles, but instead raises the ambient temperature of any particles lying beneath the cursor. By sliding the cursor while holding the mouse button, this tool works about four times as fast.

If you hold left mouse button and hold shift, it will heat up particles much faster.

COOL Cool

Description: "Cools the targeted element."

This tool doesn't produce any particles, but instead lowers the ambient temperature of any particles lying beneath the cursor. By sliding the cursor while holding the mouse button, this tool works about four times as fast.

AIR Air

Description: Air, creates airflow and pressure.

This tool doesn't produce any particles, but rather raises the ambient pressure in the area beneath the cursor. By sliding the cursor around with the mouse button held, you can cause the tool to increase pressure easily four times as fast.

VAC Vacuum

Description: "Vaccum, reduces air pressure."

This tool doesn't produce any particles, but rather lowers the ambient pressure in the area beneath the cursor.

PGRV Positive Gravity Tool

Description: "Creates a short-lasting gravity well."

Not an element, click this tool anywhere to increase gravity in the selected area, particles will thus be drawn into that area. Newtonian Gravity must be enabled for it to work.

NGRV Negative Gravity Tool

Description: "Creates a short-lasting negative gravity well."

Not an element, click this tool anywhere to decrease gravity in the selected area, particles will thus be pushed away from that area. Like PGRV, Newtonian Gravity must be enabled for it to work.

MIX Mix Tool

Description: "Mixes particles."

A tool that mixes particles by randomly changing their locations in the area beneath the brush.

WIND Wind

Description: "Creates air movement."

A Drag tool of sort. It creates pressure/velocity- positive from behind the direction in which you are moving the cursor, and negative in the direction it is moving. This makes it able to "drag" powders and liquids. WIND can also be used to send a strong current of air at a target.

PROP Edit Property Tool

Description: "Property Drawing Tool. Use to alter the properties of elements in the field."

When selected, an input box will instantly appear. The top contains the name of a property such as ctype or temp which is usually edited via console, the bottom box contains a value which will be set. Once you pick a property, click "OK" and then start drawing like a normal brush. Using this you can "paint" on properties. If you want to make CLNE clone DUST you would click it, select ctype on the top and type dust into the bottom. To change the life of DEUT to 1000 you would click the DEUT, type life into the top and 1000 into the bottom.

Sign.png Sign

Description: "Sign. Displays text. Click on a sign to edit it or anywhere else to place a new one."

Allows you to places signs around your simulation for whatever purpose you need them for. Click on a sign to edit or delete it, or click anywhere else to place a new one.

For linking to other saves, type {c:(Save ID)|(Display text)} to link. For example:

{c:184767|Click here!}

For linking to forum threads, type {t:(Thread ID)|(Display text)} to link. The thread ID is found at the end of the URL for the thread.

For creating clickable button that generate a spark when clicked, type {b|(Display text)}. For example,

{b|Click me!}

For linking to a save search, type {s:(Search Text)|(Display Text)}. For example,

{s:user:jacob1|View my saves!}

Typing {t}, {p}, or {aheat} into the sign will show the current temperature, pressure, or ambient heat where the sign was placed.

If any of these special placeholders are used, they must be the only text in the sign. For instance, the text "Temperature is {t}" will not work.

Sample.png Sampler

Description: "Sample an element on the screen.""

Element clicked with this tool will be chosen as the element to be drawn from button 1 (left-click). Default action set for mouse button 3 (middle-click).
